Christmas๐Ÿคถ๐Ÿพ On A Budget

I believe Iโ€™m not the only one that has changed in many ways during these years. Important to mention is that all we do right now will help us when situation gets rough-er. I sincerely believe that the current situation we are in right now is not gonna stay like this.

Thatโ€™s why Iโ€™m gonna give you three tips/advice on how we can celebrate Christmas on a Budget or more efficiently.

Plan and Write Down Spendings

What I have learned over the years is writing down spendings and write down what youโ€™re gonna buy but also itโ€™s smart to write how much the item is gonna cost because then youโ€™ll get a idea of how much money youโ€™ll need. This allows you to have a grip on your spending and it will make you more conscious of money spending.

Do You Really Need That?

Another thing to consider is โ€œdo I need this?โ€ whether itโ€™s Christmas decor, plates, this huge over the top Christmas tree or that Gucci bag. Think what truly matters for you money wise, remember December is only 31 days and most of the time January many of us are complaining about payday being to far away. Make sure to save some money especially when you have kids.

I Can Reuse That From Last Year

Right now Iโ€™m talking as a woman I know how women can be, we sometimes want everything new but we forget the current situation we are in. With that being said why not reuse Christmas decorations from last year? Iโ€™m sure there are few items we can use again this year. This way we can appreciate more and add value to things we already possess.

For me these are my top three tips on how to manage my spending, also I have to mention that I adapted this habit from my partner. Very intelligent move because every where you turn around you see discount signs and you REALLY get this desire wanting to buy something. Curious to know what other tip you have when it comes to spending or being on a budget during holiday season.


Maybe Christmas, he thought, doesnโ€™t come from the store. Maybe Christmasโ€ฆ perhapsโ€ฆ means a little bit more!

      Exactly my thought process.. we should be more cautious because we donโ€™t know how the first month of the new year will be. Always thinking ahead..

    I absolutely agree with tracking spending.. We can’t know where we are, what we can afford and how our habits affect our ability to save money without tracking our spending!
