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, both in the number for sale and the number you may purchase. New this year is a purchase limit of five.
