Every year I resolve to try to get a little more organized about Christmas preparation but never knew quite where to start. September comes and I start thinking about it with increasing urgency. But inevitably November comes and I am stressed out and frantically scratching out shopping lists.
This year will be different (really!) Christmas with Strategic Shopping is a wonderful guide to strategically planning your holiday shopping by spreading it out throughout the year. The book contains a month by month guide of shopping goals and ideas of things to look out for at clearance sales. I never thought about this but you can find wonderful gifts at rock bottom prices throughout the year by checking out the after holiday clearance sales. In between the shopping guides Candy weaves in her own family’s holiday traditions that are frugal but still great fun.
Candy’s other book is Strategic Shopping. I admittedly have not been much of a frugal or strategic shopper. This is largely because I don’t use much of what I see in coupon inserts and buy a lot of meat and produce. Still, I found a lot that I could learn from and try to apply in Strategic Shopping such as how to score the lowest prices on meat and produce, whole food vendors who offer coupons, using Swagbucks, mobile coupons and much more.
But if you’ve been wanting to try couponing and didn’t know where to start, Candy shares her strategies on how she gets the absolute lowest (and sometimes FREE) prices on groceries and other family needs. You may find yourself accumulating so much that you are now in a position to bless other families or ministries in need!
