It’s the most wonderful time of the year…or should I say the most expensive. As it turns out, there are very few times when life isn’t expensive for a busy mom or dad. You’re either buying for the summer holidays, birthdays or yes, the Christmas season. That’s why it’s important to know how to save, raise and make sure that your bank balance stretches further than you thought it could.

Have A Side Hustle

A side hustle is exactly how it sounds. It’s a job that you complete on the side of your main career. Believe it or not, for many people that can be blogging. They never see it as an option for a full career, but it makes them a nice extra amount of cash for expensive months through the year. Some people will be able to complete all of their Christmas shopping using the money they make from blogging.

Treat Saving As A Bill

Sometimes all it takes is the right frame of mind. If you’re struggling to save up those pennies, you need to take a firmer stance. You should treat saving each month as a bill, setting up a direct debit. That way, you can guarantee that you always have a little extra tucked away.

Look For Deals And Discounts

These days, you’ll find deals and discounts on almost everything that you buy. That includes holidays, to the weekly shop and even things like car insurance. There are always ways to cut the costs and spend a little extra. Businesses use these as marketing ploys, but customers can treat these discounts as ways to save. The following infographic shows how important online discounts have become for consumers like us.
