Holiday shopping is in full swing. If you’re like I am, you may have missed Cyber Monday.
It’s only a matter of time before every day of the week may offer a unique, discount shopping opportunity.
Here are a few suggestions:
A salesperson knocking on the front door may make you lower the TV volume and duck behind the sofa. But that may change should the porch peddler offer a spectacular, one-day-only price.
I’d gladly sit through a Kirby vacuum cleaner demonstration, if it were 75% off.
Heck, I’d even give the rep a cup of hot coffee and a Little Debbie snack treat.
So let’s make Tuesday the day door-to-door products are offered at deep discounts.
And when you hear someone on your porch, you’ll think “phenomenal savings” and not “grab the remote.”
Ever cringed when invited to a friend’s house to buy candles, jewelry, or Tupperware? You know you’ll be paying big bucks for items you can buy for half the price at T.J. Maxx.
Well, let’s make Wednesday a day where home parties “go crazy” and drop prices by 80% or more.
You’ll be able to get a seaweed wrap for $2 (originally $25) or a salad spinner for $1.50 (originally $14).
It may be time well spent. And possibly save a friendship.
Growing up, I always wanted to buy a Ronco Pocket Fisherman. The guy in the TV ad convinced me I would catch a record-breaking Walleye.
Today, with all the retail choices, products advertised on TV may get lost in the shuffle.
Well that may change when Thursday is designated “As-Seen-on-TV” Day.
No logging on the Internet. No driving to the store. No ornery salespeople.
Just watch the tube and place an order.
In no time at all, your Lint Lizard and Turbo Roaster will arrive for the holidays.
Admit it, you’ve been to a flea market and thought about buying someone a holiday gift.
It’s OK. There’s nothing wrong with buying used wind chimes or an alligator nutcracker.
Why should the malls make all the money?
Sales may increase by making Friday the day that deep discounts and once-in-a-lifetime bargains are offered.
I know I’d be smiling on Christmas morning if I unwrap an oven mitt that looks like the scarecrow from “The Wizard of Oz.”
