Holiday Tips from Vawter Financial

Gary Vawter |

It’s that time of year again! Spending time with your loved ones and time to do a little holiday shopping or a lot of holiday shopping, but where do you even begin?

First, it might be helpful to ask yourself a few questions before you start.

  • What kind of shopper are you?
    • Do you start months in advance or do you wait until the last minute?
  • Who’s on your list?
    • Are you on the list?
  • What supplies do you need?
    • Do you wrap or leave unwrapped?
  • How do you plan to pay for everything?
    • Cash or credit card?

And the most important question you need to ask yourself is, Do You Have a Budget?

Wow, seems like a lot to think about but don’t let it stress you out. We found a few good articles that will help keep your gift-giving in check this year.  At Vawter Financial, we wish you a happy holiday!
