With our current economy I feel like everyone is trying to save a buck. We manage to live very frugally on a single family income. And this week is no different with both of my boys having birthdays, us hosting Thanksgiving, birthday parties, and xmas shopping!
Here are a few tips to stretch your dollar this Holiday season:
1. Coupons! Need I say more? I have been getting lots of flyers in the mail w/ tons of coupons from Target, Babies R Us, etc. A lot of times you can ask for coupons at the register or the store will have flyers posted somewhere w/ valuable coupons and current sales.
2. Have a plan when you leave the house. If you plan to shop on Friday, check out sales the night before, the best deals, etc. Know where you are headed and who has the best deals/coupons. Here is a site to check out for in-stock listings from 50,000 brick-and mortar retailers to find the best bargains in your area. Milo.com I haven't used it yet, but saw it in a magazine and plan to use it for my Thursday night planning session! ~wink~ Just type in what you need and your zip code for real-time prices and store availability, including how much you'll save!
3. Enter bloggy giveaways! Sounds like old news, but you can use the free products for yourself or use them towards Holiday gifts and save some cash! Here at The Gift Closet I will be giving away another CSN Stores GC this week, and starting December 1 I will be hosting the Twelve Days of Christmas giveaways. 12 Days of great giveaways!!!
Would you help me spread the word about the Twelve Days of Christmas giveaways here at The Gift Closet by posting my button: Thanks a ton!!
Have a blessed day and see you tomorrow for Win It Wednesday!!
