How to save money during the Christmas season.

The festive season is full of life. We want to party, travel, meet up with friends, family members, and gift one another. While doing this we must be sure to keep in mind that this holiday season comes with so much excitement which can lead to poor spending and buying decisions. In other to spend wisely here are some tips on how to save money during the festive period.

1. Don't get too excited. The festive season comes with a rush, it has a feeling of love and joy flowing everywhere. After decorating and lighting the Christmas tree the seasons rush gets even more. You need to watch out for this feeling because it leads to careless spending sometimes.

2. Create a budget plan. Follow this plan, write out the list of what you need during the festive period. To be more practical we are not supposed to spend much but most people always tend to go for Christmas items with a high cost which sometimes doesn't even make much difference from the low-cost decors.

3. Budget-friendly purchase: Don't buy items for Christmas by taking a loan. This is a very stupid decision and also a foolish one at that. There are very cheap Christmas decorative items for less than $5 and if you don't have cash for that be creative let your DIY spirit come into play.

4. Stop unnecessary show-off. Most people who tend to live above their income want to show off and host parties that are above their living standards or income. They end up borrowing money or using their savings and forgetting that this is just a period that will come and go. This is why people fall into post-festive depression.

5. Gift wisely: All fingers are not equal, so don't go beyond what you can afford. That someone gave you an expensive gift doesn't mean you have to buy the person an expensive gift in return. If it is above your budget or you can't afford it go for what you can afford. Never borrow to gift any person for Christmas, that's also a stupid thing to do.

  3. These are really great tips. I also do re-gifting. I know it may sound controversial to some people but what am I going to do with the gift I don't need anyway. I receive 2x more pr gifts during Christmas season and so I re-gift a majority of them too.

  5. This is very informative! Before I buy gifts I always make it a point to consider the number of persons that I'm going to give and the gifts that I'll be giving. I also do canvassing so I can know which store has the cheapest offer. :)
