While the economy starts to slowly climb out of the recession, many consumers are heading into the holiday shopping season more budget minded than ever. Arming yourself with pens, pads of paper, and calculators has worked okay in the past for keeping track of your Christmas shopping list and budgets, however now there’s a convenient and space saving way to do it on your iPhone and iPod Touch!

Each year consumers reach post holiday shopping depression come January when the credit card statements come rolling in. It starts so innocently, $10 here, $15 there but just like everything else, it adds up quickly. How can you prevent this from happending? Well, you can take the way of the Grinch, and just say BAH HUMBUG to the holidays, or you can buy everything you need and stay right on budget with the Christmas Gifts List app. “I’ll be out early on Black Friday” said Shannon Kiehn, a mother of two and state worker in Sacramento, California. “The tight economy means that sales are that much more important. I’ve got a set amount of money I need to stretch into gifts for quote a few people.”
The Christmas Gifts List app allows consumers to input the wish lists for everyone on their holiday shopping list, (so that you can remember what all the children, nieces & nephews want) avoiding another painful trip to the mall!
