Participant Corner: Holiday Budgeting

By February 20, 2019No Comments
This month ’s employee flyer gives participants tips for budgeting during the holiday season. Download the flyer from your Fiduciary Briefcase at Please see an excerpt below.  

The holidays are a time for giving, but often people can be a little overgenerous during this time of year and later find themselves in financial trouble. Consumer counseling agencies see a 25 percent increase in the number of people seeking help in January and February, mostly by people suffering from an influx of holiday bills.¹  

Here are our top tips for saving money during the holiday season:  
1. Create a Holiday Budget
Monthly Income – Monthly Expenses = Your Holiday Budget Make a list of everyone you will buy for and how much you will spend on each person, then stick to it!
2. Pay with Cash
When you pay with cash, you can get a better handle on how much you’re spending. You’re forced to stick to your budget, because you can’t spend cash you don’t have!  
3. Pay with Gift Cards
There are websites and stores where you can purchase gift cards at a discounted price. Shop with them and you’re automatically saving money. Shop for items on sale or at a discount store and save even more money!
