Around the holidays things get very hectic. Everyone is rushing around shopping for gifts for family and friends, traveling , and either going to or hosting holiday meals.
Slow down! It is easy to get caught up in the holiday maddness, but with these tips you can save time , save money and hopefully save your sanity :
1. Scour the circulars– Friday’s and Sunday’s newspapers are goldmines for these. Check the coupons in the circulars (Staples usually has a $5 – 10 coupon). Also , be sure to take a look at the daily/weekly specials.
2. Centralize your shopping. Try to limit your shopping to 2-3 stores. This can easily be done at a place like Staples. Get an desk organizer for your kid’s teacher; learning software for your kid, and a tech gadget for you hubby. http://www.staples.com/holidaysavings
3. Eagle eye your email. Be sure to register / sign up to receive emails and e-deals from your favorite stores’ websites.
See? That was easy!
