Bring a Reusable Bag.
I pretty much always have a reusable bad with me when I go shopping to either help me tote mymanyreturns or save some plastic. During the Christmas season, when you’re buying a lot, bringing a bag like this is especially helpful because it allows you to carry everything you’ve bought without toting around a ton of bags. You can even stick your purse in there as well.
Below are some cute ones I’ve found.
Ditch the Jacket.
I literally have never been in a mall and wished I had a jacket on. I’m usually commenting on how each store gets hotter and hotter the more I shop. Ditching the jacket will only give you a cold walk into the mall. And, on your way out, you’ll be thanking the Lord for the chilly weather.
Have A Game Plan.
Know the stores you have to hit and where they’re located. This will help you for where you need to park and be more efficient with your time (and your steps!).
Make A List
Even if you don’t know where to find the things you’re looking for, it’s super helpful to at least know what you’re looking for. You can stick to it strictly or you can branch off. But, most importantly, this will also help you make sure you don’t forget anyone on Christmas.
