With Christmas racing toward us and so much to do, it is always tempting to leave the Christmas shopping until the very last minute. With that frenzied panic, usually your budget is sacrificed due to time pressures. Who needs that stress?
Making a list is key to getting organised
Remember to list all the people you need to buy for and the amount you will spend and some items that might be suitable. Need inspiration? Read on.
Managing your Christmas budget can be a breeze when you phase your spend using the brilliance of Afterpay. Let me explain further.
Afterpay breaks your purchase into four simple payments each made fortnightly so you can Buy Now, Take the goodies Home Now, and Pay Later taking the pressure off. This is such a great way to maintain your responsible spending habits and still meet your Christmas deadlines.
To make it even easier, Afterpay has an app for your smart device. Download, register and shop – Presto!
Don’t leave it until the last minute to shop
I recently hit some of my favourite shops and scored some wonderful goodies for my Friends – do check out my video.
Research and inspiration
If you are having trouble finding the right present for your loved ones, get some inspiration before you hit the stores. I love cruising Instagram as those inspirational images help me fast track my gift shopping. https://www.instagram.com/afterpay.it/
Register for all of your favourite stores by going to their social media and webpages and signing up for their newsletters. They will send sale information and also feature gorgeous goodies for the holiday season. Not only will you bag a bargain but you will get some fabulous inspiration too.
You need not worry about where to shop as Afterpay has an ever growing list of all of your favourite retailers, and is available in-store and online. Whether your preference is to shop in-store or online (perhaps a little of both). Check out the video, I shopped at Myer and Sephora to name just a few.

It’s the Thought not the Noughts!
You do not need to spend a lot of money to show your friends and family you love them. Consider buying several smaller gifts and popping them into a hamper.
Perhaps on your shopping you might just find a little guilty pleasure for yourself. Whether you are updating your skincare range or a New Year’s party dress, managing your spend over four payments is genius. Did I mention there is no interest?
Keep the stress to a minimum and have a very fun filled and Savvy Christmas and Happy Holiday season.
