It may be the most wonderful time of the year, but let's face it; holiday shopping and preparations are stressful. The hustle and bustle of stores during the Christmas season can easily get us frazzled, so thank goodness there's a few apps to help us maintain a level of clarity when we need it most!

These apps will not only help you organize your gift giving this year, but one can even help you find your car in the crazy store parking lots!

  • Giftster - This app lets you create a wishlist, which you then share with your friends and family who have done the same. It even allows you to share favorite colors and sizes for particular items. Get the app here.
  • Christmas Gift List - This app allows uses to not only create shopping lists, but also keep track of who they've bought for, what the bought, and how much they have spent. Great way to make sure you've spent the same amount on each child you buy for. Download the app for iPhones here or Android devices here.
  • - This website has a handy app that checks for any coupon codes to make sure you are getting the most savings possible. It even includes restaurant discounts for when all that shopping works up a mean appetite. Get the app here.
  • Find My Car App - After parking your car, open this app and "pin" your location. When you're ready to find your car, open the app again to see your car's location. It will even give you walking directions directly to your car if you're really lost. Download it here on iTunes, or here on Google Play.


Happy Shopping, and I hope these apps help keep your holiday stress to a minimum!
