Frugal Holiday Tip Contest!

Perfect contest with the perfect prize!
Hop on over to Frugal Upstate and check out the Frugal Holiday Tip Contest!

Nickelodeon and Walmart have teamed up to sponsoring a contest that will not only collect together some of the BEST holiday money saving tips on the web, they are also giving one lucky Frugal Upstate reader a $500 Walmart gift card!

To enter please click on the link embedded in the contest name above and be sure you read the rules!!

Here's my tip to save money during the holidays:

I love gift baskets, they are fun and flexible! I pick up samples and free items year round and make different baskets out of them. You can get these by signing up for newsletters, ordering them through the manufactures' websites, or in stores. I keep a "gift box' going year round with a list of items in it and who it may be good for.

If you keep a small notebook handy (in your purse or car) and you hear a loved one mention something they like or would like to have, write it down. When you run across it on sale, pick it up!

Now, head over to Frugal Upstate and join in the fun!
