Fuel up before you Shop Till you Drop
For those of you on the move, and in the zone of heading out on a shopping spree, don't forget to nourish your body with a well-balanced meal. Eat before you set sail on your shopping expedition or stop and have lunch in a restaurant, it will give you time to relax and think about where you plan to go next, review your gift list, and chalk up activities for the day.
For safety's sake, shop with a friend or companion, park in a well-lit area if you are traveling during the evening hours and into the night, be mindful of your surroundings, and wear attire that will allow you to move freely and comfortably. If you are shopping with kids, keep an eye on children, the stores will be full of other shoppers and alleged folks who may have other intentions on their minds.
