Why Does October Matter Financially?
I read a fascinating article on how what we do now, in October, influences our financial matters for the next few months. Have you planned for Christmas? We have put aside $400 for our five children and other little gifts at work, etc. We give our children three gifts each and a really fun stocking.
I look at it this way: I will not be dragged down in our race to become debt free by lack of planning on my part. If I'm able to add that element of competition I always seem to do better with my goals because I hate to lose! We've been losers with our money too long, and winning with it for the past 11 months is a habit I'll keep. How's your Christmas fund coming along? Do you save throughout the year or take a chunk and set it aside when you have it?
