On the second day of Christmas, la la la ... There's still time to do some last-minute shopping for holiday gifts. But there's not a whole lot of days left before the shopping turns nightmarish. Yeah. You know I'm right. So today's holiday survival tip is this:
Hit the stores the moment they open to avoid crowds - many stores open an hour (or more) earlier during the holidays, which means that 8 a.m. shopping jaunt could be done by 8:30. Whew. And order any online thing you need for Christmas now, so you'll be paying surface shipping costs, not panicky FedEx.
