There are only 18 shopping days left until Christmas. I’ve compiled a list of holiday shopping tips to get you through the season complete with ridiculous stock photos.
1. Online shopping is the best. Maybe it’s because I used to work in a toy store or maybe it’s because I hate people – probably a combination of the two – but the thought of shopping in a store between Black Friday and Christmas Eve makes me want to die. Enter: online shopping. I don’t know why everyone isn’t doing this. You can order everyone’s gift while binge-watching Hallmark movies
in your sweats pantsless. Win-win-win.
2. Order early if you can. If you’re shopping online, you don’t need to be paying $50 for expedited shipping for a $10 hat. It’s silly and unnecessary. When you see a good deal, just get it.
3. Coupon codes, Ebates and other money-saving promos are your friend. Retailmenot.com is a great site for coupon codes. Sign up for emails at stores where you frequently shop. The amount of promo codes I receive on a daily basis is ridiculous. And helpful. Use Ebates to get cash back. Free money, yo.
4. Buy throughout the year. See something in August that your husband wife mom dad brother sister uncle minion would love? GET IT. Just don’t forget about it come December. I might be speaking from experience.
Happy Shopping, friends!
