5 Ways to avoid holiday debt

Rounding it up

  • Turns out you can shower your friends and family with gifts sans stacking up debt. Start by creating your budget early and saving accordingly.

  • Next, make a shopping list so you’re less likely to buy things you don’t need, and monitor your spending.

  • Use a prepaid credit card so you can only spend a preloaded amount. Some cards offer cash back, so take advantage of those.

  • Consider hand-made gifts — both the recipients and your wallet will appreciate them.
