I would like to thank Dr King for making it easier for me to be an American.

Happy MLK Day!

Since this is Tip And Deals, I think it is noteworthy that this Federal holiday stands alone in not featuring promotions, sales, discounts, silly graphics and clearances of old inventory items.

(for instance, you don't see Ben Franklin...the only American president who was never an American president...cluing in George Washington and Abe Lincoln in on sweet deals on Dodge Ram trucks)

I would posit that Cesar Chavez Day and Native American Day share that distinction.

For now.



It is what it is.

Staples sent out an email this weekend with a MLK day sales promo.

Apparently, it's also a good day to buy custom blinds and window-treatments.

When this holiday was created I half expected we'd be seeing tie-ins to the usual January White sales. Do those even happen anymore or was that a New York thing?

Somehow I don't think sales of white sheets mixes well with MLK Day.

We got a grocery flyer from a teeny local chain many many years ago proclaiming
"I have a dream...
...of great savings!"
I think I still have a pic on one of my hard drives someplace, who the heck knows.

We had those sales in Seattle, but I haven't noticed lately, but I don't read the print paper any more.
