We all tend to spend more money during the holiday season, and this year will likely be no different.
For many of us, shopping often starts around Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday, which means we should have some savings ready by November (or earlier) if we don’t want to scramble last minute.
Special savings accounts, like Christmas Club Accounts, can be a big help in automatically contributing to your holiday budget all year long. It’s also a good idea to keep an eye out for special offers and sales that can save you a ton when it comes to discounts, free shipping and more.
