Tackle You Christmast Shopping List Without Breaking The Budget



Tackle You Christmast Shopping List Without Breaking The Budget

An extra 20% discount? Pinch me, I must be dreaming. But its not a dream, it’s a real-time offer, go check out San Clemente!

Our favorite Christmas holiday season is just around the corner! Full of all the good cheer, love, family, and, of course, spending on gifts. Ideally, we would like to pour out our hearts and our wallets for our loved ones, but even the most wonderful time of the year needs a budget. Budgets and diets thus have one thing in common – they are often broken during the holidays. Even for those who are careful about saving money all year round, once the Christmas lights are on it’s easy to go a bit crazy.

According to the National Retail Foundation (NRF), during 2016 the average American has spent around $935.58 over the holidays, including on food, decorations, flowers, greeting cards, holiday snacks, and, of course, gifts. Of this amount, the average respondents to the NRF survey spent $588.90 – or about 63% of their holiday spending – on other people’s gifts. Unfortunately, like a Thanksgiving Dinner, all of this spending will leave a lot of guilt in the coming years. A survey by Offer Up reveals that 24% of Americans think vacations cost their most intense one-time stipend of the year.

One way to reduce post-holiday pressure is to cut, and not just winter cookies, but also some costs. Since gifts are the most significant expense for Americans when they’re looking for ways to reduce holiday spending, it’s reasonable to first consider reducing the gift budget to save on expenses.

Do you want to buy gifts for all your friends and family without breaking your budget? Well luckily if your in Orange County this Holiday season, go check out San Clemente! Here are five reasons why this SolCal site should be your one-stop shop for this Christmas without breaking your bank account:

For most people a 70% discount is still not enough to keep them away from Netflix holiday binge and head out to the outlets. How about an extra 20% discount? You can pinch me but I’m not dreaming, it’s a real-time offer in San Clemente.

Go check out their stores for amazing deals. The customer service department offers free savings books and special offers for over 45 stores and restaurants!
