Christ­mas shop­ping tips for the busy soul

Sun.Star Davao - - FRONT PAGE -

CHRIST­MAS is just about a month away and with yearly dead­lines and tar­gets to meet, how are you do­ing with your hol­i­day sea­son shop­ping? Don’t you worry be­cause I got you cov­ered; here are some tips to help you bal­ance both your busy sched­ules and com­plet­ing your Christ­mas shop­ping list.

Keep a copy of your shop­ping list on your phone

Take a photo of your list or bet­ter yet, list it down di­rectly on your phone so that you won’t for­get about it. Putting your list on your phone means that you can squeeze planning and shop­ping when you have some time to spare. Also, don’t for­get to in­clude your Christ­mas party gifts and even your Kris Kringle on the list!

Go on­line shop­ping

Too busy and can’t go to the mall? Why not opt for on­line shop­ping in­stead? Most on­line shops now of­fer cash on de­liv­ery op­tions if you don’t have a credit card or PayPal. There are a lot of great deals on­line and you can do this while brows­ing on your phone, so use your spare time dur­ing the day to fin­ish off your Christ­mas list.

Use on­line shops for gift ideas and bud­get your gift shop­ping

If you are not into buy­ing on­line, you may use brows­ing in on­line shops in­stead to set a re­al­is­tic bud­get and idea of what you want to buy. This will make things easier when you al­ready have set a day or two to shop for the Yule­tide sea­son.

Save some moolah and opt for thrift shops

There are still sev­eral week­ends (five in fact) be­fore the Christ­mas week, if you want to save some cash you can go to thrift shops to search for gifts. Thrift shops is not only lim­ited to cloth­ing items, there are also things like books, ac­ces­sories, and even some de­signer items that your friends or fam­ily mem­bers might want for Christ­mas. Those are some of my tips for those busy peo­ple out there. To sum it up again there are a to­tal of 5 week­ends left and a hol­i­day (Novem­ber 30 – Boni­fa­cio Day) for you to find some time to shop. I know you, we can do this! Un­til next week!
