Christmas On A Tight Budget

Author : Philbert Manalo

Christmas is near. You see many of your neighbors buying new set of house decors for the upcoming holiday and many people on the road have started to shop for gift items for their friends and family. You also think it’s a nice idea to start shopping for yourself but then you realize that you don’t have enough money that you can spend for the entire holiday season. It’s saddening and frustrating but you have to do something in order to keep ends meet and be able to enjoy the holidays.
One option that comes to your mind is to try some money saving tips that you have heard from your neighbors and friends. But since you have heard too much, you seem to have forgotten most of them and you don’t seem to remember which ones really work. Here are some of the most common and most effective tips that you can try to celebrate Christmas even on a tight budget.
1. Make a list of visitors you expect on Christmas
Having a list allows you to make a rough estimate on how many people you may be expecting to visit you on that special day. This also allows you to have a clear idea on how much food and drinks to prepare, thus helping you to avoid unnecessary expenses.
2. Make personalized gifts
If you are on a tight budget, you may also want to try making personalized gifts to your family and close friends. More often than not, it will save you more money when you just know how to make use of what you know. Christmas time is one of the best times to showcase your creativity.
3. Leave your credit cards while shopping
Credit cards are best to be used in times of emergencies when you have no available cash in your pocket. But it might not be the best time to have your credit cards present when you’re about to shop for gift items when there are too many options available for you or else- you might end up seeing yourself with too much debt. Another great option is to just use a prepaid debit card instead of a credit card. That way, you can better manage your spending since you load money on your card before you make purchases which allows you to limit just how much to spend.
There are still plenty of ways that are helpful for us to save money and celebrate Christmas on a tight budget. With just some careful planning on where and when to buy stuff, you can make sure that you will not have to spend too much and use much of your limit from your debit and prepaid credit cards.
