  1. Thanks for all of the great tips. I’m really looking to save money this year. It’s been an expensive one already.

    I do find Christmas a very expensive time of year I must say. I have 10 grandchildren and 4 others here that I buy for and boy does it add up. I do have a cash back credit card which does help a little and I use a money back website if buying on line. It’s still a ton of money though.

  3. Carole D says:

    Thank you for the great tips! I love saving money!

    I’m really good at bargain shopping but this year I’ve been stumped on what to get my 77 year old mother
