8. Don't forget to bundle up
Unfortunately, when you live in a city with blistery temperatures, you may have to spend more time withstanding the elements than you'd prefer.
If that's the case, don't be afraid to layer. Hats, scarves, and gloves are your friends. No store discount is worth catching a cold so, if necessary, overdress like Sheldon did in "The Pancake Batter Anomaly" (Season 1, Episode 11). You might look like a yeti, but you're likely to escape the lines free of any nasty bugs.
If you're not planning to stand in lines any time soon, might we suggest watching episodes of The Big Bang Theory on Thursdays at 8/7c.
