How to Prevent Your Holiday Spending From Going Out of Control

I am not an extravagant. I keep a close eye on my spendings. But there comes a time in the year when I want to splurge. We all do. Festivals are a great excuse for that! As usual, this year I was out for shopping with a long list. Old habits die hard and having a list is a much while shopping. I went 7 times to shop for Diwali. Yes, 7! It was all good the first time. I bought many things - all useful and I didn’t care for the price. On the second day, I bought many things I liked, some unnecessary and some ‘new in the market’ - oh, I must try these! It was only after my 3rd Diwali haul, I realized I was piling bags in my bedroom and I might not use them all. It shook me as I am that ‘I stick to the list’ type of girl. So, where was I wrong? I took my list to have a close look and here’s what I found out - Set a Budget I had a list but I had no budget. Even with splurging we need a budget. We shouldn’t max-out our credit cards.

Girl With Extra Baggage*

I built four walls around you Called you home You left and made my heart homeless *She carried only three dresses in the bag but a big tsunami inside her. **Image Source - Here

Lending Money to Friends and Family – When to Say No

I believe in helping friends and family. What’s the point of having money if we can’t support our near and dear ones? I must admit, there have been situations where I have regretted lending money. Once, someone delayed the payment to unbelieving long time and started avoiding us. The other time, we saw this person splurging money on luxuries without even bothering to return our money. One should never lend their hard earned money to undeserving people, no matter how close the relation is. There comes a point when saying NO is the best call. After a few unsavory experiences, I have learned to say no on these occasions - When Someone Wants Money for a Luxury Purchase This one is a definite no-no. Lending money to support education, medical emergency or to make the deficit for a big investment, like a house, is understandable. But lending money to buy a car is not. This is among the few situations where I refuse to lend money. There are certain purchases that can certainly wait.
