Christmas is the time for celebration and giving gifts to your family, friends and loved one. However, most of the times people tend to spend more than they expected to and this leads to financial frustration in the beginning of the year itself. Therefore, if you read ahead you will learn how to shop for Christmas this year without spending more than your pocket allows you to:
• List of people to shop for – you need to make a list of all family and friends that you intend to give gifts to. This way you will know exactly how many gifts to buy and how much you can spend on each one of them.
• Make an overall budget – you must make a budget on how much you can afford to spend on buying gifts this Christmas. Moreover, make sure that you add the extra expenditure like the dinner cost, decorations, your personal clothing’s etc. in it. Many people forget to calculate the extra expenditure and in the end have to spend more than they could have afforded.
• Make only cash payments – now, this is an important point, people go shopping with their credit cards and this could lead in over expenditure in the end. Since the credit card bill will come the next month at times you relax thinking that you do not have to pay right away. So make sure you go shopping with hard cash instead of using your credit card.
• Find heavy discounted shopping deals – since it is Christmas most of the stores offer discounted rates and excellent deals. However, you will need to research a little before you buy so that you get the best deals and buy quality stuff at cheaper prices.
These were a few things that should be kept in mind while shopping for Christmas on a budget. Happy shopping and Merry Christmas to one and all!
