Move the holiday!

Although tradition says otherwise, holidays don't have to be celebrated on their designated dates. Moving the holiday to a different date on the calendar can help you save money.

"Move your family's Christmas celebration from Dec. 25 and closer to Jan. 1," says Carrie Rocha, publisher of the Pocket Your Dollars website.

"When you buy presents, this is one of the best ways to take advantage of all the after-Christmas sales. It saves you a bundle, especially if you buy lots of toys for nieces and nephews or have big lists of people to give to," Rocha says.
