17 Ideas for How to Save Money During the Holidays
It’s easy to overspend during the holiday season. From presents to travel to decorations and all that food, here are 15 ideas for how to save money during the holidays.
Set a Budget
Get Christmas Lists Early
The earlier you get your loved ones Christmas lists the earlier you can get shopping and hopefully find great deals. If you can brave the crowds, Black Friday is a great day to buy Christmas presents for a discounted price. And if you can’t handle the crowds, there’s always Cyber Monday to find gift deals online.
Use Cash Only
Start Shopping Early
Buy in Bulk
If you have a Costco or Sam’s Club membership, it’s smart and cost-effective to buy frequently used items like paper plates, napkins, paper towels and toilet paper in bulk during the holidays, especially if you are hosting holiday gatherings.
