Stretch Your Budget This Holiday Season With Discounted Goods at Groupon

**This is a sponsored post. All opinions expressed in this blog post are 100% mine.

I have made my Christmas list a bit early this year because I would like to really see how far I can stretch my holiday budget this time. Last year’s budget went over because my husband and I got hooked with the Black Friday deals. Next thing we know it, we were buying so much for gifts for families and friends.

I told myself that we will not make the same mistake again. Money is a bit tight this year but it doesn’t mean we cannot allocate a portion for gifts for families.  After all that we have been through the early part of 2016, I feel it is right to celebrate (albeit not as fancy as our previous holiday celebrations) to honor my late mum’s fond memories of Christmas. She loved the holidays. She loved giving gifts. She loved entertaining guests and decorating the house with festive things.  And I will certainly keep that tradition in the family.

I am glad that I managed to save enough to use to buy gifts this Christmas so I need not panic on that. I know that I can find plenty of discounted stuff from Groupon to stretch the budget further.  Aside from the gifts, we already bought Christmas decorations to spruce up the place.


Last week, I bought my first Lemax Christmas Village. We also have other decorations that need to be displayed. However, I don’t want the batteries to eat so much from the budget allocated for the gifts. So I found a really good deal from Groupon Goods to buy the batteries in bulk or even get those rechargeable ones so I don’t keep on replacing the other batteries for the decorations.

I will be scouring Groupon for more great finds. Groupon has plenty to offer, from fashion, to toys, to shoes, to electronics, to household items, to travel, and even services! I don’t have to go anywhere to get the best deals because Groupon has them, and all these at the comfort at my home.

You will certainly find many items you may consider as gifts. You don’t have to break your head thinking too much of what to give because of the many selections in Groupon. Just take your pick, click on the product, and pay! Saves you gas because the goods will be delivered to you (check their shipping policies). It’s convenient and no worries on parking woes! Groupon is your go-to online shopping site for your many needs!

How about you? Have you made your Christmas gift list? Have you managed to set aside a budget for the coming holidays?

How To Save On Back To School Necessities

It’s official! Summer vacation is over soon for most kids and it’s back to school time once again!

I also get the jitter before the school opens every year. That means, parents will have to start tightening their budgets, check required stuff for the kids to use in their new school year, check how much the next tuition will be, what needs to be bought for the kids this time around.

Regardless of  what every parents with schooling kids have to go through for the much anticipated school opening day, we, as a mum of a college kid, will have to prepare ourselves for what they will need for the coming school opening. It doesn’t mean that everything will have to be brand new. There are many ways to save on the splurges by recycling, repairing, cleaning and repurposing some existing school items that our kids already have. Here are some saving tips I have devised, and have done for my daughter when she was studying here in Dubai.


Re-stitch blank pages of notebooks into new ones

I used to do this when my daughter was in younger years. I would gather all her notebooks from the previous term and carefully remove the blank pages. I double check first if the ones she would need for the next term would be the same lined notes and when confirmed, I make around 2-3 new notebooks out of the old one.

You can do the same too! It will save you some money that you can use for buying new pens.


Sell old textbooks

After each school year, I collect all my daughter’s previous textbooks and remove name labels from them. I clean the outer cover and re-sell them to others. Most of the time, I get to sell all her textbooks that were usable and I use the sales proceeds to buy for her next term’s books.


Clean and repair shoes and bags

I try not be very stingy but school fees here in Dubai is not a joke. A grade schooler’s one school term’s tuition fee is almost like paying a college degree back home and that is without exaggeration. So, I try to save by repairing her shoes by changing the soles and heels. They look good as new except for very few scratches on the leather outer layer.

For her bag, she used backpacks most of the time so I would always buy backpacks made of canvas so I could wash it. I would check for the handles for any loose stitchings and reinforce them again by restitching to make them sturdier. Her GAP backpack lasted for several years until I begged her to stop using because of the fraying stitches. We saved a lot for not buying too many backpacks for her over the course of her schooling here in Dubai.


Avail of back-to-school offers

Numerous establishments offer back-to-school promotions and you can save big time if you need to buy new stuff for your kids. If you have more than one kid going to school, then it will be a good deal to just purchase by the bulk as long as the items are going to be used by your kids regardless of their level in school. Just make sure that you secure the requirements’ list from the school before you go loco with bulk-buying of school supplies. You don’t want to end up with so many school things your other kids won’t even be able to use.
