Financial Tips for the Holidays

Keeping your finances in check is important. We understand that can become difficult around the holidays; there is the temptation to go all out and have the “best” gift. No spending is worth the financial pain, however.

Make a list, budget and stick to it

Knowing what you want to buy can prevent you from making impulse purchases.

Shop early

We know that there are good deals as the holidays get closer, and items also become more limited. This can lead to impulse buys.

Watch for coupons

Most stores offer coupons during the holiday season. You can sign up for texts or emails from stores or download an app such as Retail Me Not.

Remember what the season is about

Enjoy this special time with your friends and family and focus less on the dollar value put on gifts.
