Yup! That’s right! Early Christmas shopping. I know it’s only September, but Christmas is coming up and I always like to shop for Christmas presents throughout the year.
To save money during Christmas, I usually keep my eye out for useful gifts throughout the year that goes on sale.
For example: I just bought the Bodum Coffee set below for $20.00 (original was $44)
A mini 3-cup Bodum was also on sale for $9.99 (original $24.99), so I also bought one:
I may buy a couple more to give it to my in-laws as their Christmas gifts this year. Bright and Cheery for the dreary winter rainy months… Why not? 🙂
I also saved ALL my Presidents’ Choice points to buy a BUNCH of $10 Starbucks gift cards to include in the tins of cookies I bake for my friends each year as Christmas gifts.
That’s pretty much how I TRY to save money during Christmas.
How about you? How early do you start shopping for Christmas presents? Do you also buy when you see things on sale?
