Mini mall survival guide

Shopping for Christmas can make you feel like the Grinch. These tips will help you escape with your sanity— and your finances—intact.



From the December/January 2013 issue of the magazine.



  • Shop back to front. Most stores place their sale racks where they’re hard to see.

  • Wear noise-cancelling headphones. Music encourages shoppers to spend more time in store.

  • Designate a checkpoint. Pick a location and time in case you lose your kids—or your spouse.

  • Get the app. Mega malls now have mobile apps that help you navigate and offer deals.

  1. Good tip to shop sales first, but I don't think I'd go to the mall with noise cancelling headphones on.
