I don't like crowds. Crowds of hurried people, long lines... those pretty much just suck the joy out of holiday shopping for me. I mostly try to go on "off" days, like a Tuesday morning, when stores aren't so busy. I also do more and more of my shopping online.
Here are a few of my favorite deals so far:
- Amazon has a lot of great $5 magazine subscriptions. Titles include Redbook, Woman's Day, Popular Science, and more. Personally, I think magazine subscriptions are great gifts because they last all year long. (I can't tell you what I bought, because the person reads my blog.)
- Money Saving Mom tells you how to get toys from Kohls for $3.81, including shipping. I am debating about a toy I have in my cart- not sure if it's the best price I can find yet.
- Amazon also has all kinds of toy deals, including Fisher Price Doctor kits for $6.49, LeapFrog Tag books for $7.49, and more. I may or may not be purchasing any of these deals. ;)
- Sidenote: having a child who can read makes it a little harder to keep Christmas secrets, LOL!
And, of course, I try to use CashBaq whenever I shop online. Just clicking through the CashBaq site on my way to a retail site usually earns me cash back, and sometimes they even have extra coupon codes that I can use. I've earned $27 there, doing nothing more than the shopping I would have done online anyway.
