The holidays are right around the corner and for many of us, that means the stress of making the holidays more affordable comes along.

You shouldn’t have to choose between putting a turkey on the table or buying your child a gift, that’s why I’ve come up with this list of great tips for you and your family to make the holidays more affordable.

Set a Budget

I know, no one ever likes to hear how they should be spending their money, but setting a budget during the holidays can help your holiday spending go further. Setting a budget can help prevent useless spending, allowing you to afford more this holiday season.

Shop Online Using Promotional Codes

Shopping malls are very busy this time of the year, to reduce stress and save money by doing some holiday gift shopping online. Most of the time, online sales are better than in store, plus you can use promotional codes – something you can’t do in-store. Shopping online with promotional codes will allow you to effortlessly save money on the things your family wants.

Start Shopping Early and Often

Most people who live paycheck to paycheck don’t have an extra few hundred bucks lying around to spend all on one shopping trip. Say no to the credit cards and yes to making a few extra shopping trips throughout the year. Not only will you avoid buying everything all at once, but you’ll save yourself the stress and be able to buy things with little chunks of money at different times.

Implement the 4-Gift Rule

Christmas isn’t supposed to be about gifts, but nowadays, we make it all about the gifts. Get back to reality by implementing the 4-gift rule. Not only will you save yourself a ton of money, but you’ll help keep your family to stay humble and kind.

Never heard of the 4-gift rule? It’s easy, you buy 4 gifts:
Something they want
Something they need
Something they wear
Something they read

For those who have hard to buy people to check off their Christmas list, you can earn fuel perks just for buying gift cards.

I love the 4 gift rule. Totally going to implement that this year. Now that we own four horses money is quite tight and we just don’t need the added stress of holiday shopping unnecessarily.

These are really great tips! I’ve been trying to stick to the 4 gift rule for years – maybe this will be the year I succeed… LOL I am really great when it comes to shopping early, finding the sales and using my rewards cards though.
