2. Shop All Year round

This is a tip I follow religiously. Iโ€™m always shopping for various holidays and birthdays. What you do is just always keep your eyes open. Try to keep a running list of all the gifts youโ€™ll need to buy in the coming year. That way, when you find a prospective gift, you can pick it up when itโ€™s a steal and put it back until itโ€™s time to give it.
