How to Make Your Christmas Shopping Just a Bit Easier


Christmas shopping can be fun or exhausting—or both! Here are a few hints to make it a bit easier.

First, if you want a specific item, call ahead to see if it’s in the store. How many times have you read an ad that shows the exact item in which you are interested only to find out when you reach the shop that it is sold out? A phone call can prevent this problem.

Suppose you have trouble reaching anyone in the department where the item is located. Ask for the manager. If the manager is uncooperative, shop elsewhere. Usually the manager will get the answer you need; after all, that’s why this person who gives better service was promoted!
