Are you one of those people who plans and prepares months in advance or are you one of those people that seem to get caught by surprise when December rolls around?
Do you set and stick to a Holiday spending budget or do you spend the 6 months after the Christmas Holidays paying off the debt you racked up on gifts?
Do you spend the Christmas Holidays enjoying friends, family, and the holiday season or do you wind up feeling tired, frazzled, overwhelmed, anxious and stressed?
I’ve definitely been the frazzled, tired, stressed and overwhelmed Mom during the holidays and I’ve had my share of years spending months paying off my credit cards after the holidays and it’s sucked the holiday spirit out of my home many times.
On the other hand, I’ve had Christmas Holidays that went smoothly. Gifts were all purchased (or made) and wrapped up months in advance. No last minute running to the malls. No pressure or stress. And believe me, those Christmas Holidays were wonderful and filled with Holiday spirit.
