Have a Very Debt-Proof Christmas
Christmas may be the most wonderful time of year, but it’s also one of the most stressful and most expensive. Americans spend billions, crafting the perfect holiday season complete with lavish meals, new decorations and the latest, greatest gadgets and fashions for everyone on their gift list. Most don’t think about the hefty price tag until the credit card bill comes in January, and many will go thousands of dollars deeper into debt to finance the perfect holiday season.
For anyone who wants to have a less stressful, more joyful holiday season and celebrate without breaking the bank, syndicated personal finance columnist Mary Hunt is here to help.
“Here’s my challenge for you,” writes Hunt. “This Christmas, lock up the credit cards and let me show you how to experience the best Christmas ever with no debt, less stress, and more joy!”
In Debt-Proof Your Christmas Hunt helps readers assess their financial situation, commit to no new debt and think creatively about their gift list. With her guidance, readers will identify what has caused them to overspend in the past and approach this holiday season with a plan and a new attitude toward holiday spending. This just might be the best gift you can give yourself and your family.
This is a book I wish I had when I still had a family at home. I certainly needed it then.
I’ve managed to come to terms with a Christmas season that is much less materialistic as I continue to tr to simplify my life. Still, this book has given me insight and new ideas.
It’s still early enough in the season to put a lot of this into practice. If you’ve already blown it for this year, you can make this year’s plunge into (or further into) debt be your last.
Just think how it will feel to have a more enjoyable holiday next year. You can start anew with the new year.
