The holidays are coming up fast! Are you financially prepared? If not, don’t despair; there’s still time! If you’re feeling overwhelmed with everything that needs to be done, and how to pay for it, here are some ideas designed to give you peace of mind.
1. Make a To-Do List!
Just get a sheet of paper, or a notes app on your phone and start writing or typing away! Jot down everything that’s in your head, anything that’s causing you stress because it’s one more thing you’ve got to accomplish! If you need more organization, add deadlines for each and prioritize the list – whatever it takes to stop you from going over it again and again in your head!
2. Create your holiday budget!
Now that you know what needs to be done, it’s time to figure out what it’s going to cost. Whether you’re planning for Halloween, Thanksgiving or Christmas, these budgets are proof that budgeting isn’t restrictive, but rather part of your planning process – to make sure you’ve got what you need, and give you time to go get it, if you don’t!
