5 ways to spend less on holiday gifts

The holidays are finally here and winter break is incoming!

That means soon you’ll have no school and no homework. Plus you’ll have enough time to hang out with friends, visit family, and sleep in. And you’ll get to stuff your face with all kinds of delicious foods and nobody will judge you for it. The only downside to the holidays is the cost. Presents for everyone! Thankfully ValoreBooks wants you to get festive without breaking the bank. Here’s how:

1. Make a budget.

The first thing you should do this holiday season is decide exactly how much money you can afford to spend. Set that number in stone. Don’t exceed it.

2. Make a gift list.

In context of your budget, make a gift list that includes all the people you’re shopping for. That way you’ll know exactly what you need and, if you price it out, exactly how much it’ll cost you—all this before you even step foot in a store.

3. Shop early.

There’s nothing worse than last minute shopping, which makes it harder to find what you need at the price you wanted. It can also lead to impulse shopping, which is never a good thing.

5. Skip expensive wrapping paper and holiday cards.

It may not seem like a lot of money, but when you start buying expensive wrapping paper and holiday cards for everyone on your list, the cost may prove larger than anticipated. Save money by using paper or bags recycled from last year. Even newspaper makes a good substitute. As far as cards are concerned, only get them for people who won’t be attending your holiday festivities. If, for example, you’re sending gifts through the mail.
