Shopping around the holidays calls for holiday shopping hacks.
This post is sponsored by Fred Meyer Stores, however all opinions made are my own.
Holiday shopping is pure chaos.
Especially if the massive sales and huge crowds make you anxious. But hopefully with the hacks I lay out in this post for you, holiday shopping will be a smooth sailing ride.
I personally love holiday shopping.
It’s the only time my shopping becomes a strategy game and I think it is so fun. From lining up sales, to creating my list, it all makes for a fun holiday game.
Here is just how I make my holiday shopping less stressful and more fun.
Holiday Shopping Hacks:
Make a List
What are you shopping for? I always suggest starting off the season with your list. What decorations are you dying for? What about gifts? Or things you actually need like food? Get those lists flowing and make holiday shopping a tad easier!
Set a Budget
Above all else, you need your holiday budget. There is no reason to go into debt over the holidays trying to overdo it. Sit down with your significant other and have an honest conversation about your holiday shopping budget.
Check out the Deals
Collect all of your favorite stores weekly ads and shop through them alongside your holiday shopping list. Find where the best sales are and add those stops to your list! You might even find some gotta have it deals that you need to add to your list!
Download Store Apps for Coupons
Did you know most store apps include their weekly ads alongside their store coupons? My favorite way to shop is through store apps! I can find everything I need, check for coupons and scan the deals all at once.
Sign up for Loyalty Cards
Another holiday shopping hack? Collect points and such with store loyalty cards! Some stores even offer specific member savings, member only deals, and so much more. Another thing you can usually do all inside of a stores app!
Save the Trips!
The last of my holiday shopping hacks- save your trips! My ultimate holiday hack is to save all your shopping for one stop.
Shop for everything on your list in one place by shopping at your neighborhood Fred Meyer. My local Fred Meyer carries everything I need to make the holidays special from quality food (duh!), to amazing home decor finds, to gifts for the whole family. I even scored outfits for our upcoming family pictures during my most recent trip!
Save your sanity, time and gas by shopping at your local Fred Meyer store this holiday season.
Don’t want to deal with the crowds? Fred Meyer is still your one stop shop. You can shop their selection of quality foods, home, toys and more through their app, and either pick them up through Clicklist or have your groceries directly delivered to your door. They really have something for everyone!
Holiday shopping can be crazy, but I hope that my holiday shopping hacks make it go by easy for you.
Now let’s get to it. Make that list and shop those sales!

Fred Meyer is my happy place. I can buy a hammer, a salmon fillet and a new pair of pants all for a good price and without having to drive across town all day.
Super helpful! Definitely going to keep these tips in mind!
