Holla PAL, we bet you’re excited about the upcoming holidays

Despite the recession, there’s no reason you shouldn’t have the best time of your life this Christmas. Here are some ways to get the best out of it.

Take advantage of sales and discounts: The last two months of every year are the best month for purchases because that’s when lots of stores and businesses give out discounts and do sales. So, get with the program ASAP and be on the lookout for sales and discounts, you’ll definitely have some money left over for savings.

Have fun with friends: Oh yes, not only does hanging out with friends mean extra fun time, it also means less spending because you and your friends get to share the bills thereby reducing individual spendings. For example, you can share cab fares to events and fun spots with 3 or 4 of your friends.

Improvise: As the saying necessity is the mother of invention goes, it is necessary to invent new and cheap ways of doing things now. You can use cardboards and paper clips and old Christmas lights to decorate your apartment instead of going all out to buy new items.

Go have yourself a very merry Christmas PAL!
