The holidays are here and that means we are in the thick of the busiest shopping time of the year. Lot’s of money will be spent and that means you probably need ways to save as well. Check out my five handy tips to help you save a little dough this holiday season.
Create a shopping plan
When we go into shopping blind, we tend to overspend. Create a list of the things you need to purchase and stick to it. This way, you don’t end up with goodies that you did not plan to purchase in your cart.
Search for deals
Let your Sunday newspaper be your guide. Check local circulars for the latest sales and deals to get the most bang for your buck. This will be the map to your shopping plan to help you outline where you need to go, and what you need to get.
Search for coupons
Search online and in your Sunday newspaper for coupons to save you even more money. Remember to not only check the coupon insert, but also the circular to your favorite retailer for coupons. Take the shopping plan you created and note which items have coupons, so you don’t forget to use it. Online coupons may come in the form of a printable coupon, or an e-coupon that will digitally be added to your account.
