Preparing for the Holidays is surely something to take seriously! There are so many things to do like hanging the lights, getting the perfect tree, and searching for the perfect gift for friends and family. The holidays can also cost us a little more than usual this time of year. Fortunately, there are many ways to save on certain expenses. Here are some tips to keep in mind while preparing for the most wonderful time of the year!
· Gift Creatively – You do not have to spend a ton of money to show someone that you care. Many people would be thrilled to receive a handwritten card or a gift you made yourself. There are many websites like Pinterest that have great DIY craft ideas.
· Save on the Holiday Party – This year rather than providing all the catering yourself, recommend having a potluck where everyone brings either a food dish or a dessert. It’s a great way for everyone to try something different!
· Enjoy Free Holiday Activities – The holidays offer plenty of activities that don’t cost a penny! Check out your local newspaper for holiday shows, drive around your community to enjoy neighbor’s lights, or make ornaments and decorations from scratch with the family.
