Make a list. The pressure of last-minute shopping can cause shoppers to make impulse decisions and often spend more than necessary. Make a list of gifts you can afford for the number of people you have to buy for. You’re much more likely to stick to your budget that way.

Start shopping early. I’m not talking about five months early, try doing your shopping a month early. Just so you don’t have to enter the malls on Christmas eve and wrestle your way to a sweater.

Online shopping. Best thing invented since sliced bread. You can shop at different stores at the same time from the comfort of your bed or couch. Plus stores like Amazon have 24 hours delivery service just in chase you forgot that watch your dad wanted.

Printable Gifts. Has anyone heard of Groupon, it’s a site that you buy spa packages and a bunch of other stuff for anyone on your list. Just buy, print, and give; Simple fast and easy.

These are my quick tips to help you this holiday season. Good luck and happy shopping until tomorrow.
