How to Get Christmas Shopping Done in Less Time

Giving and exchanging gifts is something we all look forward to at Christmas, but getting the shopping done is more stressful than fun. The month of December can be hectic with activities and family visits, so that’s why we all prefer to get Christmas shopping done in as little time as possible. 

We all know that Christmas shopping can quickly become stressful, but there’s no need for it to be a stressor. At Used Mobiles 4U, we have put together some tips to help you get your shopping done in less time.

Start Christmas Shopping Early

It might be the most obvious answer, but starting your Christmas shopping early is the best way to save time on shopping overall. Ideally, on or before Black Friday is an excellent time to start because you have a month or more to sort everything out without having to fight in the shops. This is especially the case because a lot of retailers, both online and in-store, start their offers for Christmas well before December. Plus, if the items you desperately want to buy sell out, you have a chance to find them somewhere else and search for other ideas if necessary.

Make a List of Every Gift You Need to Buy

We all do it for a weekly food shop, but making a list of things we need is essential. Ideally, it’s the best way not to forget to buy a gift or plan what you are going to buy for each friend or family member. This is also another way brilliant way to get shopping done in a minimal amount of time; the list will help you organise your thoughts as well as the gifts you give. If you have any extras, you can save them for birthdays or even for next year; just make a note of what you have given each person every year to avoid giving the same gift over and over.

Work out what you need to buy where.

The list of gifts will help you establish where you need to shop for certain gifts and whether you need to shop online or physically in-store. You can make a list of the shopping you can do in the shops and what you need from each shop, potentially you can get that done in one day. You can also make a list of those online retailers and if we’re honest, shopping online allows you to save on fuel and parking charges. Plus, you can keep track of your list of gifts and maybe even buy a few gifts from the same shop.

The Christmas Season can be difficult when managing time and shopping for those important gifts. Starting early, making a list and working out which shops you need to visit will help you to enjoy the shopping season and be less stressed throughout December. With the tips from our experts at Used Mobiles 4U, you can get your Christmas shopping done in less time.

Very pleased with my purchase

Purchased a phone from these guys a few years ago and was completely satisfied then so when it came to my latest requirement I thought I would return. The phone I wanted was out of stock for a few months but I was in no rush so I waited until one became available. I received it a few days ago and am completely happy with it. The condition is exactly as described, in fact it’s better than that in my opinion. Well done chaps, keep up the good work, I will certainly recommend you if someone should ask.

Decent price delivered on time BUT when the iphone microphone was erratic I contacted Used Mobiles 4 U to arrange a replacement or refund. This is when they showed their excellence. Arranged return for MY convenience and sent through a postage QR for my ease. A real pleasure doing business with them – and I’m likely to again. Oh, and by the way, the new (used) phone works great…
