5. Schedule Sales, Deals and Discounts into your Calendar
Saving a calendar reminder of when your favorite companies are running promotions will help make sure you take advantage of these deals and save money and ultimately help you stick to your budget. Common times for sales promotions include Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and the last two weeks right before Christmas. Those last two weeks before Christmas are the final stretch for busy families to get gifts in time - businesses know this and want to convince you to shop with them. Keep in mind shipping times when shopping the two weeks before christmas.
Another great way to save money during the holiday season is to shop sale items. Some companies have a page on their website dedicated entirely to sale items. Freshly Picked has a dedicated sales page with diaper bags, baby moccasins, and more on clearance.
We hope this has given you some insight on how to budget for festivities to come. Planning ahead and knowing your expenses will set you up for successful budgeting this holiday season. Best of luck and happy holidays!
