Seven Tips To Save Money
Festivals come with bonus and extra money for the working class. Business also tends to soar with the spending sentiment on an all time high. But the recent economic turmoil has made consumers wary of spending too much with little on hand for the rainy days. So for the cautious consumer we have put together 7 tips to save money during festive seasons. Let’s take a look:
Get creative: You don’t really have to buy decorative stuff for homes from the market. It will be an awesome idea to get together with friends or attend a workshop to make lanterns, diyas and other things with your hands.
Bring thoughtful gifts: Very often good gifts are confused with expensive gifts. It is not necessary to shower your loved ones with expensive stuff that is out of your budget. You’d much rather think of something useful. How about making a sugar free sweet and packing it in beautiful boxes for all close relatives? Not bad idea at all.
Start early: All retailers know you have lot of hard cash in your pockets during festive seasons. They will welcome you with lot of glitter and glitz and you won’t be able to escape the temptation of over spending. So, finish the shopping way before the season sets in.
Go Online: If you have gone past the shopping instinct of touching everything before purchasing, you can save big via online sites. Online sites cut off the middle man and give you major deals which are absolutely real.
Try Coupon Sites: Before you shortlist an online retailer for your festival shopping, make sure you know of all the deals and offers announced in the marketplace. Coupon sites bring to you an easy to browse compilation listed by categories so you know which retailer is being most generous.
Postpone unimportant things: We have a list of things to do during festive seasons but instead of spending little on all of them; it makes sense to postpone some and spend generously on rest of them. So consider avoid wastage on changing car interiors or buying new cushions only for to impress guests.
Avoid plastic money: Use cash or even debit card but stay away from the temptation of using plastic money as it takes away all limitations. You tend to overspend and on things you don’t need.
That said; don’t let saving worries take away the joys of festive season. Just strike a balance!
