Sale season can create insanity sometimes. Even rational shopper can become irrational when it comes to shopping for sale items. Many stores offer sale programs from weekend sale, year’s end sale to midnight sale. This so many sale programs do create a certain form of shopping hysteria. With so many discounts available, who could resist it? Here is some of the irrationality I happened to witness.

If you take more than one family member, you may want to assign one family member to go to the food section while others go to the clothing section or hardware section and you yourself can go to toys section. When your shopping is almost done, you may ask one of your families so start queuing in front of the cashier, it will surely safe you some or even a lot of time.It turned out that shopping during sale season containing more brain exercising as well as physical exercising element than ever!
