Does the holiday season bring you more stress than cheer?  Here are 4 tips on shopping for your family and friends this year designed to keep you year merry and bright:

Shop Off-Peak Hours

Most stores aren't very busy in the early morning or late at night.  Shop at slow times and you can forego the crowds and long lines.

Take a List That Includes Your Budget

Start your holiday list early in the season and take your checklist with you when you go shopping.  Your list should include a maximum amount you want to spend for that gift or person.

Buy Extra Gifts

Find some "generic" items on sale that can be for a man or woman and purchase a couple extras in case someone unexpectedly gives you a gift.

Reward Yourself

Treat yourself to a special lunch, or buy a small token for a job well done.  You deserve it.
