Tip 86: Gift List Phone Apps

There are 86 days until Black Friday 2011 and we’re counting them down with money saving and holiday shopping tips.

Today’s Tip:

There’s an app for that…

Yesterday we talked about starting to make a list of the people you’ll be buying for and how much you’re budgeting for gifts.

In years past I lugged around a notebook in my purse with a list of the people I was buying for, ideas for gifts, and a total of what I’d spent on each person, manually entered and tallied.

Thankfully, there are apps to make tracking your purchases, budgeting, and gift ideas easier this year. I’ve downloaded the Christmas Gift Planner app to my Droid. iPhone users check out this Gift Plan app.

Five tips down, 85 to go. :)

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