Do you like to start your holiday shopping early, or are you more of a last-minute kind of person? I’m not ready to think about winter yet, but here we are less than two months from Christmas already! The beginning of November is when I like to start brainstorming gift ideas for my family, and then begin pricing my ideas at various stores to find the best deals. I keep an eye on sales and coupons that will help me stretch my modest budget to the max, and I think it’s kind of fun! I enjoy shopping, but not when the last-minute rush is in full force. I can’t stand hiking to the mall through crowded parking lots or having to navigate through throngs of people. I don’t like the stress of wondering if last-minute online purchases will arrive on time. I usually have my gifts sorted out at least two weeks before Christmas so that I can sit back and enjoy the holidays.
Deal bloggers are a great resource for me when I am trying to keep up with the sales and coupons that will save me money, and it’s especially important around the holidays when I am inundated with catalogs and flyers. I can visit their sites and breeze through the information they’ve compiled rather than doing all the hard work myself. That’s why I decided to participate in a fun giveaway event that will introduce you to seven other great bloggers who can help you find savings this holiday season and the rest of the year. Each weekday for the next two weeks, I will be introducing a different blogger who will share her holiday gift idea and a fabulous corresponding giveaway so some lucky fans can skip the shopping part altogether! We will be giving away a total of around $1,800 worth of prizes!
Following is the schedule and a summary of the great prizes you can expect.
