One holiday down, two more to go; I personally visited a couple of different houses this Thanksgiving, and, yes, I ate at all of them.
I love to talk so I enjoyed the various conversations that I was able to partake in at each different residency. One conversation that stayed consistent was shopping!
So I, being the deep thinker that I am, put just a little extra thought into this whole shopping ordeal. So here’s the dilemma, everyone of course wants to save money, time and stress this holiday season so how can they do it is the question at hand.
My outlook is … I have NO idea. Shopping throughout the year is a stress reliever but during the holiday season it is soooo frustrating. Of course, I have ways and antics that might or might not help with the stress. It’s an alternative though and I know that at least one person can benefit.
I went to a total of about six houses but have three major concerns to address. One is traffic; the solution for that is, do NOT wait until the week before Christmas to go and get all of your gifts. Around NOW is probably the best time because there are tons of deals and most retailers are restocking from Black Friday.
The next is what to get; well research gift ideas if you are not the type to ask people what they want or, you could NEVER go wrong with gift cards and a lot of retailers have amazing deals on gift cards as of now.
The last thing is where to go; hmm go to whoever has the best commercials J you see the best commercials around this time.
In addition to that, consumers should really take advantage of us bloggers and writers, especially here in Oklahoma like we really take care of you.
There is a site that gives some cool information and tools on holiday shopping so take some time out, visit the site, say a prayer and HAPPY SHOPPING. http://okc.about.com/od/christmas/a/christmasinokc.htm
