Finance Tip: Buy Yourself a Holiday Gift

I don’t know about you, but when I do my holiday gift shopping for others, I always end up buying things for myself too!  So after years of pretending I could go without purchasing anything for myself, I finally decided to allocate a % of my holiday budget on a gift for me.  Now, I don’t feel guilty about the purchases I make for myself and I don’t go over my holiday budget either. It’s a win-win!
