The Holidays: Expense or Experience
by Angela Ozar, Guest Contributor
“It’s the most wonderful time of the year”— but it can also be the most expensive time of the year.
The holidays are supposed to be a season of joy, peace, and hope; none of which you can purchase on Amazon Prime. Yet, if we are honest with ourselves, most of us spend our time and money during the holidays trying to buy these intangible values disguised in the form of a sweater.
Every November, Americans spend time sharing with family and friends what we are most thankful for, only to turn around the next day, crazed by consumerism, determined to get the best deals on the hottest items for the holidays. How can you stay true to the real hallmarks of the season and avoid selling your soul or emptying your bank account in the process?
