There are several holidays in December that involve getting together with family and spending money on gifts. Many people find this time of year to be overwhelming, especially for those who are trying to get the most for their money. Here are the best things to buy in December.

Gift Cards
You may notice that retail stores emphasize gift cards in December. That makes the gift cards really easy to find. The best thing about gift cards is that it allows the recipient to choose a gift for themselves. You won’t have to worry about if something is the right size or color.

Toys and Games
If your kids aren’t picky, you can get a better price on toys if you wait to purchase them in mid-December. Stores that stocked up on a ton of toys and games will want to get rid of them before Christmas. You could see a 45% to 50% discount on something your kid will want to play with.

The middle of December is also a good time to buy toys and games to use as birthday presents in the coming year. Pick up some toys your kids, nieces, and nephews will enjoy. Get a few extra ones to have on hand if your kids get unexpectedly invited to a friend’s birthday party.

Christmas Decorations
This year, some stores began having sales on Christmas trees, Christmas decorations, and other holiday items almost immediately after they hit the shelves. Take the time to comparison shop before you make a purchase. Which store has the best sale?

Pools
Have you been planning on getting a backyard pool? The best time to buy one is in December, while the weather is cold. Very few people will think to do this, and that puts consumers at an advantage. You are in a good position to negotiate a price with the company who will build your pool.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
