1. Go straight to the clearance section in stores. If you see a good deal on items, think about who may like them on your Christmas list. I love when Toys R Us has big clearance sales. This helps a lot!
2. Sign up for free rewards programs at stores. Throughout the year, I get great coupons,discounts, and gift certificates for places like Toys R Us, CVS, and Hallmark. I shop there already, so I might as well receive bonus discounts for doing so. Every little bit helps!
3. If you are going to use a credit card, use one with a cash back bonus. There are two that we use. One earns me Amazon.com gift certificates, the other gift certificates for a variety of stores.
4. Sign up for Swag Bucks. This is a totally free search engine that rewards you for using it. 1-2 times a day, you "win" points for using them. The points can then later be redeemed for gift certificates! I save mine throughout the year and then cash in for an Amazon.com certificate.Plus, if you get others to sign up, you win every time they do!! That being said, please sign up here so both you and I can benefit!!
5.Subscribe to Cake Mom because I have some fantastic giveaways coming up through the end of the year! There are lots of great gifts you can win!
Got any other great ideas for saving money this holiday season? Share in a comment below!
