It’s that time of year again! Halloween is over and its time to start thinking about Thanksgiving and Christmas. Holidays can be very expensive especially if you have a big family to feed and buy gifts for. If you are looking to save some money this holiday season, here are some tips…
A good way to save money for Thanksgiving is to get a accurate count of how many people will be attending your celebration and buy the right amount of food for your guests. You can also buy a turkey when it’s on sale at the grocery store and store it in a freezer if you have one.
Using coupons is another good way to save money. Being an extreme coupon user can pay off if you have the time for it because you could potentially receive money back for the things you buy.
You may be better off buying your Christmas or Hanukkah gifts throughout the year instead of all at once right before the holidays. When you are doing your holiday shopping, make lists and check things off as you go through it because then you will be organized and prepared.
As hard as it can be, don’t give in to those guilty feelings that cause you to over spend. Remember that the holidays are more about spending time with friends and family and less about presents.
Trying to save money through out the holidays can seem impossible but it can be done.
Hopefully this article helps you save a little bit of money this holiday year!
