It seems that if you want to get the BEST deals in the whole year, in Christmas-celebrating countries, then do your shopping on January.
My friends has confirmed that indeed on January his sales dropped to a very dangerously low level. This is probably due to most people’s spending ability already spent and exhausted on Christmas.
Just look at the following crazy deals I encountered when I was casually strolling on Birmingham’s city center, with no intention to do any shopping:
Women’s boots for only 5 pounds (about Rp 90.000 !)
I was not able to resist this one though ! One pound for a book ?? I ended up buying some…
Owh… I hurt myself with my overloaded baggage, filled with these books (among others). Must – not – visit – Birmingham – on – January …..
