Simplify Your Holidays – Tip #6

Do you get caught up in spending too much for gifts? We have been conditioned to think that the price of a gift shows the person how much we love them. It’s time to rethink the idea of “expensive” gifts equals more love.

The easiest way to change this kind of thinking is to have a family meeting and set a limit on how much anyone should spend on one another. This idea can apply to friends or co-workers as well. This will help you plan out your budget and stay within it.

Setting limits on how much is spent per gift/person will eliminate the competition for who loves someone more. You won’t get stressed out and go broke trying to show your love.

Time is more precious than gold. Giving the gift of your time shows more love than any material gift can.
