    I save on holiday shopping by shopping all year long and picking up things I find on sale. I also do swagbucks and cash out for Amazon Gift cards all year long and then just save up my Amazon money to help buy Christmas gifts. =)

    I do most of my shopping on line. With the free shipping deals you can’t go wrong.

    i do most of my shopping online so i save on gas. I shop and compare prices. Last year we wanted to get my daughter the melissa and doug art easel. it was on sale through their site but i kept searching to find a better price. I got it through amazon w/ free shipping for just 59.95. I love when toysrus and kohls offer free shipping. I also by items when they are on sale and put them away. We bought books for our kids this summer and I have hid them till Christmas. and of course GIVeaways!! I love to enter giveaways and for toys, books and gift cards!

    I go through rebate sites like Ebates and SHop at HOme when I shop online. That combined with coupon codes = BIG SAVINGS!

      Denise, that’s a good tip. Did anyone brave the stores yesterday? I was too tired!

    I shop on Black Friday at my some of my favorite stores. I love Target and Walmart. JCP and Kohls always have great deals too. I love to compare prices and you can also get great deals the Christmas Eve and the day after Christmas. I haven’t shopped Christmas Eve in awhile but I love the day after Christmas shopping for Christmas decorations!

      Janice, I have found great things at Kohl’s before! That’s a super store with a lot of finds!

    I try to set a budget, and find coupons and deals for everything!

    I have to confess I still haven’t shopped nor taken advantage of these deals – too tired and overwhelmed this past weekend! Which is not to say I’m not getting stressed about the holiday shopping already!! I am really appreciating these good tips from you all!
