Tina, here.

After-Christmas Sale emails are flooding your inboxes this morning, and will be for the next couple weeks. But Buyer Beware. This is when I see the most egregious mistakes being made by shoppers and those whose check-out carts I find myself spying on/observing. I just know they want me to get all up in their business and explain why buying those jeans with stars on them is a bad idea, even though they're only $19.99. But I'll be positive and say I feel sure everyone can make perfect purchasing decisions during this open hunting season. Hmmm.. to quote the Queen, if only. How about this, I'll be your point rider as long as you'll heed the rules in the Field Guide below. These are the mistakes to avoid and the only shopping list you need for maneuvering the quarry of sales. Tally ho!
