Tip 79: Stash Your Presents

There are 79 days until Black Friday 2011 and we’re counting them down with money saving and holiday shopping tips.

Today’s Tip:

Stash Your Presents:

So I am not the most organized person in the world, but this year I vow to be better. When talking at the lunch table last week about our 90 day Black Friday countdown one of the girls mentioned that we should all create a present closet.

Benefits:

  • You won’t be scrambling at the last minute, racking your brain to remember where you stashed that gift. (I’m not going to tell you how many times I’ve found a gift in April that I meant to give at Christmas!)
  • You can stock up on things you find at a bargain for hostess gifts, classroom gifts, office exchanges, etc.
  • Bonus benefit: With a few extra gifts stashed away you can avoid that embarrassing situation when “so and so” bought you a gift even though you agreed you wouldn’t exchange this year! :)

78 Tips to Go! :) Please feel free to share any black Friday countdown ideas you have and any topics you’d like me to touch upon in the comments below. :)

Share this with your friends and stay tuned for tomorrow’s secret!
