Money, money, money.

With the stress of holidays coming, we all think that there will not be enough money to buy the presents, travel to see family and decorate the way we would like.  Here are some easy solutions for the holiday money stretch that can easily work for you:
  • Skip the travel and visit with Skype.  Plan a Skype party and invite the others to pour a drink, whip up a snack and then visit with each other.  Once you get use to the idea, you will love the time it saves and eliminate the headache of traveling during the holidays.
  • Decorate the way kids would.  You do not need expensive decorations.  Fix up a craft table, invite the kids to make decorations and then use them in the house.  If you don’t have kids, “pay” an elementary school class with pizza and ask them to make decorations for your home.  Invite the neighbors to a craft party and do the decorations as a group – the decorations will be fabulous.  Be sure to have lots of glue (washable), tape (kids adore tape), sparkles and colored paper
  • Presents are the best during this time of year when you give the gift of yourself.  Buy or make a card and give an IOU (I owe you) to people of your time and talents.  The first year my family did this, we LOVED the results.  I got dinner alone with my son-in-law; smart device instruction from my daughter; cooking time with my other daughter and an uninterrupted afternoon with my best friend.  The cards were great fun to share and give.  With hundreds of dollars saved!

Affirmations

Affirmations are just like positive thoughts.  We say them to ourselves to keep us in tune with the results we want and the freedom to choose the life that is most important to us.  Take a deep breath and say many times until you feel it and believe it.
