My thoughts in your brain…

Sales

There’s no sales tax in Oregon.  This makes shopping here for a Californian like a permanent 8.25% sale everywhere.  That coupled with sales around the 4th holiday and other bonuses a real deal.  The only problem is the lack of electronics stores.  Sure they’ve got Wal-Mart and Best Buy and Costco, but nothing like Magnolia or even Frys for real depth.  Purchases yesterday were mostly at Barnes and Noble. But hey, 20% off on the item, plus 10% member, plus that phantom 8.25%… it adds up!
