Here are a couple of ideas to save you money this holiday season:
- when shopping for gifts online I always google for coupon codes/promotional codes before ordering. You can often get free shipping or receive a discount on your purchase

- save store circulars so that in the event an item is out of stock at one store you can hopefully obtain a price match at a competitor
- decorate with live houseplants that you can then enjoy after Christmas or buy a live tree to plant outdoors. We've done this several times over the years and saved on our landscaping budget
- use low energy LED Christmas lights; you will make up for the initial purchase after a couple years of use, at which time you will see reduced energy bills...
