To cut costs on Thanksgiving dinner, buy ingredients in bulk weeks before and set the appropriate amount aside in the freezer that you’ll know you’ll need for your feast! This will save you from having to brave the craziness of the grocery stores the week of Turkey Day.
For Christmas shopping, research your favorite places to shop before Christmas season and take advantage of their year-round reoccurring sales to snag the best price on what you want. Starting your shopping October 1st will not only cut down on that end-of-the-season dash to get gifts and give you ample time to find the most thoughtful gifts.
When shopping, remember that nothing is more valuable than quality time with loved ones. If it’s between a great gift or a great time, choose a great time this year.
