5. If you're on the market for a high-quality artificial Christmas tree that nobody will believe is fake, consider purchasing one from National Tree. Its brand boasts a number of high-quality trees of various sizes, which are often featured on guides highlighting the best artificial ones money can buy. Owners gush over its beauty, how quick it is to assemble, and, most importantly, how similar it is to a real tree. "All [my] friends and family were amazed the tree was artificial, so much many didn't believe me after "feeling" the branches until [I] showed them the bottom stand hidden by presents," claims one Amazon customer. 

Right now, you can also get the slightly smaller version of what some experts call the best artificial Christmas tree for about 27% off. Amazon's selling the hinged National Tree 6.5 Foot "Feel-Real" Downswept Douglas Fir Tree featuring 650 Clear Lights for $193.73, in addition to discounting several of the brand's other trees. While its list price is $500, retailers right now are selling the same 6.5 Foot "Feel-Real" tree for $260-$360, so you're saving at minimum $64, and at maximum, $167. This deal will end on November 17, 2018, so if you miss out, you can also buy the same exact tree from Bed Bath & Beyond for $236.

  • Product: Hinged National Tree 6.5 Foot "Feel-Real" Downswept Douglas Fir Tree featuring 650 Clear Lights

7. What's the best way to save money? Easy: don't spend any! Yet while the solution's not that complicated, actually doing so is another matter. Willpower and good intentions often fail the best of us. To find out how to curb these pesky impulses, we've curated a few research-based tips from Associate Professor of Psychology at San Francisco State University, Ryan T. Howell PhD we found particularly helpful: 

1) Don't pay for things using your credit card, but WITH cash instead. According to Howell, research reveals it's easier to overspend when you buy things on credit. That's because it doesn't feel "painful" at the moment, whereas using cash does.

2) Track your spending. Howell says this reduces your chance of buying an impulsive, emotional purchase, allowing your rational mind to take greater control while shopping. If you're at a shopping center like a mall, I'd even recommend tracking your expenses down the moment you make them. Doing that has helped keep me mindful of my purchases, saving me a ton of money as a result.

3) Have a vision of a tangible savings goal in mind. Envision what it'd be like to walk through the streets of your dream travel destination, Paris, Howell suggests, and you'll be likely less to impulsively spend on that latest tech or beauty deal.
