Today's tip: online buying

Since the buying season is almost at hand ...

If you're purchasing any large items ... like power tools or electronics ... consider buying online at the store's site and arranging for pickup at the brick-and-mortar store (provided the store offers that service, of course).

I tried this on Black Friday last year. Got in and out of the store in no time flat, and no worries that the item would be sold out. It also avoids those nasty shipping charges ;)

And sometimes, you get a nice surprise. The last time we bought something, the item's online sale price was $10 cheaper than the sale price in the store!
