3 Ways to Save this Christmas

Christmas is really near. I have already put up my Christmas tree last week.  I picked white decors for the tree.

I had all-white decors on tree because the slipcovers in my living room are all red.

I did not buy those decors. I borrowed from my neighbor, my aunt! We swapped some Christmas decors.  You really do not have to buy new decors. You can borrow! I am lucky the my aunts had pretty ornaments.

I still have not gone full force with the Christmas spirit as I have not done any Christmas shopping for my godchildren.  I am thinking about getting creative with my gift wrapping. I can do small boxes using origami. I bought these origami papers from a Japanese store. You may use old magazine pages as origami paper.

If you have small items as gifts, you can create origami boxes like this.

If you have not bought anything (like me), try buying online.  You can avoid crowded malls and the inconvenience of traffic.

Personally, I like giving books as gifts for another person and as a gift for myself.

I just came from a seminar that deals with numbers. I have math degree and  I have not used it much other than simple arithmetic.  The seminar gave insights on analyzing tables and learning how to use them to understand certain phenomena. I checked my college textbooks and it seemed that I no longer have them.

Good thing there is Slugbooks. It is a portal by which you can search for textbooks and the search results would give you the list of sellers where you can buy the book.  With that, you can compare textbooks at slugbooks.com  and pick the amount where it can give you value for money.

How about you? What are your tips to save money this Christmas?
