Shopping sales is a great way to save money, but you can also be a savvy online shopper and look for deals and discounts that will help you stretch your dollars. Many sites offer the benefit of signing up for notifications when an item you like is back in stock or is on sale, so take advantage of that when you can, and stick closely to your shopping list. It’s always a good feeling to be the giver of a gift that keeps on giving!
