TRACK SPENDING OVER THE HOLIDAYS TO KEEP YOUR BUDGET HEALTHY
During the holidays, every penny counts. Gift buying, decorating, cooking and parties all cost money, so it’s wise to prepare well in advance. With a good strategy going in, the New Year will find your budget-and your peace of mind-intact. Make your holiday budget and track everything you spend through the season. That way you’ll never have to worry about whether an extra pumpkin pie means no turkey.
