Christmas is not that far away, and that means more and more people are starting to worry how they're going to cope financially. Here are some tips on how to reduce your financial stress.
1. Save up for Christmas
If you set aside a small amount of money each month, you will hopefully have enough money by December to cover your Christmas costs and there will no need to use the credit card.
2. Budget, budget, budget
Draw up a budget. If you plan ahead and work out exactly what you need to buy, you’ll be less likely to waste money on stuff that you don’t actually need. It also makes sense to set some priorities. Do you need to buy presents for every member of your family?
3. Shop around and get cashback
You cut your Christmas costs by shopping around and see who is offering the best deal. You could get some more money back if you use a cashback credit card for your spending
4. Use only cash to purchase items.
Avoid credit cards if possible. You could spend more than you can afford to repay and That's the situation you want to avoid most of all.
Enjoy your holidays without financial stress.
