Manila, Philippines — It’s that time of the year again where everyone’s preparing for their reunions, dressing up for Christmas parties, and for some who did an advance Christmas shopping – it’s all about wrapping the gifts.
However, for those who still haven’t yet done any shopping yet, here are some tips and tricks that would help you save time and effort. Read up, guys!
List. List. List.
Before going to the mall, always make sure you create a list of whom you want to give presents to. In this way, you get to budget your money, save lots of energy from walking around, and forget no one. Also, keep in mind to set a spending limit, so you don’t cry upon seeing what’s left in your wallet afterwards.
Bring Your Own Shopping Bag
By doing this, not only do you save money from buying shopping bags at the mall, you also reduce the use of plastic bags that just ends up in drainage and in the streets. Plus – having less shopping bags at your home means bigger space and lesser clutter.
Look on Discounted Items
Check out some social media accounts of some online shops and shops at the mall whose currently running some last-minute Christmas sale. The more you save your money, the more gifts you give on your this special season.
