I don't speak this language, do you?
First, stores will continue to offer good deals for way more than one day.
Second, the online bargs are gone in a hot one--ask my daughter, who grumbled for an hour last night trying to find a new TV online.
Anyhow--did the "After Christmas Sales" reward the patient among us? Do they have those anymore?.
My late mother used to cut out pictures of say, a winter coat, and attach "play money" in the amount we could spend in the After Christmas Sales--and then she wrapped that. A picture of a present! Seems endearing now--when we were kids, though, it was less than thrilling.
Oh, well--happy shopping!
