  1. Nice job! I like the tip that if you have a credit card problem to leave the at home and use cash or debit only. It gets all to easy to swipe and go way over budget.

  2. Great job, Erin! Definitely some solid advice here. Agreed with Tonya re: opting for debit or cash instead of credit.

    Hey, this was great! Congrats! I like the tip of starting with less expensive items and then working up to big ticket items for the sake of perspective. So true!

      It’s so easy to drop $200 upfront and then think, wow — it’s all so cheap! I’ve been guilty of that in the past.

  4. Yay! I love the video Erin as well as the 4 money-saving tips. I actually have subscribed to many social media accounts to keep me updated on the latest discounts and deals out there and to many emails to send me some savings tips like how to make the right budget. Thanks!

      Social media is such a great way to keep up with deals. And sometimes those are deals they don’t announce elsewhere.

  5. Nice video! Welcome to the big screen! LOL 🙂

  7. Nice work! Very professional looking. It’s much harder than it looks right? How long did it take for you to complete the shoot?

      That broadcast journalism major finally paid off! It took about 2 hours to shoot. Funnily enough, a lot of the footage is from my first take. Then they needed me to do a lot of broll and move around to make it more visually fun.

  8. Awesome video! Nicely done! I like your tip to bring a snack :). That’s me for sure.

    Excellent post. Bright ideas. This will be a the best guide I found on 2014 about buying during holidays. Comparing item prices from different stores can also save you a lot of money. Job well done.
