    Especially if you've got a Linens & Things near you that is going out of business! 70-80% off at the one near me..I saw a few of them still there too!

    There's hardly anything left at our LNTS. Here's another thing I think should die off....... going out of business sales where the business has been going out for almost a decade! (that's not LNTS but there are a few that do this)
    Yup, with donuts!!

    Our LNTs has been going out of business for at least 2 months now. I saw the sign the other day and couldn't believe they were still having that sale and hadn't closed yet (the sign was being held by a person on the side of the hiway trying to get more people to come in, so it was still open)

    There is a store here that has been going out of business the entire time we've lived here which is 2 years and 3 months now.

I think I'm going to go green and buy them all something made eco-friendly or recycled. It may take some digging, but I want to get people useful items this year.
    My family is so large that on thanksgiving all of the adults draw names and we buy for that one adult and the children. We have a total of almost 35 for dinner and gift exchange.

Actually, not buying as much this year makes it more enjoyable...less stress.
    I'm thinking about the electricity bill. How it wont be so pretty on Jan. 2. Yes, they don't waste time.

    Going out of business sales are regulated here and that couldn't happen.

    Our LnT is officially closed now, but it did have a store closing sale that continued for several months. The people with LnT store closing signs on the street corner started to get quite annoying.
