1. Plan it
The secret to the success of anything lies in its planning, and creating a budget during the holidays is no different. A well-planned holiday budget keeps you and your family in check, so that everyone is poised from the get-go to not overdo it.
2. Think Outside the (Gift) Box
With so much to do, meals to cooks, gifts to wrap, we tend to forget some of the less obvious ways to stay aware of our budget. Sometimes it’s good to remember some of the little ways in which we can take control.
3. Don’t Worry, Be Appy
Yeah, we know. The holidays can get hectic. But lucky for us, we live in the age of technology and can benefit from the myriad apps out there to make our lives that much easier. Creating a good holiday budget is a piece of cake with the help of the virtual elves.
4. Get Crafty
Who says you have to even spend money to gift a great gift? Tap into your inner artiste and make something from the heart. It’s the thought that counts is a cliché because it’s true.
5. Get Creative
Again, we dare you to step out of the box and redefine what it means to gift someone a gift. Try to consider the possibility that some of the best gifts you could give are totally FREE.
6. Party Smart
Some of most costs seem to get incurred on throwing holiday parties—but not if you’re smart about it. Budget your party costs to keep your gift budget nice and happy.
