Stretching Your Budget
With malls starting to play Christmas songs, one can't help feel a bit of pressure to stock up on Christmas gifts. Rising prices, busy schedules, increasing family needs and incidental expenses also pile up so it's time to work up a strategy to save some money and stretch our wallet power!
Make a Christmas list early on before the crowds kick in. Take advantage of Pre-Christmas sales and stock up before prices skyrocket. This way you can still do some price comparisons before you make your final purchases. You'll also spend less time in lines and will get the best quality products.

  • Use your credit card sparingly. Cash purchases are less costly and help make your budget easier to keep track of.
  • Buy items that are an asset rather than a liability. A good example is saving up for a sewing machine and dressmaking classes rather than an expensive dress that may get ruined in the washing machine after the first night out. Sewing your own clothes may seem too hard but in the long run, you can save a lot of money by being able to alter old styles into new, do repairs or even start your own business!
  • Sell your recyclables: used paper, newspapers, bottles, scrap metal for extra cash. Have a garage or yard sale to get rid of useless clutter in your home.
  • Save on meal expenses by drinking water instead of juices and softdrinks. You will also get healthier since it's less sugar in your diet.
  • Use public transport, ride a bike or walk to destinations instead of taking the car if you can. Save on fuel, reduce smog and get some exercise too while you're at it!
  • Get a lot of free stuff online - pictures, fonts, software, music, e-books, games, websites all for free! Just log on to www.google.com and click on the numerous freebie sites. You can even donate for free! Just click to www.goodtree.com for the cause closest to your heart.
