You will also want to check stores for special hourly sales. Lots of retailers offer special deals for late-night shoppers or early birds. Scheduling your day ahead of time will help you hit up as many sales as possible.

Don’t Forget …
Make a checklist for yourself before you head out. Bring ads for each store with you, as you may need them to prove a “lowest price guarantee.” Choose a secure purse or way of transporting your money for safe shopping.
