It’s the start of the summer season. That means it’s time for smart shoppers to plan their Christmas presents! Don’t miss this optimum time to help Santa Claus get the gifts ready for all the good girls and boys young and old on your Christmas list. Here are 3 reasons why June is a good time to start your Christmas Shopping!
There are 6 full months before you will need to have all your Christmas presents wrapped and under the tree. No matter how hard you plan and prepare, Christmas often involves a shortage of money; plus, there will definitely be some last minute Christmas expenses that will pop up. Be disciplined now and start saving $10 (or more) each week. This will give you about $250 that you can spend on last minute presents.
Make a list of everyone who needs to be on your Christmas list. Don’t forget teacher gifts, office parties or unexpected guests. Then start thinking about what each person will like. List each name and options of things they like. If you wait to make your list on December 1, you will probably be stressed and not have time to plan out the unique, creative gifts that show you care.
Just remember to have a plan that will keep your list safe from curious eyes!
Now that you have your list, you can start watching the clearance racks when you are out shopping. Be alert when you stop at a yard sale. Do you see a brand new product that would be perfect for an add-on gift? Is there a sale on garden accents that would be perfect for the person who loves their flower gardens? The best time to buy the gifts is when you find them on sale!
Also be sure to check Amazon’s Deals & Bargains page to get some deeply discounted items. There you will find products discounted by up to 70% off their regular price which makes for some great savings! And did you know that Groupon also has a Clearance Section? Most people aren’t aware of this, so be sure to take a peek. You might be pleasantly surprised!
There are always going to be popular items that end up out of stock when it gets closer to the holidays. Buy the hot gifts now before the stores get crazy.
Are you ready to start Christmas shopping? Now’s the best time! I’ve got to go make my list and get started shopping!
