This year get a handle on those holiday expenses before they take hold of you.
Truly the number one tip for thrifty holidays is PLAN AHEAD!
No matter what the occasion, if you plan in advance you allow yourself more time to;
Seek out the bargains and sales,
Make items - everything from food to gifts - yourself,
Use the coupons you have or find coupons on line,
Compare prices from store to store or on-line.
A prime example of this is planning for next years Christmas - this year. That means you have a list of all the people you buy gifts for and the day after Christmas you hit the stores with your list in hand. As you purchase each gift, you write the item on your list next to that person's name and put a checkmark beside it. The checkmark indicates you have already purchased that person's gift.
You have now gotten a jump on saving tons of money next Christmas and - everyone knows - some of the best bargains can be found the day after Christmas.
There are many holidays to celebrate each year. Which holidays we celebrate depends on what country we live in as well as our religious beliefs.
