But while the department stores and the malls will be all a flutter, let's agree on this: It's going to be cray - and we mean cray, not crazy. So, if you want to take part in a bit of shopping without losing your mind, keep it local. Here's what you can find near you while supporting local businesses.

Also, keep in mind, not every place releases their sales ahead of time, so you kind of just have to get out there and embrace the sales as they reveal themselves to you. Use your intuition to guide you to the best sales, your inner shopping guru knows all.
