Have a Christmas present list completed early so you know what presents to get people. Start your Christmas shopping a few weeks beforehand so you will have time to buy all your items. Plan a family day for putting up the Christmas tree. Make shopping lists and try to stick with them. Try not to spend too much money over the Christmas season.
Visit friends and relatives and wish them a Merry Christmas and organise things to do with them over Christmas. Plan things a few weeks beforehand. Set a budget in advance and try and stick with it and stick with that amount of money and do not overspend it. Put aside what you can afford a few weeks before Christmas. The most expensive time to buy is just before Christmas, so try to pick out what you want a few weeks before Christmas.
Have a list and check it to make sure who you are spending on and what gifts you can afford. Know how much everything will cost you and where you can find it at the best price before the season starts. You will also have a better understanding of travel times so you can map out routes.
Enjoy the Christmas Season and I hope Santa is good to everyone.
