Let the Boxing Quarter Begin

inBoxing Day

Boxing Day sales used to be a one day type thing in Canada, then they became a week long event, now they seem to start December 1st and end March 30th! This is not a sale folks, this is an excuse to get you in the darn store to buy crap you do not want or need. My Mother used to buy wrapping paper and that was about it.

If you go to one of these sales, know what you are going to buy and don’t be swayed by the first shiny bobble you see. I looked at all of my favorite electronic stores (who have been having an On Line Boxing Day sale since 8:00 PM on the 24th of December) and see a couple of things I’d like, but not enough to attempt to get into the stores for 6:00 AM when they open to get one of the 10 that is guaranteed in each store, that is for sure!

Why not enjoy another day of peace and quiet and maybe go out on Friday? Yes all the “best buys” will be gone, but at least you may not get run over by over zealous shoppers in the parking lots?
