I feel everyone spent a little more during the holiday season. Does anyone have any unique tips how you managed your finances during the holiday season?




I always formulate a holiday budget before the holiday begins. It helps me to balance the holiday spending as well as the routine expenses. Simple. Also, try to set aside money 2-3 months earlier. This will help you to enjoy the holiday season without taking the financial stress.

It's true that I spent a good amount on festive shopping but that didn't affect my finances since I used my emergency fund for covering the expenses.

My tip:

Create an emergency fund this year. Make it your New Year resolution.

Make a New Year resolution to plan a budget along with a holiday budget and start saving little every month towards your 2018's holiday expenses.

I have reduced my food cost during holidays by lowering my numbers of consuming colas and French fries. :)

I have decided to save a certain amount every month. Any extra earning will also go toward saving.
