Hey YOU – I see you rolling your eyes. Don’t give me that “oh please, let’s let Halloween pass before we even think of Christmas” face. I can see you. Well not really – but while I am not going to go all Christmas trees and snowflakes on you (YET) – what I do think we should discuss is your spending habits around the holiday season. And when I say your spending habits, I do mean mine. Let’s discuss.
Budgeting for the holidays is something that I never really cared for. Then I had 4 kids. Last year was a big huge eye-opener in regards to who, how, what, where and when our money should be spent. While I kept in check with the budget, it wasn’t easy and in order to make Christmas the event I want it to be, I learned it’s a year long process (so don’t yipe at me for discussing Christmas before Halloween or Thanksgiving).
So let’s discuss what works for me, then I want to hear what works from you.
Here are My 8 Tips for Budgeting for the Holidays after the jump!
So before you go blowing all that money on fancy costumes and candy for Halloween, remember Christmas is near!
Okay, there you go. There are my budgeting tips for the holidays. Now – your turn… tell me yours!
