Shopping Procrastinators Hit Online Jackpot

If you still have some holiday shopping to complete, you're in luck. Retailers nationwide are trying to unload unsold holiday merchandise in an effort to make way for the spring and summer inventories that will soon hit the shelves.

Now may be the right time to head for the shopping malls and take advantage of year-end sales. Besides the traditional post-holiday price slashing on gift wrap and cards, you may find you can take care of next year's holiday gift shopping as well!

Even the e-tailers are getting into the act - spend a little time shopping around on the Internet and you will find that online shopping sites are also offering end of the season bargains. For example, eToys and other online toy sites are slashing prices by as much as 75 percent.

Yahoo.com is helping online visitors find great deals by assembling a post-holiday sale site dedicated to Internet merchants offering shopping bargains.

Online shopping reportedly increased over last year by 49% this holiday season.
