Like we really need a reminder but today is “Shopping Reminder Day”. I am not sure who doesn’t have shopping on their mind but if they don’t, you will need to remind them. There are some who believe yesterday was Shopping Reminder Day, the 25th of November, but being so close to Black Friday I know no one was forgetting to shop unless they were in a coma.
But I will be the first to remind you, you need to do your shopping and get it done and over with, waiting until the last minute never ends up well. If you weren’t involved in shopping on Black Friday today is a good day to catch up though. The crowds should have thinned out by now and Christmas is getting ever closer!
The deals are running out. I went out on Black Friday and many of the things advertised were already sold out. Of course, more could be coming in but the longer you wait the less likely you are going to be able to find those items you really want at a reasonable price.
And if you have already gone shopping for everyone else, go shopping for yourself today. There is always grocery shopping if you get desperate enough. This is the time of year when retailers are drooling, waiting for you to come in the doors and buy something.
Or you could wait until tomorrow and go cyber shopping, but you really need to look at the deals today and plan your day out. Just remember when things get tough, the tough go shopping!
How to celebrate – Go shopping? If you can’t get out, at least make a list of the things you need to shop for. You may need to make a list of things you’ve already bought too. You certainly don’t want to buy Uncle Harvey two gifts because you forgot.
