Saving Series: Celebrating Christmas on a budget: Tip #3

Saving Series: Celebrating Christmas on a budget: Tip #3 Extra tricks and tips

Hope you have been enjoying this series. For the final post, I'd like to share additional tricks and tips that make help in making your holiday smooth and stress free this year. Here a few ideas that I personally use.

1) Use gift certificates from department stores - JC Penney and Kohls will randomly send you $10 gift certificates in the mail when you sign up to be on their mailing list. Typically, we receive one gift certificate per month between both stores. While, it may not sound like much, over the course of the year it allows me to get a bunch of small gifts or stocking stuffers. Typically I'll get socks, boxers, winter gloves, clearance clothing, etc for my husband and socks, t-shirts, bibs, small toys, Carters outfits, etc for my son.

2) Use online credit to purchase gifts- Many new online stores will offer credit to customers to celebrate their grand opening and to get exposure. Take advantage of it! You've seen postings about the $25 credit to MyHabit store. In the past Rue La La, Franklin Goose, etc have had similar promotions. Look at your gift list and see if something offered by these stores might work.

3) Swagbucks- Using swagbucks as a search engine accumulates points that you can then redeem for credit. Using swagbucks (sign up HERE) on a semi frequent basis can earn around $10 per month just by making a simple change from Google to Swagbucks. I've cashed in to purchase my son and water table, coffee maker for my husband and other various items over the past 2 years.

4) Use stockpile items to create gift baskets- If you have been couponing for a while, you know its easy to get items cheap or free. Why not make gift baskets out of your overstock? Have a teenager? Fill a basket with health and beauty items, makeup, etc. Need a teacher gift? Fill it with back to school items that could be used in the classroom.

$10 off $25 JC Penney Coupon July 29 &30

JC Penney just released a new $10 off $25 coupon for next Friday and Saturday July 29&30 HERE.

This can be used online or instore and on sale and clearance items. While cruising their clearance and outlet section online yesterday, they have several winter and holiday outfits for kids, toddler, etc (dresses, suits) for $9.99 each. A bunch of fall and winter clothes, shoes, coats all at 75% off for men, women and kids. This coupon may be great in scoring some nice back to school deals.

Saving Series: Celebrating Christmas on budget Tip #3 Increase your income

For the past few days we've been discussing how to celebrate Christmas on a budget.

Today, lets talk about ways to increase your Christmas budget income. Simple steps that you take now, can make your budget a reality.

1) Consider a seasonal job- Many stores hire employees temporarily for the holiday season. They may be in need of cashiers, gift wrappers, etc. Most stores hire early, so don't wait until Thanksgiving to apply.

2) Consider doing 'odd jobs'-  Like to babysit? Parents may need extra babysitting help during the holidays. Offer a day of child care so they can shop. Could you tutor? Run errands? There are several small odd jobs that can be done-mow grass, shovel driveway, paper route, etsy shop, deliver phone books, etc.

3) Have a garage sale- Garage sale season still is in full swing. In my experience, fall garage sales seem to be just as profitable as spring sales. Parents are always on the hunt for good quality winter clothes, jackets, toys, baby equipment, etc no matter the season. While a garage sale is work, it is a great way to clean out your house and get cash on hand.

4) Ebay-Ebay is also a great way to get rid of treasures. Before selling on ebay, understand the seller/buyer obligations, fees, understand how to list and ship an item, etc. It may take a while to understand ebay, but its an easy way to get rid of higher quality items at a decent price.

5) Consignment stores-Adult and children's consignment stores will soon be accepting fall and winter clothing. This is an easy way to rid excess and make cash. Be aware of the store policies, consignment fee(typically 50/50) and payment schedules before dropping off your consignments. There are several consignment stores in West Michigan, each with different policies.
-Once Upon a Child (children)
-Clothesline Consignments
-Plato's Closet (teen)
-One Girl's Treasure (woman)
-Georgies (woman)
-Second Time Round Furniture
-Village Kids Consignment (children)
-Savannah Fine consignment(woman)
-Gild the Lilly
-Double Take Resale
-many more!

Thrift Store Shopping in West Michigan

Thrift Stores are a great resource to help you stretch a buck!

You can find unique items, gently used or BRAND new with tags items that are alot cheaper then shopping retail. Brand names too! I know alot of people think thrift stores are dark, dirty and depressing and that they are "above" shopping at a thrift store, but times have changed and you will find people from all walks of life shopping and most stores are clean and organized. "Thrifting" can be fun and also help provide funds for various charities.

Most thrift stores are non profit and run by volunteers. All money received from donations and thrift sales go towards helping others in the community. Goodwill and Salvation Army does have paid employees that are receiving vocational training. Consignment shops (Once Upon a Child, etc) are not considered thrift stores as they are privately run businesses for profit.

Goodwill-provides vocational rehabilitation for the disabled
Salvation Army-offers shelter, food, job training, and spiritual guidance to the poor
Love Inc (Ottawa County)-Provides assistance to low income families, help with groceries, utilities, clothing. For every $1.00 donated, $50.00 worth of goods or services are provided.

Thrift Stores in Grand Rapids and surrounding areas can be found on this cute website. Simply put in your zip code and it will pull up all thrift stores(not consignment) in your area.

A few tips:

Bring cash:since these stores are non-profit some do not accept debit/credit.

Look for specials: most will have sale items, color tag sales, 50% off week, etc

Be nice: the cashier is typically a volunteer or is not being paid very well. Have patience.

Keep an open mind: you will find "interesting" treasures from past decades but also up to date, very nice items as well. Its a scavengar hunt and sometimes you will strike out and not find anything you need.

Know the store's return policy: Most stores have an all sales final return policy. Others, like Goodwill will accept returns with store receipt. Try on clothing or have measurements if you are unsure of sizing.

You can find lots of treasure while thrift shopping. We have purchased several toys and books in excellent condition for my son that just needed to be washed and disinfected. He doesn't know the difference and you can't beat $1 or $2 for well made toys. We stop by Love Inc from time to time and I've found incredibly nice Gap sweaters, Gap jeans, TCP shirts and Gymboree outfits for $1 each!

Saving Series: Celebrating Christmas on budget Tip #2 Decrease your expenses

Saving Series: Celebrating Christmas on budget Tip #2 Decrease your expenses

Now that you have a budget, its time to add it all up and realistically look at the number. Is this something you can afford? Will setting aside a set amount for the next 6 months make your budget do able? If the numbers for your budget scare you- there are two things you can do to get everything in line-decrease your expenses or increase your holiday income. Start NOW so the numbers work in December.

Today, I'll be sharing tips on decreasing your holiday expenses.

Every family is different, but I think we can all agree that extravagant spending doesn’t make the holidays any more special. How much you’ll spend has nothing to do with how much fun your season will be, and the amount you spend on gifts certainly has nothing to do with how much you love the gifts’ recipient.

Stay on budget- If you set aside X amount for someone, STICK TO IT. During the holidays its easy to get roped into sales. If something is a "good deal" but puts you over budget, then its not a good deal after all.

Cut down on who you are purchasing gifts for- Why not draw names in your family and purchase one gift instead of a gift for everyone? This cuts down on who you need to buy for.

Take advantage of sales all year- Waiting until the December puts the pressure on and doesn't give you time to compare prices. Shop year round for the best discounts and use coupons, rebates, etc to sweeten the deal. Clearance racks and end of season sales provide great discounts. It may be summer here, but you can find 75-90% off on winter clothing RIGHT NOW on a variety of online store. JC Penney has a bunch of infant and toddler Christmas dresses and suits for $10 each-a sweet deal-as well as adult and children winter clothing.

Keep your eye out for coupons, discounts and rebates-Every little bit helps.

Make your own gifts- Gifts for teachers, Sunday School teachers, the mailman, etc can really add up. Why not make your own? Can you sew, knit, create jewelry, make candles? Why not create gifts now and have gifts checked off your list in July? Now that is SMART and thrifty.

Consider purchasing used items-Some people may squirm at this, but I think its smart. For my son's first Christmas we really wanted to get him a particular baby toy. I found the exact item on Craigslist for $10, regular price is $60. After a thorough cleaning, it looked brand new and he was none the wiser.

Cut out unnecessary items- Its nice to purchase a new wreath or ornament from time to time..but do you really need it? Fancy wrapping paper and bows just get tossed in the trash. Expensive floral centerpieces for the table are also disposable. Have a huge Christmas card list? Cut it down to only those you don't see on a regular basis.

Reuse what you already have- Take a few minutes and evaluate what you already have leftover from last year. If you have cards left over from last year-use them. No one will remember. Use decor items around your home in new and creative ways to create centerpieces.

Rethink the celebration of Christmas entirely- Instead of doing a traditional gift Christmas, why not consider a Jesus Birthday celebration instead? Get a birthday cake, exchange small gifts, play games and celebrate the birth of Christ.

Saving Series: Celebrating Christmas on budget Tip #1 PLAN

Saving Series: Celebrating Christmas on budget Tip #1 PLAN

Plan. Plan. Plan some more!

A stress free and budget friendly holiday all comes down to planning in advance. As Dave Ramsey says, Christmas is not an emergency – it falls on December 25 every year, so you know it’s coming.

The #1 tool to plan your holiday is to create a budget. Just like a monthly expense budget, create a holiday budget that covers ALL of your extra holiday expenses. Take 10 mins, sit down and create one today. Tuck it away in a safe place where you can refer to it over the next 6 months.

Below are a few examples of what you may want to include in your budget. I’m not going to harp on how much money you should be spending on what – every family is different. But this is thrifty blog, after all, so I’m obviously going to advocate keeping the holidays simple. And since I’m a follower of Jesus Christ, my Christmas season revolves around celebrating his birth – and I want to do whatever I can to keep my family’s perspective on him.

Items to include in your budget:

1) GIFTS     Decide who you are buying for and the amount you intend to spend on each person. Already have gift ideas? Jot them down as well. Doing stockings? That adds up, so include it in the budget. Don't forget teacher, Sunday school teacher gifts. Tips for service workers, etc.

2) SUPPLIES   Estimate what wrapping and gift supplies you may need. Paper, bags, tissue paper, bows, tape, Christmas cards, stamps, etc.

3) DECORATIONS AND DECOR    Do you purchase a live tree? Need new outdoor lights, etc? Centerpieces for your table?

4) FOOD   Estimate the cost for additional food(not regular groceries), baking, Christmas dinner, entertaining, etc.

5) TRAVEL Will you be leaving town? Hotel, gas, restaurants, etc..that all adds up quickly.

6) EVENTS  Hosting a party? Have a company party to attend? Christmas concert? Do your children need "Christmas outfits"

7) CONTRIBUTIONS   Making an end of year charitable donation?

Saving Series: Celebrating Christmas on a budget

While it is hot in West Michigan, the calendar indicates that Christmas is a little over 6 months away. Why not start planning NOW for a simple Christmas this year?

During our first year of marriage, I just started a new full time job around Thanksgiving. Life during November and December was a blur. Learning a new job and working full time with odd hours left little time for other responsibilities. Add in Christmas and all the parties, events, etc and it was overwhelming. That Christmas was also stressful on our finances as we did not prepare. Shopping very last minute left me with no selection and higher prices. We didn't have a budget(gasp!) and did not properly prepare for the financial aspect of the holidays. After the holidays, I vowed that I never wanted to "do Christmas" like that again. Over the past 5 years, I've learned several tricks and tips to make the holidays less stressful and in budget.

Join me this week for a saving series geared toward reducing your expenses, increasing your Christmas income, planning and preparation for the Holiday season.
