The holiday season can be hard on your budget, but 2020 has been exceptionally difficult for everyone. It can be hard to find innovative ways to create holiday memories without going into debt. Here our certified Housing Counselors top tips to help your holiday season stay stress-free and debt-free.

5 Budget-Friendly Holiday Tips:

  1. Virtually Visit with Santa Have Santa call you and your loved ones, right from the North Pole! Use the coupon on the site for a discount on your virtual visit with Santa. Even better, have a loved one dress up as Santa as a surprise to everyone on your video call.

2. Play Socially-Distanced Santa with Friends & Family Staying home can still be fun! Play Santa and safely spread cheer by dropping off baked goods or make a homemade gift for your friends and family. A small gesture will surely bring some holiday warmth!

3. Find an Easy Craft to Make Together Pinterest has many budget-friendly ideas for crafts, even for the not so craftiest of people!

4. Take a Christmas Light Tour Drive around your neighborhood, and look at the lights, or find a professional, drive-through light display like the Wayne County Lightfest.

5. Play a Game on Zoom  It isn’t over-played to get everyone together for a fun game on Zoom that can include everyone. Find something that everyone can play in this list of top 21 games to play on Zoom.

 

Whatever you do to celebrate this year, remember these words 

“The best way to spread Christmas Cheer is singing loud for all to hear.” – Buddy, the Elf (find out which holiday movies you can stream here)

Even if we can’t be together, we are together in spirit; Happy Holidays, and wishing you a healthy, safe New Year full of peace and HOPE.
