3 Easy Ways to Save on Holiday Preparations

Nov 19, 2019

The holidays can be a busy time full of activities, events and parties. Between shopping for gifts and planning meals, it can be important to keep track of spending and a budget while maintaining a jolly holiday spirit. Dollar General shares a few tips on how to make the holidays more affordable this season so you can spend less time budgeting and more time celebrating the season with family and friends:

Plan Ahead

From gifts to meals, save time and money by planning ahead. By giving consideration to what you may check off on the wish list or what you plan to cook or bake for the holidays, it can make it easier to keep track of what items may have additional savings on them in circulars and through the digital coupon program. Be sure to keep in mind when certain savings and discounts begin and end, like Dollar General’s toy discount that offers 25 percent off any $75+ qualifying purchase through December 24.

Planning meals and desserts ahead of time can also help when heading to the store and prevent unnecessary spending on items that may not be needed. Save yourself from having unexpected multiples in the pantry and fridge by doing a run through of what you already have before making a shopping list.
