Welcome to Christmas Eve the last day of Advent, and this final box in our Personal Finance Advent Calendar holds a bunch of Loonies, which seems like a good way to end this calendar.
These Loonies signify the importance some people put in money and how they work for it, but maybe it’s time to get your money to work for you and not have money run your life?
Look at all of that money in that box, but wait if you look closer, they aren’t actually Loonies at all, they are actually foil covered chocolate money.
As a child I really enjoyed the surprises my mother used to put in my stocking for Christmas morning and my wife continues this tradition in our family as well, and I always enjoyed the chocolate gold coins. When I was younger these sweets were more important to me than real money, maybe that is a good thing?
Make your money work for you, and don’t be a slave to your money.
With a good Financial Plan and a good budget money can be a tool and not your master, remember that this time of the year.
Remember in these times Thrift is the new Chic!
