FINANCIAL FRIDAY




Happy Friday! I pray you are having a great week! We are going into the last quarter of 2017 and I wanted to share a few tips to save money for the holiday season. This is definitely a season of spending which according to statistics has led to a significant increase in debt. In my opinion we have the ability to control the flow of our money but it takes preparation and being more conscious about our money choices.

1. Have a budget for the holidays to keep your spending under control. If you already have a current budget that you use for your finances then hooray for you! ..because it will be so easy to determine how much you can allocate towards your holiday spending.

2. Think outside of the box when it comes to giving. For example, it can be hectic for parents to shop with younger children so you can volunteer to babysit. Another option is volunteer at places in need like shelters. This is a great way to be a living example of what giving is.

3. When you start shopping early you get better deals. The closer you get to the holidays the more prices tend to increase.

4. Last but definitely not least do not forget the reason for the season. The world desires to have us thinking it is about material things. This is a time of family, fun, fellowship and  to celebrate our blessings from God.  Truthfully, we should not only celebrate just during the holidays but all days because the promise of joy is everyday.




Thank you as always for your support! Have a blessed weekend!
