How holiday seasons break your bank balance?
It was I think the last holiday season and the shopping destinations were casting a different impression on my wallet which required some ill-management on my side. Although I was very well prepared to invest wisely that season, I couldn’t stop myself because of, you may say, impulse buying that was stuck with me like my heart. My ex-husband was also interested and planning to buy some latest gadgets which I couldn’t dare to reject – the greatest mistake of mine for the previous holiday season! As soon as I walked across the market lanes, various banners and huge advertisement billboards captivated our attention, ready to grab our money. Since we were not sure how to develop more funds for added substances like home decor, grocery items, gift wrapping and of course; increased burden of jewelry buying; I was supposed to dig my head from where the real debt scenario began.
