Like many Americans, I am feeling a little less financially secure these days. As the holiday season inches closer, I feel like I should be scrimping and saving, not spending and splurging.
But with prices as low as they are in retail stores, this could be one of the best opportunities for holiday shoppers to buy big-ticket items at bargain prices. Plus we can’t postpone the holiday season until a time that is more convenient for us. Try explaining that to your kids.
What we can do is make sure we’re getting the biggest bang for our buck; the best way to do that is to shop locally.
