Savvy Holiday Shopping

30 November 2009
This time of year many people are searching for ways to buy holiday gifts without breaking the bank. With so many families struggling financially, saving money while shopping is very important. There is all sorts of advice all over the internet on how to help accomplish this goal.

My advice is very simple. First, make a list of who you need to buy for and what you'd like to get them. Set a budget and stick to it. Try to shop early and keep track of what you buy. I've bought Christmas gifts in June, then made a notation in my planner telling me what I've bought, who it's for, and where I've hidden it. Take advantage of great sales like Cyber Monday; you can get quite a few gifts during this sale without spending much. Shopping online can save you a lot of money and I've found some great deals this way. I find that if I plan everything I buy, then hunt down the best deal on the items on my list, that I spend much less than if I just hit the stores hoping to find the perfect gift.
