As we move quickly into the Christmas shopping season, I am becoming more and more convinced that the fantastic deals will not be in the traditional brick & mortar store but online. I just love that retailers are encouraging me to stay home and sip a homemade mocha while taking advantage of their fantastic online offers.
Over the next five days, I am going to discuss several ways to save money on your online shopping. Just like shopping in the grocery or drug stores, the more strategies you employ, the more money you can save. But before discussing the practical aspects of saving online, the most important thing you can to save money is to make a plan. This will help you know when to jump on a deal and when to let an objectively “smokin’ deal” pass.
I suggest you create an actual list with the items you are shopping for and keep them by your computer or have the list in your smart phone. Refer to this list as you see deals to make sure the purchase fits within your plan. And just to make things festive, here is a list of adorable Christmas List printables:
- All Sorts
- Redeeming Love
- Christmas…Your Way
- The Project Girl
- Mom & Wife
- The Frugal Style
- Paper Glitter
Oh, the time you can waste on Pinterest…
Come back over the next week where I will be discussing five specific ways to save when making online purchases. Until then, how do you save my making a plan for Christmas?
