Do you love the holidays as much as I do? I love the season and all the fun it brings. There is hot cocoa and holiday movies, putting up the tree, family time and of course the presents. There are a lot of great memories to be made, but often those good memories come with a price tag, don’t they? Well, the last thing we want to do is to get in debt and create more stress over family fun so with a little intentional planning and a budget in mind the holidays can be just as fun and not leave us with the holiday blues afterwards. Let me share some fun ideas for enjoying the holidays and staying on budget.
Holidays are meant for making memories and when we keep that in mind it helps us focus on more than just the gifts. Think about fun first and how to give time instead of money. Time is very valuable as we know, and the best memories will be made when we are present and enjoying ourselves rather than stressing about money. With some intention and financial goals set this could be the best holiday season yet!
