3 Quick Tips on Successful Holiday Planning

1. Set a Budget

  • Plan ahead:  How much do you anticipate spending on gifts, travel, cards, stamps, food, etc.?
  • Decide how much you can really afford to spend - and stick to it, or you will regret it in January!
  • Remember:  it’s not about the cost of the gift, it’s the thought.

2. Shopping

  • Start early, don't wait until the last minute.
  • Don't go out without your list and budget of what you can spend.
  • Be creative!  Think outside the box for fun, unique gifts.
  • Look on charitable websites:  Some sites have nice items that are also inexpensive.

3. Menu Planning

  • Make a list of what you’re going to need.
  • Take inventory of what’s in your cupboards before you go shopping,
  • Check store sales flyers for items you need – this will help save you money.

Start early, follow these easy steps, and you will be ready, able to relax and enjoy the holidays!
