Can You Wait (for A Little Bit)?

Here are some tips for you in this holiday season. Before shopping, ask yourself some questions:

1) When is your Christmas party or dinner? If it's after, maybe certain gift shopping can wait. You may think that there are not many varieties to choose from. But surely, you will get some awesome deals that saves you at least half of what it cost.

2) Is the item that you are going to get can wait? Your list can be in several categories. If it is something that you can wait after Christmas, again, you are going to save a ton.

3) Are all the gifts for the grown-up? If yes, can you agree on what specific item you are going to get? Here is how my husband and I normally do. We may have certain things that we both want to get.

Instead of spending tons of money for Christmas buying each other something, we agree on certain things and pay attention when it is going to be on sale. Then, we will get them. Big money saver and everybody's happy.

Apply the same rule when you need to buy for the other grown-ups.
