Happy Friday Breakfast BFF!
I recently had the opportunity to talk with Mercedes Matthew of Life Financial Consulting about some tips for preparing financially for Christmas. Check out this quick interview if you want to keep your coins this Christmas season! #teamkeepacoin
For more practical financial tips, connect with Mercedes on Instagram at @m_matthews7 and @life_financial_consulting.
Great tips! We have 12 to buy for so I try to shop for one person each month throughout the year. This helps pinch my pennies.

I like the idea of doing things that people will appreciate or doing a service – not necessarily getting gifts or spending money. They are practical and efficient tips.
Such great ideas. I’m guilty of procrastinating and I know that ends up costing me $. One thing I do is when I think of a good gift idea during the year, I make a note with a reminder message in my digital calendar, so I get a reminder of what I planned to buy them and I’m not scrambling for ideas, spending $ on items that aren’t the best choice.

Thank you for sharing this. We are really working on teaching our children that material things aren’t the end all be all so I also like the idea of services. Great ideas!
Such good advice for preparing for Christmas! I hate leaving people out but sticking to a prebudgeted list of predetermined gift recipients is a great thing to do. Also, I had never thought to fill my car up on certain days of the week, so I don’t ever run out. That’s such a good idea!
These are very useful tips! Thanks for sharing!!
