Savvy Saver Holiday Shopping
Make a holiday budget and a payback plan – To start, make a list of the people you need to shop for this year – don’t forget family, friends, teachers, neighbors, and co-workers. Decide how much you can afford to spend on each person. If you’ll be using a credit card to do some of your shopping, factor in how much you’ll need to pay back after the holidays. If you can’t afford to pay the balance off in full, calculate how much you will need to pay each month to get your holiday purchases paid off. The faster you can pay down your credit card charges, the less interest you’ll pay.
