It’s official! Today is THE kick-off of the holiday shopping season.
I was originally going to write “Happy Saving!” but unfortunately, today is more about spending then saving. I will admit that I’ll be out doing a bit of bargain hunting myself, so I’ll just leave you with this piece of advice: Please be responsible, folks, and remember all the good advice I’ve shared with you over the past year! Don’t make any purchase decisions that you will end up paying for over the course of many years!
Don’t forget: There are plenty of online bargains to be found, too. Be sure to check out Ebates to earn cash back on your purchases and websites like freeshipping.org and Slick Deals for other hot bargains. I am also in love with the site Want Not… mostly because she posts great deals, but also because she always makes me laugh!
Here is a bit of reading to keep you in a frugal mindset for this busy shopping season:
