This year I was determined to be organized with my holiday shopping. I wanted to be done shopping early and enjoy the holidays and not be stressed with running from store to store. Usually, I shop during my lunch break as during the weekend we're busy with the kids activities or when we do have some downtime I prefer to just relax with the family rather than dragging them from store to store. I even refrained from heading out to the stores on Thanksgiving and Black Friday, instead retreated to the comfort of my bed with laptop in hand. This year not only was I done with a majority of my shopping early on in December, I managed to buy a lot more for less! I would say 90% of my Christmas shopping was done online!
Sometimes online shopping can be a deal breaker when you factor in shipping costs. However, its so easy to find a coupon code online to go with that online deal. It gets even better when that coupon code includes a free shipping code. Especially from now till Christmas you will find plenty of coupon codes to get that item shipped at a great discount. Not only does online shopping save you money when stacked with a coupon code but it also saves you time plus gas money!
I've saved so much this holiday season that I'm going to use that saving to splurge on a weekend getaway with the family in the New Year! I never buy online without a coupon code, even for family travels I head to travelocity with coupon codes in hand.
A penny saved is a penny earned!
