Shopping Advice

Set a spending limit. This is imperative so you don't have buyer's remorse when the first credit card bills arrives. In fact, you can avoid the use of credit cards altogether by setting aside some money each month of the year, and then you'll know exactly what you can spend with none of the post-Christmas regret.

Make a list. Like the head honcho of Christmas shopping himself, you should make a list and check it two or three times. Make sure everyone who needs to be on the list is accounted for, and be sure the items you choose for each person are within your spending limit (see above). One of the easiest ways overspend is through impulse purchases. If the item is not on your list, but happens to truly be perfect, bump another item from the list.

Bargains are your secret friend. One tendency that needs to be rooted out is the feeling that you must spend a certain amount per gift. Where did that idea come from? It is silly. If you find a gorgeous cashmere sweater on sale for 50% off, there is no need to spend the amount you saved on supplemental gifts. All this does is absorb funds and create unnecessary additional shopping. The sweater is enough. Don't feel guilty for not spending a certain amount; instead feel savvy for finding a smashing gift for a price that leaves a little something for a rainy day.

Start early. Christmas, and other gift giving occasions, occur on the same day every year. Why is it that so many people are rushing frantically to the 24-hour Christmas Eve last chance sales? Unless you like the challenge and stress of doing your shopping with huge crowds of desperate and rabid shoppers, get it done early. The rationale that the sales are better if you wait just doesn't make any sense. Why take the risk that you may not have the time or selection to find what you really need? If you start early enough you can bargain shop much more effectively.

Shop online. Avoid the crowds and stores altogether and shop in your bunny slippers in the comfort of your own home. But this year more than ever, start early (see above!) due to the supply chain issues.

Merry Christmas!
