#SELOVES: Holiday Shopping without the Headaches
The holidays are generally a manic time of year – I’m pretty sure that’s the understatement of the century. In between work, friends and family get-togethers, your time may be limited. When it comes to holiday shopping, there are a few things to keep in mind to minimize headaches and stress levels. We’re going to share a few of our favourite tips and tricks to staying sane and avoiding the holiday rush.
Do your Research
A few minutes can save you a lot of time. Instead of blindly walking into a store and going from rack to rack and aisle to aisle, have a plan and stick to it. If you need inspiration go online, making a list will also help you stay on track.
Maximize your Lunch Break
We all love our lunch breaks but why not spend it running an errand or two. If you want to avoid the evening and weekend rush, just make a quick pit stop before returning desk-side. You can be in and out in a matter of minutes, while also getting a coffee and maybe even a breath of fresh air.
If you want to avoid people all together, then technology is your best friend. Almost everything is available online these days and since I’ve discovered PayPal’s updated app, I’ve been shopping easily on-the-go. From the couch to the streetcar, you can shop quickly with the click of your fingers or the touch of your thumbs, avoiding all of the line-ups and crowds.
No matter where your holidays take you, don’t let the holiday rush get you down. Whether you plan on shopping online or off, get one step ahead of the game to ensure a stress free holiday season!
