Monday Minute – Saving Money During the Holidays

Happy Monday and Welcome to another Monday Minute!

We are in the throws of the holiday season where our waistlines are expanding but our wallets are shrinking! 

While there’s a ton of festivities going on, I’m going to share a few ways to actually SAVE some money this year. 

  1. If you’re going to a holiday party with friends, coordinate a carpool and share parking expenses.  Parking can cost up to $25 dollars in the city for only a few hours and that’s money that can be better spent on other things.
  2. Don’t buy a new dress or outfit for every holiday party. I’m mostly talking to myself here as this is my one toxic trait…  You can throw on a fun pair of shoes, add blingy jewelry, do your hair differently, or try layering to get a fresh look (while going full Lizzie McGuire outfit repeater *gasp*)  
  3. DON’T buy clothes full price. Typically, the discount cycle isn’t very long and the BEST time to buy party dresses or winter clothes are in late December or January.  

I hope these tips help you save money this season and thanks for joining in on the Monday Minute.
