It’s the holiday season and unlike the holidays of the previous years, we are in the middle of a pandemic! Money is a little tight and everyone around you is wanting a PlayStation 5. No worries here’s a list of five ways you can still put a smile on your loved one’s face without breaking the bank.

1.Give yourself a budget—and don’t budge

Yes, it’s easier said than done, but here’s a tip: Write a list. Make a list, check it twice and choose what’s a need versus what you want.

2. Don’t wait until the last minute

It’s a lot going on, but you don’t want to be that one having to settle for the lotion everyone picked over at Bath & Body Works. Be like Nike and just do it.

3. Use discount codes or coupons

There is always a discount online or a coupon in the mail. There’s no shame, everyone is doing it.

4. Shop thrifty

The dollar store has some hidden gems, like puzzles, dolls, books. You can also get your wrapping paper and gift bags for just a dollar.

5. Have a potluck

This one is a little tricky, because of the pandemic. Make it fun though and do a drive-by potluck with your friends. Saving money and you can still get your holiday meal.

Hopefully you are able to use these tips to help out during the holiday season. Remember it is the thought that counts, and less about the dollar amount.
