Wow, can you believe that Christmas is less than 5 months away? This year has really flown by, hasn’t it? It seems like just yesterday I was shopping for last year’s Christmas gifts. I am a planner by nature, so I have already started my Christmas shopping for this year. Yesterday I bought something pretty cool for my sister, and I know she is just going to love it. Sorry, I’d love to tell you what it is, but she might see this post, and I want her to be surprised! Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?
I do the bulk of my Christmas shopping online. It’s so nice to avoid all of the crowds, and shop from the comfort of my own home. I also enjoy having the ability to browse several stores within minutes, instead of driving from store to store. Christmas shopping can be very exhausting and time-consuming, and I am not very patient in dealing with the high traffic areas around my city either.
When doing my Christmas shopping online, there are many resources I use to save money. It really pays to take a look around for coupon codes and promotions before making any purchases online, and especially when you are doing your Christmas shopping. If you’re not doing that, then you are probably paying a lot more than you should for your online purchases.
You may be wondering where to look for coupon codes and promotions. One great resource is NerdWallet.com. They have coupon codes and promotions listed on their site for lots of your favorite stores. Target is one of my favorite stores, and I found several great Target coupons that would allow me to get cash back on my purchases in their online store. Who doesn’t love getting cash back?!
One of the things I love most about Christmas shopping online, is all of the black Friday deals! You can snag some awesome deals, without standing in line at 2am, and fighting your way through a mob of determined shoppers. That is just not for me! While they are out there dealing with all the craziness, I’ll be sitting at home, in front of my computer, dressed in my pj’s and sipping on a cup of coffee. Ahhh, the joys of Christmas shopping online!
