You open today’s box, and there is a tiny new pair of shoes, which of course, in Canada means a Budget. Advent is an excellent time to think about writing a budget for next year. You can start your financial plan for next year. In some homes, Budget is a dirty word, but it is an essential tool if you feel your spending is out of control. Even if you don’t keep the budget exactly, it is still a way to measure your success financially.
Budget in Advent for the New Year. Get a good start on the new financial year.
