It’s hard to believe we are almost in December and with this month upon us brings a whole lot of stress for the upcoming Holiday season. Dare I say it? … Christmas shopping!

Don’t get me wrong, I do love some good old retail therapy every now and again, but as I have mentioned in a previous post, I strongly believe that online shopping is the way to go instead. Believe me, you will save money (don’t worry you have still find good sales, if not more with online shopping) and its a cinch!

Here is trick for catching the sales to your fav stores/sites – sign up to be a member on the webste by creating an acount! By doing this, it will allow you to usually get email newsletters sent to your inbox every week or so. As much as I hate getting “junk” mail sent to my phone, it ends up saving me money when I catch the sales or get access to member only online sales using promo codes.
Promo codes are also key! Lets use Roots for an example. If you google |Roots + Online Promo Codes + December” – you will see a special code that is active and can be used upon checkout when you buy your merchandise! These usually work for every store, you just really need to dig and research to find one that works (sometimes certain codes only work on certain merchandise).

Last but not least, take a look at group buying websites! (cough*…TeamBuy…cough*) You can get phenomenal deals for a fraction of the actual value. Perfect for anyone on your shopping list – TeamBuy has a special gift option, so the reciever of your gift won’t be able to see how much you actually spent!
