When the holiday season rolls around, families across the country struggle to maintain the delicate balance of staying on budget while also celebrating the holidays with a festive spirit. Here are some tips for keeping these celebrations and parties from completely draining the year’s budget.
- Consider making a signature cocktail instead of hosting a complete open bar when having parties. These drinks can tie in with the theme of the party and can be fun for guests, without the cost.
- Rather than wasting money on pre-baked goods, make large amounts of sweets before the holiday parties begin and freeze them.
- Buy Christmas cards in January, when everything is on sale, and use them the following holiday season.
- Consider doing a Secret Santa for large families or large social circles to avoid having to buy presents for too many people
- Those traveling for a week or more might consider renting out the house and using the money to fund their travel
