Just as Memorial Day marks the beginning of summer, Labor Day marks its end. While the grill is extinguished, the pool is closed, and your schedule is at the mercy of your child’s school activities, the Fall brings its own festivities. Whether these activities are relaxing or not depends on who you ask. There is one thing everyone agrees on: the Holiday Season isn’t cheap.
Between Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve, money is going to be spent somewhere. Even if you don’t go all out on Halloween decorations, or open your kitchen to your extended family during Thanksgiving, just one holiday done up right can put a dent in your wallet. According to trends observed by The Balance, Halloween is technically the cheapest holiday Americans celebrate. Even so, a record amount of $8.4 million was spent by US consumers last year, with each individual shopper spending $83 on candy, costumes, and decorations.
Not at all scary compared to the price tag of Black Friday. While it’s technically not a holiday, its emphasis on seasonal deals has made it the number one holiday season event. In fact, it’s expected that around $320 on average will be spent during this weekend per person. And while the largest total amount of holiday spending is conducted on shopping holidays like Black Friday and Cyber Monday, nothing trumps the grand total a person will spend solely on Christmas: $752!
Of course, the holidays don’t always have to be so costly. New Year’s Eve, for example, can be just as festive as Thanksgiving or Christmas, but at a more reasonable price. Crates of champagne can be bought at a discount, appetizers will cut down on the grocery bill as well as kitchen time, and party favors can be as simple as kitschy items like hats and noisemakers from the dollar store!
Whether you decide to splurge on all or none of the holidays, spending a little bit on the season can still be hard to avoid. When the bank is flush, that’s no biggie, but when money is tight, a small gesture of holiday spirit can plunge your budget into the red. To avoid any holiday spending pitfalls, you may have to get creative with your funds and consider some ways to find the quick cash you need. Car title loans in Memphis are an excellent option.
