Saw this article online and really liked the idea of using clothepins to label electronic cables so you know what's what! Can't tell you how many times I've puzzled over what cord leads to what when trying to troubleshoot a computer problem. Check article for more ideas!
the day after a holiday, stores discount their prices on holiday goods usually be 30%, and on down each day after the holiday. I get greeting cards, wrapping paper, trinkets for party bags, table settings, picture frames, gifts, etc. all on clearance. I can use them for the next season, but some things you can use all year round, like table settings and cupcake papers... then next season you save time AND money. Target, grocery stores, even Victoria's Secret!
I often find gift sets of perfume or body lotion, baking mixes, etc. that I user all year round for people at work or younger cousins, etc. you can repackage them in cute baskets to make them non- holiday themed. Often times I get these for $2-4, when I normally would have paid $15.
I have a credit card that gives points for dollars spent. You redeem your points for gift cards. I pay the entire bill every month (no interest for me!) At Christmas, or other gift giving holidays I use my points towards gift cards. Free presents!
