Holiday spending help with H&R Block’s Emerald Advance ($300 Mastercard Gift Card Giveaway) #HRBlockLoan

Most every family I know has been affected by the state of the economy.  I know that we all seem to feel the “pull” on the purse strings this time of year, with wanting to give something special to everyone on our list for the holidays- but we don’t always have the means to do so.

Have a plan. Make a list. If it’s a budget you have, or a list of items, have it with you so you can follow it- and stick to it.  Stores KNOW we are weak, and they market to our weaknesses…all of those adorable little holiday themed anythings at the end of aisles, and taunting us while we wait for our turn to check out…all of those little things add up fast.  That extra $20 or so you throw in for the adorable or fun factor would serve you a lot better to splurge for a babysitter for an hour, or to put towards a vacation fund.  Make that list, check it twice (Santa even checks it twice) and stick to it!  If you find something that you really think is marvelous, think about it for a while, don’t just purchase it.

Check for sales– I know this seems like a no-brainer- but I was just this morning set to head out and get that one last item on my gift list  and did a quick google search for it.  Guess what was $11 cheaper on Amazon.com than I’d have paid in store- AND I won’t have to pay shipping – or gas to drive to the store for.  Not everything will be less online but it definitely pay off to look around a bit if you can.

Take advantage of Price Matching– SO many stores are price matching identical items that competitors are selling.  What does this mean for us?  Well, if you bring that circular to the store (or circulars, for multiple items), you’ll probably take a bit longer at checkout, but you’re also eliminating the need for stopping at multiple stores…and the temptation of add-on items near registers at the other stores you won’t be shopping in.  I’m the guiltiest person of add-on items- I see it and think “that would be so cute for their stockings!” and voila, I’ve got that item times THREE in my cart….none of which I’d planned to purchase.  (Which is really a lead in for my next tip:)

Stick to your list.  You have a list of ideas or simply a budget to stick to- so stick to it.  Those add-ons and impulse buys ADD UP FAST and it really, really pays to stop and think before buying.  Do my kids need more chapsticks?  No, they do not.  No matter how cute all of the 3pack sets are in cute candy and character flavors.  But adding 3 3-packs to my cart means adding $4.99+ 6% tax TIMES THREE to my spending, and when you look at it that way, the chapstick we have here at home already will do just fine, thankyouverymuch.

Ultimately, there really isn’t a gift worth going into debt for.  Plan ahead for holiday shopping if you can.  Even a few dollars a week all year adds up.  In a pinch, H&R Block’s Emerald Advance could come in handy- but I encourage you to stick to your budget even if you DO use the program!

  • I am a planner, but I always go over my budget with Christmas shopping.
  • I am not a planner per say - I just like to get things that my loved ones need or want. Sometimes it might just be something that I see that I know they will love. I use what money I have - so I guess that is my budget.

  • For my taxes, I have a shoe box with each one of the month's separated and as I shop or donate things that tax deductible, I just put them in that month's section so I will have all of my receipts right there waiting for me at tax time. I also have a "general" section for important tax information that I will need by the end of the year. It's all there in one place!

  • I stick to the list at Christmas. I have 2 children and they get 4 gifts each from Santa and one each from Mommy and Greggy. Plus they get the opportunity to go out shopping for each family member and wrap their gifts as well. We also donate to a personal favorite cause, Safe Haven. Next year, my daughter will be seven and I will take her to vunteer at a local shelter. While we love getting lost in the excitement of Santa Claus coming; I'm delighted to see how excited they are to help and give to others.

  • I'm sort of a planner. It's hard to buy for my sons now that they are growing up and not so much into toys any more.
  • I put all our tax related receipts, papers, forms, etc. into one labeled file as we march through the year. At tax time all I have to grab is one folder and our Turbo Tax program and we are good to go.

  • I try to put all my recipts in a monthly envelope. Along with that I have an envelope for what comes in the end of the year.
  • When our children were small, we made a few simple decisions that has made Christmas an enjoyable experience and taken all of the craziness out of the gift-giving. First, we set a per child budget. Second, we explained the meaning of the season to our children and told them that the Christ child received three gifts from the Magi and they could each pick any three gifts they desired so long as their choices stayed within the budget. Finally, for those few surprise items that they find Christmas morning are always small and inexpensive and purchased on sale throughout the year. We have never spent an outrageous amount on gifts and we've never had to return anything. We've never had unhappy children on Christmas morning. And every Christmas is proclaimed "The best Christmas ever!"

  • I keep a folder with all tax-related items
  • I make a list of all the people I want to buy for and then thinking about each individual I personally find the perfect gift for them. Sometimes I go to stores and sometimes I order online. I love giving gifts and seeing their faces when they open them. I will share on facebook and pinterest. Thank you! Happy Holidays!

  • I definitely plan out holiday gifts. I ask for wish lists in october, determine a budget, hunt for coupons, keep a spreadsheet of spending. In the end everyone is happy.. especially me and my wallet!

(Gas/vehicle, business expenses, groceries, charity, etc) Each month I use that to file receipts, etc into. Then at end of month, I file it and put new empty month in. It's easy to find stuff come tax time

  • I have to plan as I'm disabled and on a low fixed income, so planning for holiday shopping is essential not only to find the best bargins, but also to accomadate my need to use a wheelchair or store provided electric chair..so I have to do some research for the best prices and best handicapped accessibilty before I shop..

  • I don't have a strict plan but do have limited funds. I used cash and when it's gone, it's gone.
  • I don't plan well. As a single mom, I often struggle, but somehow, through God's will, things work out! This year my son wants a tablet. I would love to get him that!

  • I buy a month before Christmas. Saving ahead of time by stocking up on gifts.

  • I stick to a budget and use a store that offers layaway (to keep everything hidden from snooping!!) I also pick things up that are on clearance through out the year to use that I know will still be age appropriate for my children by Christmas time, and items for my "gift closet" as well so that I wont spend a lot of money if I find that I need to give an unexpected gift.

  • We have a strict budget because we have 4 kids and I only work PT from home. I did my shopping online this year and it was great!
  • I like to plan so there are not "doubles" of gifts
  • I always check amazon first for my gifts!
  • I am a planner and do most my shopping online through co ops or cyber monday deals. I also like to have all my shopping done by the 2nd week in december i hate going to the stores with all the last minute shoppers, no fun! :)

  • I am a very strict Christmas shopper...I give myself 2 days to shop - one day online, one day in stores. We have a list of people to buy for, and a budget for each one. I am more incentivized to find deals because I want to make the most out of what I am buying for each person. Of course, when it comes to my husband and kids, I am a mush...I always have 1-2 last minute items that I buy for them. I can't resist!

  • I tend to Christmas shop year around. If I see something on sale that I think is a great gift for someone I'll go ahead and get it. It does help when December comes that I already have a lot of my gifts already purchased. I'm also a planner and if something is on my list I'll try to wait to buy it when it's on sale.

  • I am on a strict budget for the Holidays! I must watch what I spend. I watch for sales from Amazon daily to find the best deals on items! I save a lot of money when I do this!
  • I'm a planner and try to stick to my budget.

  • I shop for holiday gifts all year long. Whenever I see something go on sale that I know would be perfect, I snag it and put it away so that I only have a few small things to buy closer to the holiday. [email protected]

  • I make a list of items that I think would be fitting gifts for people well in advance. I like to shop online and watch Amazon prices and compare with other merchants. Price matching is nice, too!
  • Following @brettmartin via twitter - @momof2boysz
  • First I brain storm a list of general ideas of gifts I'd like to get for everybody, then I go on the hunt for the best prices! I like to try and find the items when they're on sale, and always do a search for promo codes before purchasing!

  • I plan which people I want to shop for, but my planning ends there! I just buy things I think people will like. As long as I spend enough on each person, I don't really worry about specifics.
  • I'm not a huge planner, and now that I have 2 kids, I need to keep to a budget. I wasn't very good at developing a budget this year, and I did go a bit overboard (we're now saving some gifts for birthdays, so it isn't the end of the world).

  • I did very little shopping for gifts this year and last. I enter giveaways all year long and use the prizes as gifts. I do purchase a couple of gifts to fill in the gaps but the majority of the gifts are things I win. This has been a fun money saver.
