Ways to be Frugal During the Holidays
Staying on a budget during the holidays is important. Therefore, to make it through this season of giving, there are several ways to shop for the best prices. One way to help your budget is to start your holiday shopping now and spread your spending over several weeks or months.
Packing Christmas Decorations and Storage
If you have an empty closet that you can use to store your Christmas decorations, use the walls and the rod to hold items and stack boxes on the floor in a very organized fashion in order to accommodate all the Christmas decorations. Put them away very carefully and organized with electrical cords and other items.
Saving Chip Bags for Gifts
My family eats chips a lot. I have found that some of their favorites are in bags with a gold or silver surface inside the bag. I save these and use when I want a special bag for small presents. Also sometimes I have a gift in an unusual shape or size. Gift bags are ideal but sometimes they are too small or the paper winds up tearing. My solution is $1 shopping bags at Dollar General or Dollar Tree. They hold more and are more durable.
Thrifty Gift Giving
I Christmas shop all year. Here's how: Any time I receive a special value sale flyer from my favorite store, I purchase at least one of their on-sale items. I do this when I get those rewards points! I then use my rewards points to purchase other gifts
This year is pretty tight for us but I was reminded today of an almost devastating Christmas in 1953 when I was 13. All I wanted was a dictionary and a pair of hose. My grandmother was told about the hose and under the tree was a hose box. Hose back then came in slim boxes.
Top Part of Pre-lit Tree Not Working
I have a three part Christmas tree. All the bulbs on the top portion have a black shadow in them and do not light up. I replaced a couple of bulbs, but nothing happened. They are all not lighting. What do I do to have the whole tree lit. I bought it in December 2015.
Dog Chewed on Pre-lit Christmas Tree Wire
My new pup chewed on the bottom wire and now the pre-lit LED lights aren't working on our brand new tree we bought this year. Is there a fix for it? Or does anyone know where I can get the strand of lights that change color to replace it?
