Did we say shopping?
Veterans of the sale have learned to bring only the amount in their budget that they are willing to spend. Of course, re-entry is free so they've also learned to head to the nearest bank for an ATM when they find that I-can't-live-without-it perfect item that's slightly over budget.
Glorious Grab Bags
For the unbelievable price of $1 CMS offers grab bags filled with all kinds of random scale items. Available on a first come, first served basis the supply is limited, when they're gone, they're gone -- and they always go fast. Great for kids, they can also be used by adults to spark creative ideas on how to use the mix of items inside.
You're going to want to save another $1 for a raffle ticket -- or you can get 6 for $5 and try your luck to win one of following:
