Five Tips For Spending Wisely During The Holiday Season

The holidays are upon us, and while shopping for friends and family can be fun, it can also be expensive. Save yourself (and your savings) from the stress of overspending this holiday season by following these tips from Telhio:

  1. Make a list and check it twice. Generate a list with names of individuals you plan to buy for. Assign a spending limit for each person and stick to the amount you budget.
  2. Start early. The more time you give yourself to shop, the more bargain-conscious you can afford to be. There are great deals to be had before the shopping season officially begins.
  3. Watch for accuracy. Everyone makes mistakes, even the person ringing up your sale. And with long lines of stressed shoppers at the register, mistakes are even more likely. Check your receipt to make sure you were charged correctly and received sale or discount prices.
  4. Save your receipt. After checking for accuracy, put your receipt somewhere you will be able to find it later. That way you can track your spending as you go, but also efficiently return items if needed.
  5. Start a holiday savings club today for 2016. Telhio offers savings clubs that allow you to save a little each month and get a check back right in time for the holidays next year!
