Celebrate the holidays without breaking the bank

Debt ProofChristmas arrives every year right on schedule—same date, same expectations—and every year right on schedule, many of us are trying to add more events to our schedule, more gifts to our list and more money to our credit cards.

Mary Hunt, Founder of Debt-Proof Living, remembers the worst Christmas she ever had in her book, “Debt-Proof Your Christmas.” After hiding bills from her husband to have enough money to spend on Christmas presents, it wasn’t enough. With every credit card maxed and no extra money, Hunt took drastic measures which just mad e matters worse.

Making poor financial decisions around Christmas is easy to do. The best advice from Hunt’s book is to have a spending plan. She guides you through a process of how to decide how much you can spend without causing additional stress. Several chapters are devoted to homemade Christmas gifts with recipes and instructions as well as a family fun chapter which lists free activities your family can participate in together which will add joy to the holiday season and create lifelong memories.
