Barry Bigelow discusses how you can best spend your money this Green Monday

Green Monday is the last day that you can online shop and really expect for that gift to get there before Christmas

Tip 1: Stick with your spending plan. If you have figured out what you need to buy so far and you’ve already purchased most of that, don’t use Green Monday as an excuse to be able to go out and splurge.

Tip 2: Use Green Monday as a day to research to see if you can get a better deal on what you’ve already purchased.

Tip 3: Watch out for Scams. It’s a heavy traffic day for online shoppers. Watch out for pop up ads and scams. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Tip 4: Look out for your credit cards. Stay in your budget and don’t put money on credit cards that you don’t have or can’t pay back right away so that you don’t pay interest on gifts that you thought that you got a deal on.
