Picking Through the Post-Christmas Sales


Braving the post-holiday shopping bonanza holds no appeal to me. That’s not to say I don’t love a good deal, just that I prefer to do my sale hunting from the comfort of the couch, wearing elastic-waisted pants without shame. So while others brave the rain, snow, wind, whatever nature’s throwing at us, I’ve clicked through the inventory of all my favorite stores, all while polishing off the rest of the Christmas cookies. I love the holidays!
