I second this post majorly. It's also important to have a meal/sleep AND coffee plan. If you don't, you're setting yourself up for becoming hangry and caffeine headaches. My shift is 5:45 PM Thursday through 3:45 AM Friday. Here's my plan. - Wake up early morning Thursday and have a big Thanksgiving breakfast with my Mom. I usually have 2 or 3 cups of coffee in the AM, but I am only allowing myself 1/2 to one cup to make sure I don't get a headache and can nap later. I'm going to need the bulk of my caffeine for my shift. - Try to nap from like noon to 3,3:30. Even if I can't sleep, the quiet semi-sleep time in bed is necessary. - After nap, get ready and have a meal and cup of coffee before my shift. - Luckily, my store requires our managers to create a meal/break schedule even on non-sale days. She probably even has it created already. When it's time for my lunch, I'll have another meal (that I pre-packed ) and another cup of coffee. I usually wander the mall during my lunch, but not today. I'm bringing a book. Darn right I am savoring every moment off my feet. -Get home and sleep until I wake up. Good Luck, my fellow retail slaves.

I don't know enough details on how they come up with the 'compare by' prices, but it sounds pretty arbitrary. I'd have to do some more research to see if they truly are 'misleading'. I work at a major department store that carries the same things before TJ Maxx gets them, so I know roughly what the original prices really were. Most of the time, I have found the 'compare by' tags to be pretty accurate. You can usually get better deals at my store with clearance prices and our coupons,though.
