Two Ways to Spend Less This Christmas Season
It’s Christmas! It is gift giving, dining, merry-making, and shopping time. Well, the common thing about all this is about money. What does not come easily nor easy to hold, especially in this Christmas season. This is true for everyone! Well, at least most people in the world.
Growing up poor is not a good thing, but at least now I feel very good about it. I knew the feeling of wanting something and keep trying especially during the Christmas season, but it just does not get through it
, best of all, it does not matter much where you end and you’re at the bottom anyway and there is no other way to go but up. In my years of struggle, I found a way to celebrate the holiest day for me without even having to spend much. So, why do we celebrate Christmas without spending a dime of savings account?When can you say that is Christmas? When the air is cold
, Christmas decorations are hanging on the walls
, tasty food on the table, and that Santa pace is singing everywhere. Let’s get a few ways to get these things at minimal cost
. Here are two important tips of spending less this Christmas season
1. Follow the culprit, see the store!
The Store. It is where we spend our money most of the time. If you want a peanut, you’ll go to the store. If you want something, technically, the answer is the store. Instead of being a victim, choose to be a wise man beating market strategies.
So when out to the mall, spend some time wandering around or simply do some window-shopping. It is such a nice thing. Define your being so free. What I also like about it is that keeps you updated about new things – technology, new designs on the carpet, new place to hang out, new flavors of coffee – and most importantly, the prices!
Yes, that is our goal. Technically, there are two trends in the market. The first is that it is a seasonal product with a higher price only during their seasons. This includes thick jackets and sweaters winter, flashing lights and balls for the Christmas season, to name a few. The second is–all-season hit-to–product. These are the products you need for the whole year and every day. Now, you have to understand and outline your needs. What you want to prepare for Christmas? If you want some seasonal products, then do not get them during the season. Prices tend to lose at least 25% and more off the season. In the second category, you can budget your money buying things on sale or offered as a promo 3 plus 1, for example. By doing so, you can get more while still spending less.
2. Do not just be personal, customized.What is defined as a person who is alone. That’s also what makes giving you the advantage of this Christmas season
, an expensive one
! Of course I do too
. But most people prefer personalized gift
. Special and unforgettable.
Well, what makes it different from a nice home, frugal food? It still works the same. So grab your cookbook and find something that will not cost much, but make everyone says “hmmmmm”. Well, it’s not Christmas without the tasty food. Moreover, shopping too. The food is good for all seasons. Watch for sales.
There you have it, you can easily spend less this Christmas season!
