Shopping Tips for a Stress-Free Holiday Season

Time for Christmas shopping

This year, give the gift of chocolate!

The holiday season is finally upon us. Whether you’re lighting the menorah or trimming the tree, the season means that you’ll soon be scouring the stores for the perfect gift for Grandma. Before you embark on your shopping journey, be sure that you’re properly equipped for the job. With the necessary planning, you can save money, time, and a few stress-related headaches. 

Make a List…

…and check it twice. The best way to prepare for the biggest spending season of the year is to put it all on paper. Make a list of the people for whom you’re purchasing gifts as a sure way to stick to your budget. Crossing off each name as you go ensures that no one is left behind, or that you haven’t purchased any extra presents.

Do Your Homework

Before you grab the first cashmere sweater on the hanger, do a little research on the people you’re buying your presents for. You might have known your brother your entire life, but you may not be aware of his new knife-throwing hobby. Ask around to ensure that you won’t need to give any gift receipts this year!

Shop Early

Perhaps you were the wise enough of the birds to catch the worms on display during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. If you weren’t able to take advantage of these deals, there are still plenty of great sales going on throughout the winter season. The best thing you can do, though, it to start your shopping now. You won’t want to be caught in the hectic crowd of procrastinating shoppers!

Skip the Stores

While shopping online, beware of great deals that come masked in a high shipping cost! Be on the lookout for the retailers who ship for free, and watch for free shipping days offered by some websites. If you’re careful and patient, you can save money and time by shopping online.
