A Guide To Smart Spending in December and Beyond

As the year gracefully bows out, December emerges, adorned with festivities and five delightful weekends to spend having fun. Nigerians, known for their love of celebration, eagerly anticipate weekends filled with weddings, anniversaries, and joyous get-togethers. With employers often facilitating the merriment by paying salaries early, the holiday season becomes a time of both joy and financial challenges.

Even if the economic downturn has presented its share of difficulties, there are strategies we can implement to get through these moments and ensure financial security.

Let’s discuss how we can budget wisely this December while reserving something for January 2024.

Craft a Festive Budget

Consider crafting a festive budget to ensure a harmonious celebration and financial discipline blend. Then, identify essential expenses like gifts, travel, and party contributions. Allocate funds wisely, leaving room for unforeseen circumstances without compromising your ‘financial health’.

Early Salary Management

Leverage the early payment of salaries in December to your advantage. Prioritize settling necessary bills and commitments promptly. This proactive approach reduces the possibility of overspending and clarifies the amount of money available for celebrations.

For most of us, January stretches to ’50 days’ instead of the usual 31 days. So, adopt savings techniques to help you get through the post-holiday dip. Consider setting aside a portion of your December income for January expenses. This will ensure a smooth transition into the new year.
