Budget for the Holidays with this Interactive Tool
December 5, 2011
Without a budget, holiday spending can get out of control. A few unplanned gift purchases and a last minute plan to visit relatives for the holiday can add up fast.
Take the guessing out of how much you will spend this holiday season with ClearPoint’s Holiday Planning Tool. This innovative tool suggests a holiday spending budget for you based on your annual salary. You can then use their tool to break down your holiday spending over several categories including gifts, parties, travel, food, and donations.
I really like this tool because it takes into account more than just the gifts you will buy this holiday. Many people throw a holiday party or have to drive or fly to visit family and forget to budget for these items in their holiday spending plan.
This is a great tool for this holiday season and can help you get a jump on saving for next holiday season as well.
