6 Tips of Smart Christmas Shopping
Christmas soon arrived and to please your loved ones, you are planning to buy variety of gifts for them. But in the midst of economic crisis, you should be smarter to shop. Today, very hard to earn money, in fact a lot of people are laid of from their work. So, you have to be wise with your money and don’t let the money you spend beyond the budget. There are a few tricks to do smart Christmas shopping, namely:

1. Start earlier – Do it from now
The reason is the store is not too crowded and the amount of goods still lot, so you can be more free to choose the gifts you want to buy then you can choose good quality goods with reasonable price.
2. Conduct research
Find ideas about the kind of gift that will be given to the people you care about by browsing to the online store, reading magazines, watching TV, and chatting with friends. So you will get idea bout the right stuff to give.
3. Gift List
Create a gift list before shopping. Write the name of the person you want to give a gift, type of gift, and the store where the gift is sold.
4. Do not over-budget
Don’t let the amount of money you spend beyond the budget that have been made. Of course you don’t want to start 2010 with a lot of debt right?
5. Don’t forget to compare
Check the online store in advance about the specification and price of goods you want to buy, and then compare it with the offline store. Considering the discounts offered too. If the price of goods at the online store can be much cheaper, then you don’t have to bother to go to the shopping center.
6. Special wrapping
If the stores offer special free wrapping service, I recommend to use this service, because it can save a little money to wrap the gifts.
