Holiday Shopping Tips: Making the Most of Gift-Giving

The holiday season is right around the corner, which means now is the perfect time for last-minute holiday shopping. In addition to getting a Chevy, which is guaranteed to have plenty of space for all those presents, there are some important holiday shopping tips to keep in mind. If you’re looking to give the best gifts without breaking the bank, read on.

It sounds obvious, but Real Simple suggests making a list to help get you started. Make columns or rows of everyone you know, and start with the easy gifts. In addition to names and possible gifts, be sure to create a maximum spending column to help you manage your budget. If you have a large family, costs can definitely add up—a list is a great way to keep you out of the red.

Next, be sure to get an early start. In addition to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, there are some great deals out there; however, waiting until the last minute will cost you big time. Typically, gifts actually tend to be cheaper before December, so getting things out of the way early could save you some serious dough.

Finally, do some online research. Shopping around can be fun, but it’s hard to find the best deals by foot nowadays. Hop on the internet and browse deals. Compare store websites, but also be sure to check out Consumer Reports for the latest information. If you’re tech-savvy, consider downloading a shopping app to help you hunt down deals. Every penny counts.

Making a list, starting early, and doing research are the best ways to start the holiday shopping season. You’ll be glad you followed these tips when you save money this year.

A Very Chevy Christmas

At dawn you arise,

your eyes in a glaze.

Awake, but befuddled

in your morning haze.

Yet, soon you remember that this morning special

not one to be missed.

This morning is Christmas,

let’s see if you got the gifts on your list.

A shirt, a tie, and some new blowing shoes.

These are splendid gifts,

But they’re no big “to-do”

Some power tools and dvds

you’re appreciative, yes

these are things that you need.

But you have the one thing on your list that you most desire

you have yet to notice

and begin to perspire

“I left tons of clues, I know they’re aware”

“I love watching movies,”

“And the shoes…couldn’t have picked a better pair”

“But deep down I thought, hoped that something else would be there.”

And as you begin to clean all the boxes and papers

Your wife shout, “There’s one more,

but try to stay quite so you don’t wake our neighbor”

You look perplexed as she approaches

You’re reminded of sleigh bells

with the jingle of her broaches.

She leads you outside and what do you see?

An all-new 2014 Chevy!

The Silverado 1500 to be specific

You’ve longed for it so much you kiss it like you’ve missed it.

Nevermind that it’s winter or that the wind chill is 4 below

Or that the forecast was “let it snow, let it snow”.

Too excited to feel frost

you’re new truck has made you feel like a boss.

But that feeling is short and your kiss to long

your lips become stuck and the feeling is gone.

Warm water is brought with a stifled laughter,

but once you’re free it is of no matter.

The embarrassment will be short,

and you truck will last long

Because the Chevy Silverado is built to run strong.
