KNOXVILLE, TN, January 16, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- It's easy to overindulge during the holiday season. Good, rich foods abound with sumptuous desserts and drinks all around - and since the holidays only come once a year, it's not hard to justify excessive consumption. But racking up holiday debt is another matter. You could end up paying for your current purchases all the way to the next holiday season, when the vicious cycle begins anew.
Avoiding Debt During the Holidays
Knoxville bankruptcy lawyers Clark & Washington advise setting a realistic budget for your holiday spending. Make a list and stick to it and avoid impulse buying by leaving your credit cards at home when you go shopping.
Go to stores an hour or so before closing so you don't have time to shop around. When you know you only have an hour to do your shopping, you have less of a tendency to look around and end up buying items that are not on your original list.
If you can, make rather than buy gifts for your friends and family (an afternoon of baby-sitting for your neighbor with three young children for example). Your gift of time would be deeply appreciated, plus it does not show up on your credit card bill the following month.
