Finance Tip of the Bi-Week

December 21, 2016

Have a Merry Christmas!

Don’t spend all your money. Read a book from the library or watch a bunch of made for TV Christmas movies.

Rogue One, the new Star Wars movie was pretty awesome so you may want to spend a little on that. That’s got Randy’s finance approval. 🙂  Just don’t buy the Pop and Popcorn. It’s crazy expensive, and if you buy too large of a pop you’ll miss an action scene to go to the bathroom because you drank too much of the pop.

Don’t feel you have to buy everyone a present this Christmas. On YouTube, there are tonnes of great videos about how to make things for gifts. If you’re the crafty type, try making something instead. It has more meaning and doesn’t cost as much. A couple of years ago I learned on YouTube how to crochet. Since then I’ve made about 7-8 blankets for various gifts, and they only cost about $25-$40 each depending on the cost of the yarn. It I would have been even cheaper if I would have looked harder for deals on yarn.

Also, you may be able to find a Christmas craft that you can make while watching TV, and then your TV time becomes productive present making time!

I heard a good finance tip the other day so I thought I would pass it
along.  We often hear the term “Going on a spending spree” especially on
days today like Black Friday. Instead of going on a spending spree, go on
a Savings Spree.  Change your thinking to change your financial future.

Go on a Savings Spree!
