Stress-Free Last-Minute Holiday Shopping

The holidays are almost here. Many people do not know this about me, but I LOVE holiday shopping. While it stresses some people out, it gets me excited and ready for the upcoming season to spend quality time with family and friends. Here are some tips for last-minute holiday shopping.

1. Don't be afraid to shop last-minute.

Waiting until the last-minute does have its privileges. The stores have cleared out of most people and the week before Christmas, the best time to shop is after 3PM. I get a ton of shopping done during that last week before Christmas because the stores are empty.

Make a list of everyone you need to shop for so you don't forget them during the last-minute scramble and start crossing them off the list. While shopping year-round might take the stress off yourself, and although it’s stressful, last-minute shopping helps you cut through nonsense and forces you to focus on the task at hand.

2. Look for the best deals.

Holiday shopping shouldn’t leave you broke, which is why looking for the best deals always makes the most sense. Think about it. These retailers don’t want to keep the products on their shelves. They want to get rid of them. Remember to look for the best deals, so you can save the most money. Deals often last until the very last-minute too!

Finally, the real trick behind my successful last-minute holiday shopping is using Plenti. Plenti, launched in 2015, is a rewards program that allows people like you and I to shop and earn points at the stores we already shop at anyway. I love using Plenti throughout the year, then using points I’ve earned towards savings for holiday shopping. Whether you need to stay protected on the road with Nationwide or love shopping online, Plenti is such a great tool.

For example, I felt better about splurging on a holiday outfit at Macy’s and booking a kid-less vacation as a gift for my husband and myself on Expedia because I knew we were earning Plenti points on the back end.
