The holidays are a fun time of year full of gift giving, festive holiday parties and events and fun holiday activities that we all love and look forward to every year. And we all know that the months after the holidays can sometimes be filled with piles of bills and high credit card statements. How will this tough economy affect you and your family this holiday season?
Let’s face it, the economy is horrible this year. But when you think about it, the economy can be bad, money can be short and tight but the holidays still happen; everyone still has a baby, couples still get married and your child still has a birthday that needs to be celebrated every year. Maybe you’ve cut back on the amount of extra activities you do, stopped going to Starbucks five days a week and brew your coffee at home or cut back on your training sessions at the gym. However you do it, we understand that even though times are tough you still want to celebrate what is important – life!
