Holiday Tips

This is a stressful time of year. Make it as easy as you can for yourself.

  1. It’s okay to have a more frugal Christmas by making ornaments out of grocery bags, balsa wood, old Christmas cards, meringue snowmen and more.
  2. See our tips for saving up for Christmas in advance so you don’t go into so much debt in January.
  3. Shop online as much as you can. It really saves you so much time and makes getting the best deal much easier. Be sure to get Rakuten cash back on every purchase.
  4. Save money by wrapping with homemade gift wrap or recycled paper (you can make recycled paper yourself) instead of gift wrap. Either way, you save money and your gifts look cute and unique.
  5. Try to avoid last minute Christmas shopping.
  6. Get organized before buying gifts. Make a list of exactly what you’re getting for whom, then look for the best price on it, buy it, and boom, you’re done.
