Money Saving Ideas for Christmas 2018

Christmas 2018 is coming up sooner than you may realize! Halloween is over and you may have noticed Christmas gets talked about quite more frequently now. So much can go into preparing for Christmas and your community bank at the Lake of the Ozarks is here to give you a few money saving ideas to help you while you prep. To save money in an account that helps you build your savings automatically, call First Bank of the Lake today at 573-348-2265 and ask us about savings options that can work for you and your family.

Money Saving Ideas for Christmas 2018

Don't be afraid to make your own Christmas decorations.
Do it yourself decorations can not only be unique and creative but also cost-efficient. You can save quite a bit of money simply by choosing to make your own tree decorations and Christmas decor. Do a quick online search for tutorials.

Make a Christmas gift shopping list.
Plan out what you will be buying and write it down. This can help prevent you from impulse buying and spending more money that you don't necessarily have to spend.

Take advantage of the sales!
Black Friday and Cyber Monday are your best friends around this holiday season. You can save an enormous amount of money by being patient and waiting for these huge sales before you do your Christmas gift shopping. Black Friday is the Friday after Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday is the online sale on the Monday after Thanksgiving. You should also check around and see what department stores will be open on Thanksgiving with sales as many do that now.

Consider gift exchanges.
Rather than having to buy a gift for everyone in your party, a gift exchange can allow you to just buy one gift for whoever you draw at random. This can save you a lot of money as well.

Consider a pot luck.
Potlucks allow you to save money because this involves everyone bringing you a dish versus you having to spend money on several ingredients to cook several dishes.
