Imagine the bliss you’ll feel sailing into 2021 without a massive credit-card bill nipping at your heels the second or third week of January.
There are alternative ways to pay for the holidays that can keep you out of debt, or from taking on more. Here are a few.
Purge to pay for Christmas
I’m obsessed with purging — Marie Kondo style — and that’s because it feels good to say goodbye to things that are no longer serving me, and to welcome money from the sale of these items into my budget.
I raised $200 in cash by selling some older computer equipment and microphone just last week. Next on my list is my wedding veil (purchased second hand, with the original Kleinfeld price tag on it), and as it was such a steal, I hope to get what I paid for it.
