Stay ahead of the holidays! Your holiday haul tips

Don't make the mistake of thinking it's too early to start your holiday shopping! The season always seems to sneak up on us, and with it comes lots of last-minute stress and crowds. Instead, start giving some thought to what you'll be buying now.  

To help you stay on top of your shopping, we've gathered together five tips for putting together your holiday haul:

1. Make a list 

Make a list and check it twice. It's the worst feeling a few days before Christmas to realize that you forgot to get a gift for your co-worker, neighbor or child's teacher. Make a master list now of everyone who's been nice this year to avoid any last-minute panic. 

2. Shop the deals 

One advantage of starting your holiday shopping early is that you can check out a much larger variety of deals, sales and discounts. There are apps and browser extensions that can help you set alerts for if an item on your wishlist goes on sale - here's a helpful list of some of the most popular ones. 

3. Do your research 

It's a bummer when a new camera or pair of headphones fails to live up to its hype. Spend some time doing a little research before you buy something by reading online reviews, RealSimple magazine recommended. You can also explore in-depth, expert product reviews and descriptions at Consumerreports.org. The site has a subscription fee, but the small price may be worth it to vet big-ticket purchases. 

4. Hide your stash 

Snooping spouses and kids can spoil the surprise of a perfectly picked present, so make sure you hide your stash well. CafeMom has a list of eight great places to stow gifts out of sight, including the attic, under your bed and in your car. You can also hide gifts in clever containers, such as a hamper or suitcase. 

5. Stay energized 

Shopping can be a very energy-intensive activity, especially if you spend hours bouncing from store to store. Make sure you take care of yourself by staying hydrated and nourished - tote a refillable water bottle and protein bars in your purse! And even if you're shopping online, it's easy to get decision fatigue. The Jou Cool n' Calm herbal dietary supplement can help you stay focused and energized. 

With these tips, you can have the most efficient holiday shopping experience yet!
