Many families spend time preparing for Thanksgiving and the holidays by planning meals, decorations and guest lists — but how many have strategies when it comes to shopping for holiday gifts? We’re guessing not many. That’s why our staff in the American House Memory Care Unit partnered with notable blogger Melissa Buckles of The Bargain Shopper Mom to give our residents, families and friends a chance to learn her savvy secrets in a special holiday savings workshop.

With Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday coming one after the other, the Thanksgiving weekend certainly brings with it plenty of opportunities to go out and get that holiday shopping done. But navigating the sales, determining what deals are the best ones and saving as much money as possible can be daunting on these major – and busy – days of the year.
Shoppers learned all kinds of money-saving tips at the workshop, which was designed to help everyone navigate the Black Friday sales and get the most bang for the buck. Melissa offered strategies to develop a plan for in-store shopping and for making the most of sales online, in addition to providing other holiday shopping tips.Holding the workshop at American House Elmwood was a unique opportunity for residents to share in some of the holiday shopping tips and fun with family. Kathy Porman and the rest of the Elmwood staff explained how integral a rich activities program was to the success of her community.
