How to Make Holiday Shopping Fun Again with Kmart
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Or is it? Are you having trouble finding your motivation to get moving and get shopping this holiday season? I hear you. With long lists and busy schedules, it can be tough to find the FUN in holiday gift shopping. But what if shopping could be more? Much more? Are you nodding along with me yet? Check out my top 5 tips on how to make holiday shopping fun again, with a BIG reveal coming back to your favorite store! Ready to let it snow? 🙂
Trust me as a busy mom with experience. There’s nothing more satisfying than getting the holiday shopping done on your own schedule, and not because the clock is ticking. Not quite ready to hit the stores just yet? Start now by making a list. Who do you have to buy for? What ideas do you have for them? I keep a handy list right on my phone so as the ideas start popping in my head at odd times (like on a jog, or changing the baby or picking up milk at the store) I have my phone right there to jot those ideas down. Less stress, less pressure, and more focus on getting things done, I can make this holiday shopping season much more FUN for me by starting early.
Crank the Holiday Music
I’m certainly NOT the person that loves playing Christmas music year round. But there is something magical about those jingle bells during this time of year. Belting out those familiar childhood songs in the car definitely puts me in the right holiday frame of mind. Just try not to smile when you hear jingle bells playing for the 141st time!
Have a Plan
Snacks, check. Water, check. A napped baby, check! Having a game plan for your holiday shopping is essential to manage your time and your sanity! be sure to check to make sure you have all of your shopping essentials (don’t forget that list!) and can navigate your way for a successful visit.
Grab A Winning Deal
For me, grabbing an amazing deal on a Christmas present is like winning the lottery. Not only do I get a gift that I know someone will love, but my wallet thanks me as well. Just hot off the presses, one of the HOTTEST winning deals is back and just in time for the holiday season!
