There are many expenses over which we have at least some control. We can pick how often we eat out or go to the movies, we can usually decide when to buy that new motorcycle or iPhone, we can choose when we take a vacation, and we may even be able to put off things like home or auto repairs. But some expenses come around at about the same time every year like clockwork: taxes, back-to-school supplies, and, of course, holiday expenses.
According to a study performed by the American Research Group, the average American spent just over $900 on gifts for friends and loved ones during the 2016 holiday season. And gifts are only one of the many expenses that come with the holidays. Whatever you celebrate during this season, there are gatherings to go to, food and drink to purchase, and often also travel costs to visit family and friends. All those expenses add up, and while some of us begin our holiday shopping earlier in the year, very few of us are entirely prepared for the expenses that come with the holiday season, which may mean getting a little creative with our financing or even getting extra cash for the holidays with title loans.
After all, just one trip over the river and through the woods to Grandmother’s house can set you back quite a bit. Consumer spending and personal finance experts predict that travel during the holiday season, even for just a few days, costs most people a few hundred dollars in transportation expenses, not to mention the price of food (another $150 or so for car snacks or meals on the road), entertainment, and lodging if you’re not planning on bunking at Grandma’s house. If you’re making the rounds and visiting more than one side of the family, the costs can go up even higher.
Of course, all of these expenses are absolutely worth it. The holidays can be an unforgettable time to spend with friends and family and a wonderful experience that children of all ages will never forget. But what do we do when holiday expenses become too much for the household budget?
