Green Candy Resource from Pete the Planner

osherov-4064  It’s ironic that the time of year where we give thanks for what we have is right around the time where we give and receive hundreds of gifts. “Let’s give thanks and then buy each other a lot of stuff,” seems to be the theme of the season. But it doesn’t have to be. Instead of jumping directly from giving thanks to getting caught up in the shopping frenzy, allow the thankfulness to be enough. Take time to be with family and friends, and if you decide to give gifts, consider giving shared experiences. Your best holiday memories are those with friends and family, so this year extend that thankful spirit over the entire season. Of course, the bonus to this way of living is you won’t regret your financial life in January! Use to set and keep financial goals over the holidays.
