How To Celebrate Christmas On A Tight Budget
How To Celebrate Christmas On A Tight Budget

Christmas is around the corner and everybody is thinking about that they are going to do on Christmas day and what presents they are going to get for their loved ones, but in all this happy chaos, some people are not fortunate to have plenty of money to spend on luxurious gifts and holidays.

So today we are teaming up with our budget and DIY squad to help you guys celebrate Christmas on a low budget.

Stay indoors

Many families are used to going out on special days like Christmas, this year we think that it is a good idea to go back to old school traditional Christmas, stay at home and enjoy a meal with family and close friends.

You will save lots of money that you could have spent on trips or holidays.

DIY

Instead of buying each other expensive gifts rather make something for your loved ones, cards, painted t-shirts, bags or bead necklaces and bracelets that is cheaper and will be around and cherished for longer.

The budgets squad says

Invite friends and relatives over for bring and share Christmas dinner, have yourselves a bbq with your close friends and family, and ask everybody to bring something that can be shared among the families.

That will help you save money and have fun at the same time.

Remember Christmas is about sharing and giving, and being together with families and loved ones, you don’t have to have a huge party and spend thousands on Christmas.  Remember all the best things in life are free.
