Planning for Holiday Spending
Does every January find you cringing over your credit card bills? Do you find yourself every holiday season saying you will spend less this time--and then don’t? Now is the time to start planning for your holiday spending.
In order to accomplish this, you need a plan. Start by writing down a list of all of the people you are giving gifts to this year. Before you head out to the mall, decide on the type of gift you’d like to get and a price range. Trying to decide while in the store can lead to overspending. Shop early in the season in order to avoid last minute impulse buying.
To stay within your budget, take your list with you when shopping. Watch for sales and always compare prices. Use the Internet to find deals. Use your debit card or cash instead of credit cards to ensure that you are staying within your budget.
If you are unable to find the gift you want at the price you’d like, consider pooling your resources with another family member to get the perfect gift, or consider getting a gift certificate instead. This will allow you to control the amount you spend, while still getting a gift that will be appreciated.
