Neither are as attractive as they appear.
I was greeted at the mall yesterday by a full parking lot and extremely long checkout lines. If this doesn’t make you bullish about the economic recovery, I don’t know what does. I assumed each mall-goer recently received a HUGE bonus check from their employer and they were begrudgingly buying things they NEEDED; but Miss Blinkin suggested this wasn’t the case.
It’s Tax Free Weekend!
How could I forget? How could I not recognize this fiscally-induced frenzy?
On this same weekend a year ago, I wrote an article title “Adrianne Curry and The Tax Free Weekend.” I wrote it when I was just a baby blogger but it’s still worth a read.
If you’re buying a laptop this weekend, maybe you can save save $50-$80…I get that.
But at a time when retailers such as Jos. A. Bank offer “Buy 1, Get 10 Free” and “70% Off” Sales – why are consumers so attracted to a measly 8% discount? (8% is my estimation of your tax savings this weekend)
In the same line of thought, how does someone like Adrianne Curry become a celebrity?
This kind of quandary is perplexing.
Readers: Do me a favor and read “Adrianne Curry and The Tax Free Weekend” and let me know what you think.
