Lynnette Joselly: Money Saving Holiday Shopping Guide with Dollar General

Money Saving Holiday Shopping Guide with Dollar General

This is a sponsored post in collaboration with Dollar General.


The holiday season is one of giving, which often means it is also the season of spending. However the Holiday shopping season doesn't have to be a stressful time. I have put together a list for money-saving advice to help get you through the holidays without breaking your wallet when shopping at Dollar General.

Set your budget & determine whose on the “Nice List”

The first step in organizing your holiday shopping is to set an overall budget for holiday gifts. Then, make a list of each person that you plan to buy a gift for this holiday: family, friends, partners, co-workers, service providers, pets, etc. Lastly, determine how much of the overall budget you’ll distribute to each recipient on your gifting list. If you’re list is fairly long you might want to look into Secret Santa gift exchanges in which members of a group or community are randomly assigned a person to whom they give a gift. That way you only have to buy one gift.


Create a list for your holiday shopping.

If you are like me then shopping in a store during the holidays season can be a bit overwhelming. Which is why I recommend you create a shopping list for each recipient on your gifting list. This will have you feeling more organized when you shop with a plan. With the Dollar General app you can create your shopping list on your smart phone for convenience and check off as you go while you are shopping in the store. You will be able to see exactly how much each item is and what the total would be allowing you to stick within budget. Doing this will help you save not only on money but also your precious time.
