With only 12 shopping days left
until Christmas, students may
find it difficult to buy interesting
gifts within their budgets.
"Start shopping now," says
Kathy Prochaska-Cue, extension
family economics and manage
ment specialist at UNL. "But dont
shop out of sheer frustration."
Prochaska-Cue said Christmas
shoppers should make out list
of everyone that will receive a gilt
from them, and then put a "ceil
ing limit" on the amount for each
gift. "And stick to it " she said.
Promotional techniques can
have a psychological influence on
people that makes them spend
more than they should, she said.
Coupons, deferred payment plans,
and seasonal sales pitches should
be recognized, she said.
"YouVe got to remember that
promotional devices, no matter
how good they sound, are designed
to make U3 buy more," she said.
The best gift is something that
the person would want but would
not buy themselves, Prochaska
