In the rush to purchase everything ahead of Christmas, a lot of people forget that there are also some great sales after the holidays, and some of them start the day of the holiday. I had to pull out the battery on my phone the other day to reset the device, and I realized I have a slower SD card in it, so I think I will put that on my shopping list for after Christmas. I should have a little fun money by then to make that small purchase, and it will improve the performance of my phone. A lot of families are busy these days, and don't get to see all of their family members and friends by the day of Christmas, but plan to meet up the last week of the year, or sometimes even after New Year's. If that's the case, you could take advantage of the after Christmas sales and put off purchasing a few of those gifts, and save some money.
