Beat The Holiday Shopping Rush

It will be December in 2 days and are you ready for the Christmas shopping? The economy is still volatile but it does not mean we have to spend a fortune to put little tokens under the tree for your love ones.

I intend to do my Christmas shopping soon. There are so many discounts in the malls right now and this is the right time to avail of the offers. Are you ready for the holiday rush?

Here are some tips to note to help you beat the holiday rush.

Make a list.
Allocate a a budget and strictly stick to it.
Do not buy over-the-top gifts unless there is a need to. Simple gifts and even less costly ones are better because it comes from the heart.
Check out flea markets for some unique finds, haggle!
Take the buy-one, take-one offer. It's really helpful because you hit two birds with one stone and some establishments allow you to pick the second product from a different category.
Shop in the morning to beat the traffic and hustle and bustle of the mall life.
Redeem your reward points if you have any loyalty cards and re-gift the free items you will claim.

I hope you're days before and during the holiday season will be stress-free and fun-filled. Time to put those gifts under the tree then!
