I'm beginning to get a little confused.
It's not about the appearance of holiday decorations in the beginning of October...
and it's not about the home shopping networks pumping out holiday cheer for three solid months.
It's all of the early promotions and sales that are throwing me off of my holiday savings game.
As the retail market became more desperate over the past few years, their sales have begun earlier and earlier.If they want to win your money, they try to do it early on. But with the Black Friday sale prices that begin three weeks early and emails offering discount coupons similar to post-holiday clearance prices, is anything even "full priced" anymore? I know to expect some sort of discount when doing my holiday shopping, but it's hard to predict how low they'll really go.
What trends are you seeing in holiday sales?
When do you plan to do your shopping?
