How will we save money today? Today I’m going to focus on shopping around town.
Here is my tip:
Do your holiday shopping all year round. This includes birthdays, anniversaries, etc. When you see an awesome “something” on sale that might fit one of your friends or family buy it and stick it in the closet. Same thing with stocking stuffers. Ten bucks here and there all year round is much easier on the family budget than $200-$400 between Oct. and Dec. Plus you can take your time and wait for items to go on sale. AND you won’t have to fight the crowds at the mall. Another quick reminder though, when you purchase something to go in your closet – be sure to stick a label or sticky note on it reminding you WHO you bought it for. LOL I’ve actually forgotten WHO I thought something was going to be good for.
