Confession: The majority of the presents under our tree this year were not bought in 2010.
Yes, they were brand new.
No, I didn’t pay a lot of money for them.
Want me to reveal my budget Christmas secrets?
I thought you would!
The key to being a Smart Budget Shopper is to always be on the lookout for great deals and steals. I often take advantage of After-Christmas Sales and start buying for the next year. I don’t limit myself to just Christmas gifts. I often buy for birthday parties I know we’ll get invited to, teacher gifts for Parent’s Day Out, etc.
By purchasing gifts ahead of time…
- I avoid the crowds of the mall
- I eliminate impulse buying to meet the gift deadline
- I always have something tucked away for an unexpected gift that I might need
- Most importantly, I save my family money in the long run!
It’s the only way I shop.
I love Dayspring products! The Clearance section is incredible right now!
I love the Jesus is the Gift – Metal Tray. It’s only $7.49!
I have the 13.5″ Serving Platter – Jesus Is The Gift – John 3:16 and love it! It’s sitting on my mantle this very second! It’s only $8.49!
And the Jesus is the Gift – Ribbon and Cross Ornament is only $1.75! (75% off)
If I had extra money to spend on a gift just for me, I would purchase the Nativity Hurricane Candle Holder Trio. Just look at it…it’s on sale too!
While I was checking out the Dayspring site, I noticed they have FREE SHIPPING on orders of $50 or more (For US Residents only).
Enjoy the After-Christmas Sales!
