A Young Mothers Guide for Surviving the Biggest Shopping Day of the Year- and the Rest of the Holiday Shopping

By Rachel Denning

-- It's almost the day after Thanksgiving-the biggest shopping day of the year. For millions of shoppers this means standing out in front of Target in the dark, cold morning air, fighting crowds of crazy bargain shoppers.

But that was before the "world of the Internet", where according to CNN "Shopping required braving the elements and the crowds."

Survive (and I daresay enjoy) this holiday shopping season with these money and stress saving tips now available through the "world of the Internet".

1.Do your holiday shopping online- Avoid the headaches and hassles of driving from store to store, fighting crowds and wrestling kids. Shopping at all your favorite stores is now available online. Do you holiday shopping from the comfort of you home computer, anytime day or night (even in your pajamas).

2.Find a one stop shopping source- Resources like provide one source for all your favorite online stores- like Gap, Old Navy, Eddie Bauer and KB Toys. Similar to a shopping mall, but with more stores and no crowds.

3.Have your gifts wrapped and sent directly to the recipient- save yourself the extra time and hassle. Click on the gift wrap link available on most store sites, enter in the recipients address for shipping and presto- your gift is done.

4.Take advantage of time saving services- stores like provide Personal Shopping Consultants. They will search 600+ stores to find you any product at the best price, saving you time to do something you enjoy more than surfing the net-like playing with your kids.

5.Use Cash Back programs to put money back in your pocket- Cash Back is the way to shop. Whether it's with a cash back card like Discover, or through a Rebate site like, or both, take advantage of getting cash back on all the money you spend this holiday season- and through the rest of the year.

6.Money Saving Coupons and Free Shipping- Shop at home, save on gas and free shipping-what could be better? Sign up for newsletters that will notify you of which stores are offering promotions.

7.Relax! And Reward Yourself- Enjoy the holiday season- have a cup of eggnog or hot cocoa. Or better yet, treat yourself to a pre or post holiday vacation. offers two free airline tickets to 25 locations like Hawaii or the Bahamas. Just you and your spouse (ahh, sounds like heaven!) How's that for a Happy Holiday!
