Hello again, savvy savers! I know many people may think this title of this post seems off, but its not! I will let you in on a secret… the day to start shopping for your next years Christmas list, is the day after Christmas! That’s how I do so anyway.
I shop early, spend less, and generally have my holiday shopping, including most food items, purchased by Thanksgiving! I never spend more than $300.00 for our holidays and we generally have huge holiday celebrations, as you can see above! With this thought in mind, I am starting a new weekly series on Christmas shopping! Each week I will discuss an idea on how to prepare for the holidays on a budget, so when the big day actually arrives you will be ready to go, with a few hundred spent, instead of a few thousand!
So, week 1 (for this posting anyway) and we have 281 Days To Christmas!
This week, pajama ideas! So, we need to think outside of the box here. Currently, at my local Walmart there are infant and youth shirts, some with character and many plain, for $1.00! There are also fleece plaid pants, fuzzy pants, and the like! Pair them together! Create pajama sets for the kiddos and wee-ones for this coming holiday season! Remember to buy a size or two up, and once home, wrap them in tissue paper, and store for the holidays! A measly $2.00 for a pajama set, that’s something to rejoice about!
Homework for next week: Estimate your holiday budget, how much you can put aside monthly for this endeavor, and list everyone you wish to buy for.
Here’s to next week!
