Do you love a blogger that has style you want to emulate or style that is similar to that of a gift recipient on your list? Follow them during the holidays to get deals on what the bloggers favorite brands.
Agree to Limited Gift Exchanges
Talk to your friends and family and agree to a limited gift exchange. Either choose not to exchange gifts or put a max budget on it.
If you’re unsure of which specific item to buy, you can do your research online to determine which product has the best consumer reviews. Check sites with user reviews and ratings, such as Amazon.com or Cnet.com. You can also check out your favorite bloggers for reviews. My husband loves No Film School for film product review. Seek out bloggers that review the niche of product you are searching for. They have a knack of showing how the products fit into their lives.

I am so bad at budgeting and finances. I really need to start an emergency fund!
It is so easy to get carried away and overspend around the holidays! Budgeting and finding deals is important.
Great tips! The sale at Capital One 360 this weekend is awesome for people who can do it.
Those are all really great tips! I’m hoping I can keep my spending under control this year.
I should be fine – my Christmas shopping has been done for like a month already 🙂
So far I have been sure to only spend what I actually have! We save up for all large purchases here.
Haha what a funny way to put it–yes, I know exactly what you mean by hangover and that is definitely something I do NOT want to deal with!
Ooh you covered some really awesome ideas here. I especially agree with the gift exchange idea. Luckily my side of the family has been doing a gift swap for a handful of years now. It saves me SO much money – and stress too!
I’m looking forward to all the deals I find. nice thing is we prepare for these days to come.
I am always looking for ways to save and shop year round… it really helps… I do need to get a good savings account going, though…
These are all great tips! I totally have to make a list and stick to it. Too many times I’ve ended up giving too much and getting myself in real trouble.
These are really great tips! January can be such a tough month financially due to Christmas and Black Friday!
Nevermind the January hangover, my budget is always hung over- November, December, January, February, augh!!! At least these tips help. Ebates helps a lot!
I think I need to open a checking there, that $100 bonus would be great!
