November to Remember Week 4: Share Your Holiday Budgeting Tips

Here’s what some of our SaverLife members had to say:

“I tend to get carried away wanting to decorate A LOT. I decided I need to just buy a few things each year and then over time I’ll have plenty! For gifts with loved ones, open communication is important and setting cost limits.” –Morgan on Instagram

“I start saving for the Christmas season 6 months before. I make a list of gifts and the prices and start setting aside for those gifts. Whenever I have lose change I put it in a sealed jar and don’t open it till it’s time to do all the shopping.” –Milissa on Instagram

“Purchase gifts year-round so you don’t face the dreaded holiday shopping.
Wrap gifts in solid color paper as you buy them. That way, you can use the gifts for “any” occasion. Just dress-up the wrapping for the holidays. This will help you adhere to your budget and make for a less stressful season. #budgeting” –Barb on Facebook
