Saving During the Holidays

December 1st, 2022

It's easy to get caught up and overspend during the holiday season but with utilities and other costs on the rise, it is more important than ever to consider ways to save. 

  1. Set a holiday budget and make a detailed shopping list. Write down exactly how much you can spend on gifts this season (making sure to factor in what you'll spend on other things like decorations, food and travel). Then, make a list of who you are shopping for and how much you can spend on each person.
  2. Take advantage of National Free Shipping Day. On December 14, hundreds of stores offer free shipping with no minimum order amount.
  3. Watch for sales and store discounts. Signing up for newsletters or text alerts from your favorite stores means you will be alerted to their upcoming sales and possibly sent discount codes. Shopping around sales and utilizing discount codes can help you stretch your holiday budget even further.
