Give gifts to everyone on your list without spending more than you want to. Try these 9 shopping strategies. ―By Betsy Wiesendanger
Group your gifts
Decide on your total shopping budget for the season. Group people by category: family, friends, neighbors, coworkers and others. Decide on a realistic budget for each category. Add up and check the total. Then revise it if you need to. If you can't afford to buy something for everyone―your coworkers for example―plan to make the gifts for one group instead.
