  • Holiday Shopping : Gift Planning for the Holidays










    Well, it's the first week of November and most of us have started thinking about holiday shopping -- or maybe not. Have you started planning?? Have you started shopping? Well, I bought my first Christmas present of the season and I am chomping at the bit to buy more. However, if you are like me you might do shopping here and there and then wen it comes down to the wire you discover you are missing some people and gift heavy on others...and staying on budget? That can certainly be tough as well BUT today we are going to give you some holiday shopping and planning tips that should make things -- merry and bright this season.












    Holiday Shopping Tips


    1. Make a List -- and Check it Twice

    The first thing you'll want to do before you start your holiday shopping is to make a list of all the people you would like to buys Christmas gifts this year. If you have ideas about items that you would like to purchase and an estimated price. If you love creating spreadsheets, this task can be right up your alley. No only can you keep track of who you need to buy for and what you have purchased, you can also keep track of packages you need to mail and all kinds of other things.


    2. Create a Budget


    After you have your holiday shopping list together figure out an overall budget. As much as possible try to set aside money throughout the year so you won't be paying for your Christmas gifts all the way until next Christmas. After you come up with an overall budget, you can assign a certain amount to each person on your list .The BEST idea is to set aside the money for Christmas gifts aside into a separate account that you can access when you set out to go shopping.


    3. Shop Sales and Look for Coupon Codes
