Lapit na mag-Pasko! Ready na ba ang mga gifts for your inaanaks?

The holiday season is a time for joy, celebration, and giving. But Santa’s got nothing on the stress that holiday shopping can bring. With Christmas around the corner, it’s essential to approach your gift shopping with a Budgetarian mindset!


So before you hit the stores or browse your favorite shopping apps, take a moment first to consider all your Christmas expenses!


Aside from gifts for you and your loved ones, isama mo na rin yung mga gagastusin mo for decorations, food, and any additional holiday activities. Planning will help you prioritize your spending and ensure every penny goes to the right place.

Don’t know where to start? We’ve got your back! Let’s ~*sleigh*~ through your Christmas shopping with these budget-friendly hacks:


Set a realistic budget.

The first thing you gotta ask yourself is, “Does your holiday budget pass the vibe check?” Whether you’re planning to cut back on in-store visits or kicking off your gift shopping online, it’s really about prioritizing your spending, making sure every dime knows its place, and ditching any kind of overspending to last you ‘til next year. So be patient and spend a few minutes budgeting your money on a handy app like Lista.


Make a gift list and check it twice.

Grab a cup of coffee (or hot cocoa!) and get cozy with your gift list. Who’s been naughty or nice this year? There’s a reason Santa makes such detailed lists — he’s not just scribbling names, they’re the master plan to ensure holiday shopping is 100% impulse-buy proof and goes smoothly without breaking the bank.


Trust your favorite store’s Top Picks and Best Buys.

Don’t sleep on your favorite apps’ or stores’ recommendations! Just like Santa relies on his trusted list, your go-to retailers have got your back with their curated selections, helping you hoard quality gifts your loved ones will appreciate. So if your fave store gives it a thumbs up, you know you’re on the right track.
