It's the first day of the September! you know what that means? It's the start of the "BER" Months.
We know this is the true start of Christmas season. This is also the season mothers such as myself get ready to go shopping for gifts, decorations and also for foods needed to be prepare for the Noche Buenas.
When it comes to Christmas, admit it, we are total spenders. There are also ways you can be ready and save more.
Here are some tips:
1. List down the necessary:
List down the things you needed like travel cost if you are alone and wanted to travel during the holidays. or how about the decorations you want for a party or you house. Set them apart by categories so you won't get confused. Budget is key to saving more of your money. You just have to learn to discipline yourself with money.
2. Create a gift list:
List the people you want to give a gift to. Of course, family is your number one on you list the rest are you friends and a very special someone. You won't need to give them such a expensive gift to know how special they are for you. Give them something significant that would let them remind of you :) Sample: Office mates you can give them flower pot note clippers it's not expensive but it's just the thing they need for the office.
3. Buy on Bazaars and sales promotions:
You can buy inexpensive but go out went to different bazaar where you can get your items. If you really want some cheap stuffs you can go to Divisoria for your Christmas shopping, although I don't recommend because how dangerous it is during Christmas season. Thieves roam around the area in search of their prey. But you can try The World Bazaar in World Trade Center. It is organized every year since 2012 but there is a entrance fee of P 50.
But the most important thing in Christmas is don't forget God is the center of your life. None of the things you have now or will be having would be possible if God is not present in your life.
