Holiday Shopping and Time Savings Tips

"Yule Tree"

A gorgeous holiday tree for all to see!

This year some companies online are giving 5 to 25% (or more) off website purchases during the Holiday Season. Harry & David, L.L. Bean and Wine Country Gift Baskets are companies doing exactly this. L.L. Bean is including free shipping with no minimum order for their patrons. Wine Country Gift Baskets has shipping specials too. These businesses are reliable and their websites are easy to use.

Amazon, My Habit, Hallmark, Macy’s, JC Penny, Kohl’s, Target, Zappos are also offering some money saving holiday gift and shipping specials. I have found for my family long distance family members that it is cheaper in shipping/handling costs to purchase their holiday gifts online. Some businesses like Amazon, JC Penny and Target have a gift wrapping service plus holiday cards for one’s purchased gifts. This feature usually is given at an extra charge. This service is well worth the added price if one does not have a lot of time to spend wrapping gifts and standing in the long line at the Post Office. Highly recommend shopping this method for those who are extremely busy and already stretched in time management.

Hallmark has a great website where you can pick, create and mail all of your holiday cards through their site. They have many different holiday cards to choose from and you can pick a different card per person you are mailing a card to via this helpful website. Hallmark is currently offering holiday card specials. This is a huge time saver!

May these helpful money and time saving ideas brighten your Holiday Season!

Season’s Greetings to you and your family,
