As the holiday season draws nearer (and as bonuses start coming in), shopping seems to be one of the most exciting things to do. Well, who doesn't want to shop? While buying the things which we have been looking forward to own before the year ends makes us giddy, we can never deny the fact that picking the right gifts for our special someone or those we love is actually more fun and exciting, right?

List down the things you plan on buying before you run your errands and make sure you only buy the things that are on that list!

Setting a realistic budget keeps you from spending your hard earned money on things you can't afford and most importantly, stuff you don't actually want.

Prep as much as you can Think about what you’re going to cook well in advance. I like buying all my ingredients a day before the dinner so that I can concentrate on cooking the day of (it’s what I did for this dinner). Buying everything the day before also ensures perishable items such as seafood or ripe produce will still be fresh the next day. Streamline your shopping My mom is the queen of comparison shopping and goes to two or three different supermarkets for produce, meat and seafood. She’s also retired and has the time to do so. I don’t. So sometimes I’ll just eat the cost and spend a bit more on cheese if all my ingredients are at that shop, rather than zip across town to a specialty store. When on a budget, it’s not just about saving money, it’s also about … [Read more...] about How to throw a dinner party: Efficient shopping tips
