3 Ways to Be Thrifty this Holiday Season (Cash Giveaway!)

Despite not yet being in the holiday spirit, I find myself anxiously counting down the days until Christmas. (We’re at 41 if you were wondering.) With all my Christmas shopping still to do, I can tell this is going to be a last minute kind of holiday. But, that doesn’t mean I can’t still be a thrifty shopper. Here are three ways to stretch your dollar this holiday season…

Here are 3 ways to be thrifty this holiday season, including an awesome PayPal cash giveaway!

3 Ways to Be Thrifty this Holiday Season

1. Shop through Ebates

I try to do all my online shopping through Ebates. From hotels to flowers to computers to clothes, Ebates lets you earn cash back from thousands of stores. It’s almost like getting paid to shop. Just create an account and select a retailer to shop. It’s that easy.

2. Buy gently used

The holiday season ushers in many events that you won’t attend again until next year, so why blow your budget on something you are only going to wear once? Stores like ThredUp, Poshmark, and Tradesy offer a wide selection of previously owned new and gently used clothing and accessories at a great discount. When you score a cute dress at a sweet price, you don’t need to fret if you don’t wear it again until next Christmas.

3. Enter the Holidaze Cash Giveaway

Wouldn’t $200 in PayPal Cash make the holidays so much easier? I think that’s a big yes! I’m partnering with some fabulous bloggers to give one lucky reader an awesome prize.
