In the midst of much busy-ness here, but I wanted to get this week's M$M post up before the day got away from me!
So here we are nearing mid-September, and though it seems far away, the holiday season will be here in the blink of an eye. This is a busy time of year for most of us, so it's easy to get distracted and then head into the holidays unprepared - meaning, without a plan. And I know when I don't have a plan, I always end up spending more money!
Of course, the holidays - Chistmas, Hannukah, Solstice, etc. - by their very nature, have nothing to do with money. But as we decorate and celebrate and cook and clean and give and get, of course money comes into play. It's up to us to make choices that work for our families, both financially and spiritually ...
Keeping our holidays simple benefits not only our hearts but our budgets!
So my question for you all today is this:
How do you plan for holiday spending? And how do you keep your holiday budget in line?
If you have a moment or two, I'd love to hear your thougts on this subject. I'm planning several posts on holiday planning for later this month, so I hope you'll check in when you can.
Have a great day, my friends!
