Another Holiday Gone, Another One to Come...Are You Prepared?

With one holiday down, along comes another, Easter.  If you aren't one for celebrating this holiday and others, good for you.  People can better manage their finances when they pick and choose what holiday or event they are attending.  However, for those who feel obligated to celebrate one holiday after the next, here are a few tips.

Begin saving your money as soon as the last one ends.  

You can get a good idea of how much the next holiday event will cost you if you start searching online for the products you will need.  For instance, many parents attend church and decorate themselves and children in their Sunday Best during Easter.  If this is you, it would make sense to start checking out the stores who have reasonable prices on dress clothes for youth.

Start enlisting help as soon as you can for the next holiday celebration.

If you are the one doing the planning or assisting others, it is never too early to start talking about the meal plan, who is attending, what activities will be presented, and the cost.  It is better to know early what the response might be like from family and friends.  If there is a lack of interest, it just might be a blessing in disguise.  Therefore, you can redirect your money to more important things like paying down debt or having some money available for that emergency right around the corner.

Listen to the advice of others.

As hard as this can be sometimes, yet listening to your partner, children, and other relatives can be most beneficial when you are on the fence about some things related to the holidays especially when money is lacking.  Far too many moms try to be everything to everyone that they end up becoming overwhelmed, irritated, and impatient while the next holiday fast approaches.  If a partner is cautioning, "Honey, you're doing too much."  Heed the warning.  If children are behaving strangely or just don't want to travel here and there, consider their feelings.  If someone or something means that much to you and you must be with that person or group during the holidays, sometimes it is just better to travel alone and plan your festivities at that relative's home rather than yours. 

May you have fun this year with all your holiday celebrating!
