It’s that time of year again, folks. No, not the holidays — well, yes, but no — it’s time for American Thanksgiving sales, holiday sales and eventually Boxing Day sales. Now before you go full-on shopaholic (oh, great movie!) there’s some prep you need to do. Yes, shopping is fun, but it requires determination, skill, self-restraint and research to get it done properly (i.e. getting everything you need without having to take out another mortgage).
