Trimming Tips for Holiday Spending In our holiday rush to shop, we may sometimes lose sight of unexpected expenses such as car or home repairs, winter-time utility costs, upcoming holiday-related expenses such as gift- giving, meals eaten away from home or meals for extra guests. Take time to estimate total holiday season costs, such as the cost of travel to visit ex- tended family, cost to host holiday meals, gift exchanges, added work- related expenses, and other expenses that are in addition to gift-givil]g. Keep in mind that end-of-year ex- penses such as real estate taxes due in December. also will need to be paid. Families and friends may also choose to reduce spending to save for a vaca- tion, attend a special event, or buy a new sofa. Children may have a long list of wants, so the holidays can offer an opportunity to help them prioritize and to separate needs from wants. Also review personal finances to determine the money available for holiday ex- penses without adding debt. Some families and Work groups choose to limit gift gwmg and instead provide food and gifts for a less fortu- nate family or individuals Such re- placements don't mean that family and friends agree to skip gift-giving. Many people will still want to exchange gifts and may elect to draw names or. place a limit on the value of the gifrto:curb To help with holiday spending, here are 12 trimming hints./.Start by mak- ing a list of the people to whom you would like to make a gift and a few gift ideas for each. ,Then talk with family and friends about their expectations tbr the holidays. When asked, family and friends often report that holiday foods (such as cookies or other recipes remembered from previous holidays) or0ther activities rather than purchased gifts, will make their holidays more happy..Shop with a list, and stick to it. • Shop when well rested, and not hun- gry. -Choose a date and time when stores are least likely to be crowded. such as week days or early mormng hours, .A gift need not be expensive to be a hit. Choosing less expensive gifts,, more people also are shopping for gen- tly-used items m thrift, dollar or dis- ' count stores. *Divide shopping respon- sibilities, fsuch as some each week) rather than planning a marathon. Fa- tigue may prompt less appropriate, or more costly, gift choices..Read the fine print on gift cards before buying. *Ask.about return policies before b@- ing. *Carry an envelope to organize receipts. *Track spending to help ease holiday spending next year. ,If your credit card has a balance and you're paying interest, good advice is leave the credit card at home. and use cash. checks or a debit card to cover holiday expenses. When you stretch the truth, it breaks the trust. FRESHLY MADE KETTLECORN %>'.: % :... q Makes Great Gifts! Various Sizes Call to order 785-545-6233 i,€.
