Do you have any shopping tips to share?
I love Macy's Wednesday one-day sales,but I go early on Tuesday night after they start marking down about 8 p.m. I will also take the hour and a half to drive to the Ralph Lauren outlet in Martinsburg W.Va. It's often hit or miss,but I can always count on finding basics such as blue oxford shirts.
