Tomorrow is my sister’s 17th birthday and I can’t imagine that time is really running too fast. It is actually faster than what I expect it would be and it seems like it was just yesterday when i was playing with my little sister and enjoying our time together and now, she is all grown up and act almost like a lady. One year from now, she is officially 18 and she will celebrate her Debut party ( a traditional celebration her in my country that is done whenever a girl reaches 18 years of age). After this celebration, me and my family will be very busy preparing for the upcoming holidays.
It is very interesting to note that here in my country, the celebration of Christmas will start whenever the so-called Ber months arrive (September – December). It will start off by decorating their houses outside, having a nicely decorated Christmas trees and more. You can even start hearing some Christmas songs on different radio stations and when December arrives, you can start seeing kids and other groups of Carolers singing in front of one house to another. It is the Christmas Spirit indeed.
In my case, I used to start listing my Christmas gift list as early as November. I do this as early as possible to avoid myself from rushing things out. I am not the type of guy who will dare for a last minute shopping and I prefer to buy the gifts ahead of time to keep me away from stress. If i can’t buy them all immediately, i try to buy a few until I managed to avail them all and complete my list before the much awaited occasion arrives.
I am frugal type of guy and I wouldn’t mind going to a bazaar or a bargain store just to save money. Saving money means I can buy more gifts. But of course, I also care about the quality and that is one of the things that I always take as a priority but if there is an opportunity for me to get some discounts, I will surely grab it with no hesitations at all. I am so fond of using vouchers and discount coupons too. I used to get a great deal and it allows me to buy a good and high quality item in such a very low price. It was such a practical and frugal thing you can do and I am encouraging every one to do the same thing.
Purchasing items online using vouchers (through voucher codes in particular) is more advantageous too. You can buy those branded products in such a very convincing price. If you haven’t done online shopping yet, then you better check this link now and see how the process works and see how much you can benefit from using vouchers. Right now, i am half way done with my gift list and i will probably hit the online stores pretty soon to shop for these items. Isn’t exciting.
