We have published a series of articles on how to shop smart, particularly during the holiday season, so that you do not spend more than you can afford and get unnecessarily into credit card debt. We have given tips for impulse shoppers and inspirational shoppers. Now the next group: the non-shoppers. They are the ones who say, “I know I have 5 gifts to buy. I go to one store and buy them as quickly as possible.” If you are thinking of a man you know, you are probably right. Consolidated Credit has great tips for these folks:
- Consider shopping on the Internet. The Net will allow you to shop quickly from several different merchants, which could save you money.
- Give gift certificates and everyone wins. There is no shopping involved for you, the recipient can choose their own gift and you will not overspend.
