Saving for the holidays

Take a minute to think about food during this holiday season. Many of us grew up with big holiday meals and parties, or learned that “treats” were ways to show love or to reward good behavior. Remember what the holidays really mean to you, and let go of pressure to over-do feasts and treats. Plan thoughtfully. You may even want to set a holiday budget for food. Go ahead and plan for the traditional foods that have always meant a lot to you, but don’t overdo. And when you shop, resist the “extras” like decorations, holiday baked goods, or flowers that aren’t part of your plan. Plan ahead to save stress and money!
