Tips to Avoid Big Holiday Bills and Jumpstart January 2019 with a bang!
Presented by Kathy Y. Morris, CCUFC
The first rule of money basics when it comes to giving – if you know you are going to overspend before you spend, look for other ways to show your love and generosity. Frame pictures you have taken over the year, design a 2019 calendar and include significant events and birthdays, or send cards with a heartfelt appreciation for their presence in your life and ask them to join you making a good start at financial freedom for 2018! You just might inspire someone!
Here are a few ways to avoid big holiday bills in January 2019.
- For starters make of list of those you want to buy a gift for. Include yourself. Put some ideas next to their name, so you will know what you are looking for before you walk into the store.
- Decide how much you want to spend. This is difficult but must be done! Also, then stick to your budget. Stress-free shopping beats stressful regrets on December 26 any day!
- Consider gifts of time – Help your friend with a project they have been talking about all year. Gifting to others can include our time, energy and skills to help with projects.
- Buy gifts that people actually need. This does require some thought, but it will be worth it.
- If you can, whenever a “three-paycheck-month” comes up, take that money and use that as your budget. Once it’s gone, remove yourself from the shopping premises and step away from the computer. By the way, if November is a three-paycheck-month for you, take advantage, and plan accordingly.
- There is still time to decrease stress for holiday spending. Start putting a little aside into a holiday fund to get you started on the right path towards enjoying the holidays debt and stress-free. Save a specific amount every month and deposit into a separate bank account or hidden envelope. Then the damage won’t be so painful.
