Saving Money All Year Long for Christmas

by Mary

I keep a list on me at all times of the people that I buy Christmas gifts for. Whenever I'm in a store, I always browse the clearance, sale, and closeout racks. If I find something that I know would be perfect for someone on my list, I save money by purchasing the item now while it's on clearance and putting it away for a Christmas gift.

You can find housewares, home decor items, basket items to create interest focused gift baskets (i.e, for the gardener, cook, artist, etc.), clothing. Winter clothing
will be on clearance during the last months of winter and
early spring. Take advantage of this by purchasing great winter clothing as gifts for the Christmas season!

Shopping all year long for Christmas is the best tip ever! Not only does it save a tremendous amount of money, you will be ready for Christmas without all the stress of the last minute rush. Buy now...gift later, is the best policy.

You can also save on Christmas ornaments and decor items,
gift wrapping, gift bags and boxes, and Christmas music during the after holiday sales. Usually these sales are 50% - 75% off normal prices!

Tip: You can do this for all the Holidays. Shop after Holiday sales to use items for that holiday the next year.

Happy Holidays!

My husband and I have a piggy bank into which we put all our loose change. Come Christmas time we have a little bit of money for indulges. Often it goes toward groceries.
