If you, like me, have northern residents descend on you in January and February, it's time to spruce up for your guests.
A good way to do that are after-Christmas sales. One that could be good is Crate & Barrel's, which sent out a postcard advertising up to 60 percent off in its "winter clearance" sale starting Dec. 26.
I saw this Marimekko shower curtain that would look great in my guest bathroom, already on sale for $24.95 from $49.95.
So watch out for those after-Christmas sales. I know what I'll be doing Dec. 26. -- Marcia "Bargain Hunter" Pounds
