Yes, this actually works. In fact, it works most of the time, and in weird outlier cases, can save you $1,500.

Behold the microcosm of the decline.
Much has been made of the bigger-is-better consumerism of American culture, with holiday cheer frequently overwhelmed by the associated commercialism of the moment: Christmas is merely a month-long...
