I can’t believe we are already talking about and preparing for the holidays! This year has really flown by for me. I am beyond excited to celebrate more of SR’s firsts through the season and even more excited to start my Christmas shopping! Because we are on a super tight budget right now, I compiled a list of ways to save money this Holiday Season and thought I’d share them with you!
Ebates is my number one when it comes to shopping online. I love shopping through Ebates because I can shop at my favorite stores and earn cash back with every purchase. Shopping online is so convenient, but I also saved around $100 on Christmas presents last year by using Ebates! I shop through them year round!
Zulily is a great discounted site for kids and women’s clothing and accessories. I have made so many purchases through them since having H! I like to loko at their women’s clothing from time to time, but I mostly shop here for the kids. They have huge name brands that they feature like TOMS and American Girl. I love getting their email alerts for when my favorite stores are on sale at Zulily!
Shop the Sales! During this time of year, it is fairly common to find great sales. In particular, on Black Friday and Cyber Monday which brings me to my next point…
Black Friday Deals! I scored some amazing deals last year on Ryan’s present and even for clothes for the kids! If you don’t want to fight the crowds, most stores now put their sales online, too. Be sure to check them out and shop through Ebates to double the savings!
Amazon is also a great place to save money – particularly on books and electronics. My husband and I are huge readers, so we are constantly on Amazon seeing what kind of deals we can find on the latest novels. Amazon has great sales on electronics this time of year as well, so if you’re in the market for a new camera or computer, be sure to check them out there first before going to Best Buy.
Put a price cap on your gifts. We do this every year and it helps us budget for Christmas. It helps us to know about how much money we are going to spend on everyone to keep things fair and also to keep us from spending a fortune or going Christmas crazy. Not that I’ve done that before.
