Have a plan for what you want to buy, assign one person to get in the checkout line while the other person finds the merchandise you came for (saves lots of time), and remember that items may not be in the usual locations. Smile at the other customers, be grateful that you have money to purchase presents for people you care about, and don’t forget to spend a few dollars with the independent business store owners who will be very glad to have your business any day of the year.
