Take a sip of spiked or unspiked eggnog and let’s get this post started.
Since the start of November, sales have started all around us. Every retail outlet has targeted every demographic in the direct attempt to get us to buy.
And like a moth to the flame, we come pouring out our homes of quarantine to do just that. Somehow we neglect our fundamentals of spending and give into it.
We have the ability to resist though. While spending is the traditional holiday way, it doesn’t have to be. You can unfuck your savings accounts by remembering:
- What we are truly celebrating and if you’re not religious, use the thought of family togetherness as the foundation.
- Break the tradition and create your own. Give thanks to whom you need to.
- Sales can be hypnotizing. Snap out of it and stick to budget.
So spend if you must, but be wise about it. The holiday only last a day while your credit report is forever.
