Boxing Day

Boxing Day is, for good reason, one of the biggest and best shopping days of the year. The inventory may be picked over, but downtown retailers including Macy’s are desperate to clear their shelves and restock for the post-Christmas doldrums. Prices are slashed accordingly, and your competition from hung-over, late-sleeping, shopped-out consumers is greatly diminished. So get up early, wear comfortable shoes, and prepare yourself for a bargain-hunting bonanza. Remember, the money you save today will allow you to stockpile gifts for the new year—the coming twelve months of birthdays, weddings, and bar mitzvahs. Or, if you’re really cheap, next Christmas. Because it’s never too early to start planning for the holidays. T. BOND
