    I love the idea about saving for Christmas!

      Thanks, Jessica. It has helped a lot to have a separate savings account for things like that. Planning ahead and having money set aside means that there aren’t as many surprises, and that means less stress for me! Have a great day!

    I really enjoyed the monthly savings idea. Even a little bit can save up for something.

  3. I keep telling myself to do a Christmas account and I never get around to it. Ugh. Procrastination and I are sorta pals I guess. Great tips for sure! #Turnituptuesdays

    I use my Christmas fund account for more than just Christmas. I have some annual bills that I pay around that time as well. I just total the annual bills (HOA fees, termite inspection, car insurance, etc.) and add in what I budget to spend on Christmas. I even add in part of our annual vacation expenses into that number. Then I divide it by the number of paychecks I receive in a year and I have that amount automatically put in the Christmas Club account. If I don’t see it I don’t spend it 🙂

      Wonderful idea! I love this; thanks so much for sharing this in the comment section. I feel the same way – if I don’t see it, I don’t spend it. I think having an account like this, to take care of annual bills, is so helpful. Genius! I have used mine for property taxes, etc. It’s such a relief to know I have the money already put away in the bank when the bill(s) show up in the mail. And using it to pay for part of your vacation – even better. Thanks so much, Lauree, for sharing and for dropping by to read and comment. Have a wonderful week! 🙂
