I bet you’re excited to receive your 13th month pay or Christmas bonus. You’re probably thinking of budgeting it to buy Christmas gifts, eat at the newest restaurants you’ve been dying to try since October, or watch all those Christmas movies with your family. Right?
And then the inevitable happens. Before New Year, you’re good as broke again.
Yes, you might feel a certain fulfillment when you’ve got all that extra cash on hand, but think about the feelings and consequences you’ll have come January.
