Entertaining
>> Expecting a house full of company this year? Shopping online can save you some headaches and some cash. Many grocery store chains, including Safeway here in California offer online shopping and delivery. There is a surcharge on delivery. But if you use a "club card" you will be able to save just as much as you do in the store - not to mention your precious time. Make your list of staples: extra toilet paper, soap, shampoo, laundry detergent and buy in bulk. Check out digital supermarket coupon clipping sites, including Coupons.com to find deals on staples.

Spreading Holiday Cheer
>> Consider sending electronic holiday cards and invitations. Not only will you save money, you'll save thousands of trees. As a timesaver, consider putting together a digital scrapbook. You can print them as gifts, too at How Fast They Grow.
