New York City at Christmastime is a dream. Little ones stare in wonder at twinkling lights, elaborate window displays and special productions. The overall holiday goodness injects the city with a specific sort of magic that I imagine my kiddos will always remember. With two believers at home, we’re determined to take in as much as possible.
That said; December can bring a financial strain on families – even while being cognizant of spending. In our family, we don’t let the kiddo-gifting get out of control, but we do like to focus on the family experience that will someday fill-up childhood memories. Below are a few of our Holiday saving tips:
- Set Spending Limits With Family: A huge part of the Holiday magic is gifting to the little ones. It’s helpful to sent spending limits that everyone is comfortable with – especially in large families.
- Gift Homemade: Homemade gifts are doused in love and thoughtfulness. Whip up those special recipes and homemade projects – and get crafty with child-made art and gift wrapping.
- Develop a Budget: Develop a budget that is right for your family and stick to it.
The Holiday season is also a great time to actively seek out the incredible deals that pop up during this time of year. Cricket Wireless has an amazing line-up of devices and plans to make keeping in touch with loved ones affordable. Check out Cricket’s Holiday Promotions here – with plans starting as low as $35.
Saving in one area allows us to grab extra ornaments from the giving tree at church to donate toys to local families in need. It’s a great way to tangibly teach children about the spirit of giving to others and a meaningful part of our Holidays. Holiday savings also allows us to focus on the family experiences that make Christmastime so incredible.
