Shopping this holiday season can be so much less painless with a few apps that can help you save money.
I have to tell you that I simply adore holiday shopping.
Seriously, it gives me a slight high with all the great music in the background, the delicious scents that linger throughout the stores, and despite those annoying perfumes sales people, the experience is quite enjoyable.
Yet, this creates a slight problem- I end up spending more than I intended, and in the process come home cursing myself.
If you’re like me and get caught up in the shopping “high” of the holiday season, or you’re just on a budget, download a few of my favorite apps that can help you save money and eliminate the “saving while shopping” stress that can come from this time of year.
1. The Target App
On iTunes: itunes.apple.com
On Android: play.google.com
I just love Target and they have one of the best apps that can help you save money this holiday season too.
Target is full of great inexpensive goodies and sales items, but coming across so many great items can lead you to spending more money.
Plus, though electronics and pricey items like these are on sale this time of year, they still cost much more money than a simple gift of scarf and gloves.
So here’s where the Target app comes in handy!
If you're a frequent shopper at Target, this app is a must-have.
You can use it to shop online, manage registries, and store and use those Target gift cards you scored over the holidays.
Plus, you access your local store's weekly ad on your phone, to keep you in the know at all times.
I also love that you can have daily deals and twice-a-month coupons sent directly to your phone.
This means that you’ll save more money and be aware of deals so you don’t spend money a day or two before the item might have gone on sale.
Plus, it’s free and doesn’t cost you a dime!
