Watch that Holiday Spending!

The holidays are an especially fun time of the year. Family and friends come together for food, laughter and of course gifts. With all this fun comes expenses and finding gifts for all the ones you love can be a tall task. Luckily, Powercat Financial is here to help you manage the holidays.

  • Budget: It’s important to know your total spending limit. This includes gifts, decorations, food and everything in between. Check out the Holiday Budget Worksheet available here for help creating your holiday budget. Additionally, visit our blog posted November 5th here for more information.
  • Utilize shopping websites: Shop online retailers such as www.overstock.com and retailmenot.com to find deals that the in-store locations may not offer. A little research and some price comparison can go a long way.
  • Create extra income: Working odd jobs over the holiday break can create extra income to help you afford the holidays. Offering to do yard work or shovel snow, babysit, or tutoring can make a major impact on your holiday budget.
  • Start early: Find deals on the gifts you want by giving yourself the gift of time and preparing for the holiday season early.

The holidays are a stressful enough time as is. Use the tips listed above and come meet with us at Powercat Financial to make the holiday season a little less stressful and a lot more fun. To request an appointment, visit our website at www.ksu.edu/powercatfinancial.
