Get ready for Boxing Day

I know it's only December 20, but that doesn't mean you can't start thinking about the biggest shopping day of the year.

Besides, if you're like me, you've waited to make that big purchase until the big sales hit on Boxing Day.

Future Shop has this great system in place where they let online shoppers get in on the Boxing Day Sale two days early.

That's right, you can get Boxing Day savings at starting at 8 a.m. on Monday night. That's Christmas Eve.

And in order to make the online shopping experience more pleasant for you, while you're buying a new TV or digital camera, enjoying a mug of egg nog, and waiting for Santa, Future Shop has come up with "Five tips to prepare for online Boxing Day shopping." I'll paraphrase here. If you want the full details, get them here.

- Update your account information
- Sign up for Verified by Visa
- Take an early peek at the deals (all the better to make your list!)
- Don't give up (back orders on some items will be accepted)
- Queue up the best deals (wait for the system while you are checking out; refreshing your screen will cause you to lose your place

What's on your wish list for Boxing Day? Let me know in the comments.

LUNCH: Noodles from a mall cafeteria. What can I say? I was doing some Christmas shopping.
