But I digress. I was standing outside the one and only store I planned on visiting on Boxing Day - People's Jewelry Store. I mean who doesn't want a gift card from there? As I lean against the pillar outside watching the people line up at various stores...waiting in buyer's anticipation, I begin to wonder about the whole Boxing Day thought process. I look around me and no one is lining up to get into the jewelry store. Well, me and a couple of older people....that's it! I look across the way and there is a line zig-zagging through the mall outside of La Senza. This is where I begin to wonder. I can get diamonds, gold and other gems at People's for up to 60% off today or I can line-up and get crappy underwear for the same price that I'm going to pay for a beautiful necklace made of tri-gold. In fact, you don't even have to line-up if you don't want anymore. Most of what you can find in the stores you can order online, and during the season they mostly offer free shipping.
- Shopping on-line rocks.
- Gift cards can be fun to receive and use.
- Reaffirmation that going to the mall on Boxing Day is not for me.
