Well gang, we finally made it to December 2020. I don’t know about you, but back in March when Utah shut down for a month, I didn’t expect to be writing about Christmas during COVID 9 months later… Alas, here we are, and we can still make it a holiday to remember- in a good way! You might not celebrate Christmas, but these same tips apply to whatever you are celebrating at this time of year. Depending on where you live, you may be experiencing different levels of gathering restrictions. In general, though, large group gatherings, concerts, programs, etc. are just not happening this year. This can potentially be a bonus for your wallet.
By taking the money that you normally spend on attending holiday events and putting that money into savings, you can get a few steps closer to your financial goals. On the other hand, it can be tempting to sit at home and shop on-line since we now have more “free-time”. This could derail your budget and even put you into debt.
There are many things you can do this season to enjoy the holidays without turning to retail therapy.
