December Here You Come !
What comes to your mind when December was coming? This month is so special right? A lot of people are preparing for this season, some are doing their list by now, who and what gift is best to give for their loved ones. Some are thinking about what to prepare for that occasion, because after celebrating Christmas here comes the New Year, another occasion that we all celebrates.
But we can't hide it that there were some who are worrying too much about this month, because in this month "expenses are expected". Do you get what I mean? Do you believe that, even the practical mom got worried when this month of December comes? Even if bonuses or what we called 13th month pay was expected, still our moms get worried about how to budget all, especially if we are living in a middle class or in a family that has low income. Like me, I have my own family and relatives who are coming when this occasion comes. I see to it that I have something for them even if it's a simple gift. I set aside small amount everyday, I put it inside of a box, for this occasion. Sometimes, when I saw sales in the market, I tried to look for something that fits my budget, buying early gift can save us more too, then I'll just keep it first then pack it when occasion was coming. We can't avoid to gift-giving when Christmas and New Year was coming, right? And I believe in saying, "It's better to give than to receive" and the "true spirit of this season is to give love not only with that day but it should be everyday" it's all up to us how we are going to show love, right?
Now, I need your help and advise my dear friends here at bloggers, maybe we can share some tips for our moms who are in this case, like me..:) What can you suggest to our dearest moms about this coming of December? How they can overcome the worries in budgeting?
