This time of year can take a lot out of you, mentally, physically and financially. We want to help you hold on to your money and still have the amazing holiday your family dreams of. Here are some ways you can keep money in your pocket and still enjoy this hectic time of year.
Make your whole house smell like the holidays you remember as a child by boiling a pot of all your favorite spices in water (Try: 2 apples sliced, 2 cinnamon sticks, 1 lemon slice, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and 4 cloves). The spices will evaporate into the air creating the potpourri that takes you back to your childhood. It’s easy and doesn’t require anything other than being home to monitor it. Do this every holiday season and you will create that same tradition for your children.
Save on Postage
Free ecards instead of mailing can save you money on cards, postage and even time. Just download a free ecard app from your app store. Most ecard apps will allow you to utilize through Facebook, email, etc. You can even upload pictures and create fun layouts.
One of the best ways to save money on gift-giving during the holidays is to make gifts. Homemade gifts are much more personal and enjoyable because so many people can’t take the time to make gifts. Things like homemade cookies wrapped in cute packaging, painted ornaments from the dollar store or even “coupons” for babysitting or cleaning are greatly appreciated.
If you’re interested in decorating for the holidays but don’t want to spend a lot of money, just add small touches. Go to your local discount store and pick up some festive hand towels for the bathroom and kitchen. If you put up a tree, make it small which will require fewer ornaments. Fill your reusable soap dispenser with a festive color soap and use ribbon to make cupboards and doors look like packages. Check out our other blog For More Holiday Decor on a Budget.
