Saving is that easy!
People keep saying Christmas is coming. Yes, I get it. All of us get it. If not by the Christmas lights covering the streets and malls much sooner than they're due, then by the fact that stores are barely able to keep in-stock due to people buying out the whole of their merchandise. It's the festival of presents, and people are sure taking this seriously. However, one thing surprises me, and it's that people actually keep wasting so much money buying things they could afford at much a cheaper rate. The appreciation you show a person by remembering them and giving them a present during Christmas is not based on how much you pay for it. Heck, usually people rip the price tags off in the first place! So why not save a little when buying tons of gifts?
It's actually pretty simple to save money on Christmas too. You just have to know where to go and what to do. Guess what, I'm about to share one of those secrets with you. You simply go to Overstock, a place I'm sure you've heard of before once or twice, and all you have to do to save is use Overstock Free Shipping. Yes, it's literally that simple. Overstock is a place that offers a massive variety of things to choose from, be it clothes, jewelry, beauty products, electronics, and even furniture! All made much more accessible because of the many overstock deals out there.
Think logically here. You've probably got quite a good list of names in your mind of people that you want to surprise during the holidays, am I right? Okay, now consider the fact that you'll be spending this and this amount of money on presents for said people. When you do the math, you probably get quite the ludicrous sum of money. How would you feel if I told you that you could shave off at least 20% off of that number? I'm not joking. How, you ask? Simply by shopping at Overstock while using one of their 20% off overstock promo codes. The kicker is that you buy one item with a coupon, then you might have enough for another one, which you can use a coupon on again! It's an endless cycle of spending less which enables you to either save or buy more, take your pick!
I mean, think about it - there's survival to be had after the holidays, and you don't want to be one of those people who end up broke because of how much they gave others. Granted giving for others is not a bad thing - on the contrary, it's one of the noblest things out there. However, we have to be realists here. You need to support yourself too, especially if you have people depending on you, like your wife, husband, kids, parents, grandparents, etc. Worrying about these things is all well and good, but why not save yourself the trouble? All you have to do is be smart with your money, and that is made easy if you shop at Overstock!

Get ready to be delighted at Prairie Lights in Grand Prairie! This is one of the most amazing displays of Christmas Lights we have seen. My boys loved it and they are teenagers!! I can only imagine how much fun this would have been when my boys were younger (oh the memories.......). Ok, I'm back from memory lane. Now I can tell you about what to expect on your trip to Prairie Lights!
Warning! This is not a quick drive in the park to see amazing Christmas light displays. Prairie Lights is a very popular holiday destination and you can expect to wait up to an hour in line just to get into the park. Since this is a drive-thru event this does make the wait a little easier. Oh, and don'ton't forget to make sure you have enough gas to wait in line!
Once you enter the park you will begin a journey to see a light display that won't disappoint! You will begin with a Charles Dickens scene and end with a drive through of the magnificient Light Tunnel. Half way through the park you will be able to stop at the Holiday Village where you can stretch your legs, use the restrooms, ride the carousel, purchase snacks and even experience the indoor holiday Laser Light show and Holiday Magic Walk-Thru Forest. Note that the Laser Light show and Holiday Magic Walk-Thru Forest are additional charges.
So how do you make this adventure fun and budget friendly? Follow these Frugal Tips......
~ Budget for admission. The entrance fee per car is $20 Mon-Thur. (non-holiday) and $30 Fri-Sat (and holidays). I have not found discount tickets available.
~ While waiting, bring along a holiday movie for the kids to watch in the vehicle so they don't get bored. This will make life easier for mom and dad with anxious kiddos!
~ When visiting the Holiday Village, bring your own snacks, drinks and goodies to help prevent you from overspending at the snack bars. Tables are provided in the tent to
~ If you do want to spend money at the snack bars, here is a sample of the pricing. Jumbo Corn Dogs $5, Funnel Cakes $5, can soda $1, large Hot Chocolate (loaded with marshmallows) $2.
~ Kids can ride the two amusement rides including the carousel for FREE!
