I hope you all are well and had a wonderful Thanksgiving? I know I did, I definitely ate my body weight in pie and I am kind of regretting it (sorry not sorry) it was well worth it. Ugh still after thanksgiving I’m still craving pie any-who now that we have talked about pies. Lets me just start off by screaming at the top of my lungs . . . THE HOLIDAYS ARE HERE!! WHOOO HOO ok I’m done. (I’ve been wanting to do that for a month now)
Now that I got that out of my system, Lets talk about the season of giving and how hard it is to shop for other people than ourselves sometimes. It’s so confusing for everyone, every brand is having a sale or some type of special and we end up getting over whelmed. I know if I get too over whelmed I leave the store or establishment (cough forever 21 cough) (clears throat) excuse me something must have been in my throat lol. So to make it easier on us all, I have tips to use when going christmas shopping.
The tips I am giving is something that has helped me over the last few holidays. I got sick of struggling to find gifts for everyone and also gifts in my price points and it has helped me stay focused on what I really want and need and to not get distracted by all of the shinny things.
Have a budget – Theres nothing worse then going over budget and realizing you might have overspent
Make a list of people who you are buying for – Self explanatory.
Brainstorm gift idea’s of who you are buying for – Think of that person and their personality and think of things that will be useful to them.
Research – Before we do any shopping, research any retailer that might have deals online and in stores including free shipping, promo codes, or percent off. Research the items/gifts that you want to give and see who has the lowest price or even the better deal for that certain item.
Go Shopping – you’ve done your research, have your budget, had your coffee, and you have your list now its time to shop till you drop. Good luck!
I hope these tips help you this season as they have always help me.
Until Next Time
