There’s No Place Like Home for the Holidays

Cost-saving tips to help keep your holiday season stress-free

The holiday season is upon us, bringing with it snow and winter (albeit generally milder in the Okanagan than

the rest of the country). It is a time to gather with family and friends to revel in peace and joy. However, for many there are large amounts of financial pressure during the month of December that can put a damper on your celebration. Here are some cost-saving tips to maximize your holiday fun while minimizing the hit to your wallet:

Get outdoors for cheap fun: The Okanagan boasts many free or inexpensive outdoor winter activities. There’s Stuart Park and other free skating rinks, hills to sled like the great spot just before Crystal Mountain (complete with fire pit) and many great trails to hike. And if you find you don’t have the energy for that level of activity, Castanet.net and other sites feature great Christmas lights tours that can be done from the warmth of your vehicle.

No-cost energy-saving tips for your home: As the temperature drops, your heating bill can skyrocket. Some ideas to save money that won’t cost you a cent include: wearing a sweater when at home, piling on the quilts to turn down the heat when you go to bed, washing all except your dirtiest laundry in cold water and only running your dishwasher when it’s full. FortisBC.com contains many more no and low-cost energy saving tips and rebates.

Form a baking co-op: Instead of spending the money on the ingredients necessary to produce a wide variety of Christmas baking, call up your friends to form a baking co-op. If you can gather 8 like-minded people, then you each bake eight batches of one thing. Then you all meet up to exchange baking, giving you eight different batches of Christmas cheer and you’ll save money because you can buy all your ingredients in bulk.
