Holiday budgeting can be so stressful when you didn’t properly prepare for the holiday in question. Christmas is my absolute FAVORITE holiday of the year and every single year, I don’t adequately prepare financially and ALWAYS end up overspending.
I find that not only do I overspend but I am so unprepared for the Holiday Season with work and schedule I tend to not be able to fully enjoy the season. With that being said for 2018, I fully intend on saving, planning and executing all as planned.
My plan is to save a bit of money as per the Christmas saving schedule as you are seeing below which I found on Pinterest. The next plan will be to start shopping for gifts as early as September so that I can wrap and place under the tree as soon as my tree is purchased.
This year I, unfortunately, purchased my tree very late for many reasons which I think affected my entire emotional well being. This year though, another aim is to control my stress and emotions thereby preventing the many repercussions.
My aim for 2018 is fewer regrets. More preparation.

The Holidays are very stressful only if you make it, so be prepared, show up and show out! Make checklists start planning early so that you can enjoy the season as much as possible. I sure do!
There will be further blog posts closer to the ending of 2018 where I’ll start detailing my plans and how but remember the first step is to start saving whatever you can to fit your budget so that removes the financial stress and it provides you with an actual budget where you can split however you choose.
If there is any advice anything you think you would want to read about on my blog page send me a message or DM on Instagram!
Wishing you nothing but a prosperous 2018!
