How To Save Money During the Holidays


Christmas Eve is only a week away, and many other holidays are being celebrated at this time including Hanukkah and Kwanzaa. Even if you’re running behind on your shopping, that doesn’t mean you have to overspend this holiday season. Check out these tips on how to celebrate while saving money and your peace of mind:


#1: Create a budget

The first thing to do is create a budget and stick to it! Click here for our printable budget worksheet, courtesy of CKEEP.


#2: Plan ahead

Start shopping early! This gives you extra time to look around and compare prices. This extra time will also keep you from making impulse buys, or having to pay extra for express shipping.


#3: Know that just because something is on sale, doesn’t mean you can’t find a better deal elsewhere.

Even if something is on sale, that doesn’t mean it’s the best price available. You should still look around and price check for a better deal.


#4: Cut back on nonessential spending

Try to limit unnecessary expenses during the holiday season, such as last-minute trips or eating out. You can apply any extra dollars to your savings or holiday shopping budget.


#5: Get creative

Thoughtful gifts often mean more than expensive ones. Think outside the box and give friends and family something homemade or of sentimental value instead.


#6: Avoid credit cards

If you tend to go over budget, consider using a prepaid card for holiday expenses. You can buy them at most retail stores and preload them with a set amount.

Saving money needs effort and a budget to set, this pandemic I thought to start saving money so I cut out all the unnecessary expenses and some other expenses that could be reduced like less hoteling, more homemade food, installed water filter from Glacial pure filters coupons rather than paying for mineral water, less junk food, less shopping and many more.
