Yes, you need to give the gifts and arrange parties during holidays but make sure you do not overdo your limit. Prepare a proper budget by taking in account the aspects of income and expense. Also, at any cost do not defer from your prepared budget.

Stay away from debt

During the holidays, you need to go through a lot of shopping. You also need to buy the things which are necessary. However, before you set out for shopping remember to put away your credit card.

When you take all cash shopping for holidays, then you cannot buy anymore item other than the listed ones, as the cash will be finished. During the shopping, the use of credit card may seem fine, but the problems will start when, after holidays, you have to pay those debts.

Take a look around and choose those items which are beautiful yet are light in your purse. Also, you can offer to do something for close ones other than spending money on a gift.

    Hello Everyone,
    I am 20 yo and will be financing my first car on my own without a co-sighner. I have been approved for a loan at 6.9% APR through Ford Credit for a $10000 very low miles ford focus. The only thing that the dealer has asked me for was to fax or to bring proof of income. I have a full time job as a delivery for a privately owned pizza place. I make $7 an hour plus tips so I average $500-$600 every two weeks from the actual checks that the owners give me but I cant prove the income coming from tips.All together I make $1000 from paychecks and another $2000-2500 in tips per month. The company doesnt make the drivers claim the tips so there is no way for me to prove it so I can only prove that I make $1000 a month and not the money in tips. Is there anything that I can do to prove my income? I know Quicken has a software to generate pay stubs and checks but I think that would be illegal if I used the companies name. Is there anything that the owners can do to vouch or to give me something that would prove my income? I have 30 days for the finance offer. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

    The CEO of Home Depot was on MSNBC the other day taking about how unions are going to make a huge comeback with President Obama.

    Joe gets up at 6:00am to prepare his morning coffee. He fills his pot full of good clean drinking water because some liberal fought for minimum water quality standards. He takes his daily medication with his first swallow of coffee. His medications are safe to take because some liberal fought to insure their safety and work as advertised.

    All but $10.00 of his medications are paid for by his employers medical plan because some liberal union workers fought their employers for paid medical insurance, now Joe gets it too. He prepares his morning breakfast, bacon and eggs this day. Joe’s bacon is safe to eat because some liberal fought for laws to regulate the meat packing industry.

    Joe takes his morning shower reaching for his shampoo; His bottle is properly labeled with every ingredient and the amount of its contents because some liberal fought for his right to know what he was putting on his body and how much it contained. Joe dresses, walks outside and takes a deep breath. The air he breathes is clean because some tree hugging liberal fought for laws to stop industries from polluting our air. He walks to the subway station for his government subsidized ride to work; it saves him considerable money in parking and transportation fees. You see, some liberal fought for affordable public transportation, which gives everyone the opportunity to be a contributor.

    Joe begins his work day; he has a good job with excellent pay, medicals benefits, retirement, paid holidays and vacation because some liberal union members fought and died for these working standards. Joe’s employer pays these standards because Joe’s employer doesn’t want his employees to call the union. If Joe is hurt on the job or becomes unemployed he’ll get a worker compensation or unemployment check because some liberal didn’t think he should loose his home because of his temporary misfortune.

    Its noon time, Joe needs to make a Bank Deposit so he can pay some bills. Joe’s deposit is federally insured by the FSLIC because some liberal wanted to protect Joe’s money from unscrupulous bankers who ruined the banking system before the depression.

    Joe has to pay his Fannie Mae underwritten Mortgage and his below market federal student loan because some stupid liberal decided that Joe and the government would be better off if he was educated and earned more money over his life-time.

    Joe is home from work, he plans to visit his father this evening at his farm home in the country. He gets in his car for the drive to dads; his car is among the safest in the world because some liberal fought for car safety standards. He arrives at his boyhood home. He was the third generation to live in the house financed by Farmers Home Administration because bankers didn’t want to make rural loans. The house didn’t have electric until some big government liberal stuck his nose where it didn’t belong and demanded rural electrification. (Those rural Republican’s would still be sitting in the dark)

    He is happy to see his dad who is now retired. His dad lives on Social Security and his union pension because some liberal made sure he could take care of himself so Joe wouldn’t have to. After his visit with dad he gets back in his car for the ride home.
    He turns on a radio talk show, the host’s keeps saying that liberals are bad and conservatives are good. (He doesn’t tell Joe that his beloved Republicans have fought against every protection and benefit Joe enjoys throughout his day) Joe agrees, “We don’t need those big government liberals ruining our lives; after all, I’m a self made man who believes everyone should take care of themselves, just like I have”.
