Feeling the holiday shopping stress creeping up on you? Relax. Here are 3 quick tips to help save money with holiday shopping (maybe you've tried these before, but never hurts to use them again, right?):
1. Shop at home first!
Check out your closets and shelves, really! Search, get creative and possibly come up with 1 or 2 or even more gift ideas right from your own home.
2. Stay away from malls: Shop online.
Being in person in the stores is an easy way to spend more than you budgeted on gifts. Stick to online shopping if possible, and your budget. When the holidays are over, you will be so happy you did, and so will your wallet.
3. Hit the Thrift Stores.
Seriously. A cute pin, brooch, vase, scarf....who knows what else you can find at a thrift store for so much cheaper than a regular mall store! Wrap your finds in pretty boxes and save a bundle!!
