With just 10 shopping days until Christmas, the last minute rush for gifts is on - but there's no need to break the bank.

RetailMeNot's shopping and trends expert, Sara Skirboll, showed Inside Edition viewer Nicola how to save time and money as they hit the shops.

"I waited 'til the last minute," Nicola told her.

"Don't worry, you're not alone," Skirboll told her. "A third of people still have half of their shopping to do."

She explained that the first thing to do is to write out a list so you know who you're shopping for. She suggested making a budget and sticking to it.

Skirboll also told her about the RetailMeNot shopping app, which uses GPS technology to find deals in your area.

With more than 500,000 offers for more than 50,000 retailers, the app helps people save an average of $28 per transaction during the holidays, according to RetailMeNot.

Skirboll also reminded Nicola to mark her calendar for Free Shipping Day 2016, which falls on Friday, December 16.
