Santas are making their way into malls and Black Friday is about a week away, meaning you need to set your holiday budget now.
First, set a spending limit. You can base it on what you spent last season. Then, as you make purchases, write down each one you make. It will help you stay on track and commit to your spending limit.
Make sure you are following stores on Twitter and Facebook. Many stores offer special web-only sales and discount codes to reward their loyal followers.
Target, Macys and thousands of others stores are taking part in 'Free Shipping Day' on Dec. 17. Head to FreeShipping.org to see what stores are offering the deal.
