The Thanksgiving weekend is the beginning of one of the busiest shopping periods of the year before Christmas and Hanukkah.
The stores have huge holiday sales. This means that holiday gifts will be discounted. You can find great deals on gifts for your friends and family.
Some retailers offer things like free shipping on purchases over a certain amount. This means that they will pay for the delivery of your gifts if you spend above a specific amount.
Other stores will offer 25% off of seasonal products. This means that you pay 75% of the usual price. If a sweater that usually costs $100 is on sale for 25% off, then it would cost $75.
It’s a good idea to take advantage of these great holiday sales. Go shopping and have fun!
The best thing about the day after Thanksgiving is going holiday shopping.
I hope this week’s Real Life lesson helps you get excited about going out and getting some wonderful gifts for the people you love.
