5 Holiday Shopping Tips
Holiday shopping can take weeks and some times months. I know people who shop year round for holidays which is great unless you are like me and forget that you bought things. I do this a lot. 🙁
With proper planning, your holiday shopping can maximize your budget while getting everything on your list. Here are a few ways that help us tremendously during holiday shopping.
5 TIPS FOR HOLIDAY SHOPPING
1. Shop with a list.
I have a list running at all times for every family member that I regularly shop for. I never shop without a list because having a list keeps me focused and helps me to avoid impulse purchases.
2. Shop early.
I go to stores early on sale days for the best selection. Getting their early ensures that I get exactly what I came for.
3. Shop often.
Since stores are constantly getting deliveries, I tend to make a lot of trips to my favorite places. This means I find the best stuff and get the best deals.
4. Combine deals.
Many stores allow you to price match, combine coupons and even offer rebates. I view all of the circulars online at home before shopping and map out a strategy to maximize my shopping dollars.
5. Sign up for loyalty programs and/or company newsletters.
I get some great coupons and find out about some unadvertised deals just by signing up for loyalty programs and/or company newsletters. Every store I shop at has some sort of program or newsletter.
