Surviving the Boxing Day Sale Madness is really very easy.
1. Lock your door.
2. Don't go out.
But seriously folks, I did venture out into the madness. I did find that if you get to the malls around opening time, (8:30 in the case of Mayfair Mall), you do get about an hour or so before the crowds seriously start frothing and foaming at the mouth, and it's not too bad. But you need to know what you want and where you're going. A quick surgical strike.
I hit Eddie Bauer and hit the big time. I bought over $600 worth of clothes for only $190, including a $180 Gore-tex windbreaker for only $45.
