How to Save Money for the Holidays with Cashco Financial

21

Though some of us are still running around in shorts and flip flops, before we know it, the holidays are going to be here! Soon that mad scramble of shopping, decorating, baking, and spreading holiday cheer will be taking over our lives. But, along with all the fun and excitement of the holiday season comes a lot of spending. This is also the time of year that we often feel the most financial strain, wondering how to save money for the holidays without breaking our budget.

Figuring out how to save for the holidays when your budget is already tight can be a real challenge. When you find yourself living from paycheck to paycheck, setting aside a large amount of money with each pay cycle isn’t always feasible. However, there are some tricks that can help you maximize your money around the holiday season, especially if you live in Canada.

How to Save Money for the Holidays

Start setting aside extra a few months ahead of time. Even if you can only manage to save a few dollars each week, that can add up, especially if you are using a savings account.

Set a specific budget for the holiday season and stick to it closely. While the sales and special offers of the season can be tempting, stay strong and resist the call of the shopping mall. Your wallet will thank you later.

Be thoughtful in your gift selection. Be sure not to choose gifts just because they’re a great price. More isn’t always better, especially when you’ve given a gift that isn’t a good match for the recipient.

Compare prices across a number of different stores and use price matching whenever possible. Also, add a browser extension that will find coupon codes or alert you to a lower price on another retailer. These simple installations may only save a few dollars at a time, but that can add up quickly over the holiday season.

With credit so easy to get, why would anyone want to save money and buy with cash? If you want something, you pull out the plastic and then pay it back with payments over who knows for how long. If you can afford the monthly payments, everyone does that; what’s the big deal? The unfortunate thing is that this sort of thinking is making sense to tip

After spending so many years in debt I always avoid loans. I like saving for Christmas or making handmade gifts instead 🙂

For me, the easiest way is to save a little bit every month. Having a list of things I would like to get also helps me so I don’t overbuy.

These are some great tips. I am terrible when it comes to the Christmas holiday. One thing that I do not do is use credit cards. I do not buy/order anything that I cannot immediately pay for.
