Christmas Prep- 12 Tips in 2 Weeks- Tip 4

Strategic Christmas Shopping


The earlier you get started with your holiday shopping, the more likely you are to avoid the lineups and disappointments over unavailable sizes and colours. A bit of organization when approaching this task doesn’t hurt either.  Use a notebook to plan out who you need to buy for (and their size, if necessary), some items they might like, and where you would be most likely to find them. When you have a general idea of what your looking for for a number of recipients you are likely to spend less time backtracking to the same stores for subsequent purchases.

After shopping write down what you’ve purchased so you can feel the satisfaction of crossing some people off your list.  Choose one spot in your home to store your purchases until you are ready to wrap.  That way you don’t waste time searching the house for that one errant bag!

And what better way to get in the holiday spirit than shopping local?
