5 Holiday Hacks That Won't Break the Bank

Oftentimes, the holidays can be a stressful time of the year and can leave us on a very tight budget. Don't let go of the merry and cheer, there are still some things you can do to embrace the most wonderful time of the year while keeping your bank account as jolly as Santa!

Make a list, and check it twice.

After the Thanksgiving holiday, it's no surprise that you will see many retail locations begin announcing their special holiday sales. Keep a watchful eye on everyone's wish list so you know what you are looking for when you are going out.

Let it glow, let it glow, let it glow...

… that is, if you plan on using LED Christmas lights. Leaving your incandescent lights on for a couple of hours in the night can quickly skyrocket your energy bill. Instead, switch to light-emitting diode (LED) bulbs; it's no secret that this can help save lots of energy.

It's the thought that counts.

Consider getting smaller items with a much smaller budget. This is your time to get creative with small personalized gifts that come from the heart! There's no need for a duplex, checks or even a ring (we don't mean on the phone).

The more the merrier?

With larger families, getting presents for every single family member can become a huge expense. Funnel your resources into a Secret Santa or White Elephant experience. This will help relieve some of the stress and financial burden of exchanging gifts with every member of the family.

Have yourself a merry little Christmas

If any classic holiday movie has taught us anything, it's that the most wonderful gift of all is getting to spend it with your loved ones. Give the gift that counts the most by spending more time with your families and build on any family traditions.

Although it's been said many times, many ways, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from your friends here at A-MAX Auto Insurance.
