Start saving for Christmas now

Start saving for Christmas now

Did you know that there are only 5 more paydays before Christmas? (Not including anyone being paid this week.)

Although it sounds like a lot of time, it will soon come around! If you haven't started saving up a few months before, you may find that it's a financial struggle when we get to December.

Putting away a little bit each month from now until December will help to ensure the festive season is an enjoyable one, rather than extremely stressful.

Here are some reasons it's a good idea to start saving now.

Less financial strain

By starting early, you spread the cost of Christmas expenses over several months rather than cramming it into a single pay period. This reduces the financial strain during the holiday season.

Manageable savings

Saving a small amount each month from July onwards is more manageable and less noticeable in your budget compared to saving a large sum in November or December.

Avoiding debt

Many people resort to using credit cards for holiday shopping, leading to debt that can take months to pay off. By saving in advance, you can avoid accumulating high-interest fees and getting yourself into financial difficulty.

Interest savings

Paying for Christmas expenses out of savings instead of credit can save you money on interest payments.

Better budgeting

Starting early allows you to set a realistic budget and stick to it, reducing the likelihood of overspending.

Financial planning

You can plan your holiday expenses better, including gifts, decorations, travel, and events, without having to cut back on other necessities.

Peace of mind

Knowing that you have money set aside for Christmas can reduce stress and help you enjoy the holiday season more.

Avoiding last-minute rush

Early planning and saving reduce the need for last-minute shopping, which can be both stressful and expensive.

Making the most of sales

By starting early, you can take advantage of sales throughout the year, including Black Friday and other pre-Christmas sales, rather than being forced to buy at peak prices in December.

Off-season discounts

Purchasing items like decorations or non-perishable gifts during off-season sales can result in significant savings.

Building good financial habits

Regularly setting aside money for specific goals helps build disciplined saving habits.

Financial Awareness

Early and consistent saving encourages greater financial awareness and planning skills.


Saving early gives you more flexibility to handle unexpected expenses that may arise closer to the holiday season.

Change of plans

If your holiday plans change, having saved money early provides more options without financial stress.

Starting to save for Christmas in July ensures you are financially prepared, reduces stress, and allows you to make the most of holiday sales and deals.

It’s a proactive approach to holiday spending that can lead to a more enjoyable and financially sound holiday season.
