So now the madness of Christmas day is over we’re left with ‘la petite mort’ of Boxing day and more importantly the January Sales.
For those that are from Mars the January sales is when companies that couldn’t shift their rubbish knocks the prices down to clear it in time for Spring. Or if you are a certain electronic retailer named after an Indian dish, you hike the price up 3 days before Christmas then lower it again.
Frankly I like the sales. I can get stuff I actually wanted for Christmas at a lower price. Like a Laptop that was Half price, then full price then slightly less than half price. With the way the economy is for some companies this is the hail mary pass. Billions is expected to be spent by consumers in the next few weeks. Shopping centres are already filled to capacity and I don’t get paid till Friday.
