With the end of the year approaching, we know how difficult things can get when it comes to your finances. There are many expenses that you will come across this month whether that’d be rent, car payments, and other bills. But we also all know what the end of the year brings… that’s right, it’s Christmas. Around this time of the year, things get extremely hectic and sometimes it gets hard to pay for everything that you want to get and everything you need to get. Regardless, the pressure is on this month, but don’t worry, we are here to show you how to relieve that pressure and go into the new year strong!
Here is how you can save money this Christmas:
1) Set a budget: Remember the real purpose of Christmas… you do not need to go out and spend a huge amount of money on gifts especially if you have a large family. Set a total budget on how much you want to spend on everyone and divide it however you want.
2) Play Secret Santa or White Elephant: These are great fun alternatives to do with your friends and family on Christmas. Everyone buys just one gift within a budget and exchanges them. Secret Santa or White Elephant will save you so much money!
3) Go in on a group gift: if you do feel like gifting something a little more on the expensive side, ask your siblings or a family member if they would want or to split the cost on one big present for someone.
There are so many other ways to save your money and stay organized during the Christmas season, but we found these to be the best. We hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and a happy new year!
