Money-Saving Ideas for the Holidays
It’s helpful to hear new tips for saving money around the holidays, so Mission Fed asked some experts for their favorite money-saving tricks. Starting to shop and save early is a clear theme, with one expert starting her shopping in August. Other shopping suggestions include looking at secondhand and store brand options to discover great deals on excellent finds. Choosing no- or low-cost gifts was another idea, encouraging thoughtful gifting over spending. Finally, experts suggest taking advantage of free resources and savings help available to you through your financial institution. Read on to find out how to save money this holiday season!

Holiday Spending Guide
When it comes to holiday spending, it’s easy to spend more than you intended. Making a budget and starting your savings early can really help you avoid spending too much. Start by accounting for all the things you’ll need to spend money on, from holiday meals to travel to gifts. Then, estimate what you think you’ll need to spend and start saving! The earlier you start your saving and your shopping, the more money you can save. Don’t forget to make small changes in your spending habits, too. Small changes can add up to big savings over time. Enjoy your holidays without stressing about spending—let Mission Fed help.
