Holiday Preparation and Spending Tips

Holiday season is just around the corner. Around this time, families and friends are busy organizing their Thanksgiving party, where it will be held and who is hosting it. It gets overwhelming to plan a party and sometimes, we go crazy on what we want to buy. If you are hosting the party, ask guests what they want to bring or delegate tasks. Make it a potluck party!

Also, it is better to make a list of what you really need and check your kitchen for what you already have before heading to the market. Remember that there will different type of entrees so you should buy or make less as you are not feeding a full meal with one entrée. When you go to the market, stick to your list and avoid going to each aisle as you might find yourself buying unnecessary items that look good or are on bargain but you do not really need. Always ask yourself, the question, “Do I really need this?” before buying something. Another tip is to make sure you have eaten when you go to the market as shopping when you are hungry will make you buy more.

Be creative, there are a lot of DIY projects for decorations that you can check ,and even your table settings and choice of color for food and desserts can serve as decorations. It is after all about the spirit of Thanksgiving and not the extravagance.

Most of us get excited about Black Friday Deals and are planning to go the mall or to the nearest outlet or shop online. It gets tempting to shop on these days for our Christmas presents and even for ourselves since we think we are getting bargain deals. Before you do, once again, make a list of the people you want to buy presents for and think of what you think they will like so that you will have a plan of which shops to visit and where to go. If you are on a tight budget, try making something. Food is always a good option for Christmas presents, make your favorite recipe of cookies and put them in a nice packaging. Homemade stuff is always better than store bought and will not cost you as much too. Once again, it is about the spirit of giving and not about spending.
