However, it’s not too late to learn about the benefits of achieving debt relief, aside from the fact that it does make our debts go away. That’s right, achieving “debt relief” is not just a status that means we don’t have any debt. It can actually help us improve on a lot of things, such as our credit.

Coping With A Financially Wounding Christmas


Christmas arrives in one week. This can be a wonderful emotional prospect, but a worrying financial one. You might find that the common yearly habit is to overspend because, well, the event only comes around once a year. Sometimes acquiring the items you truly want to gift your family, and purchasing the feast ingredients can take more of a hit to your finances than you realized.

If you’ve recognized that your finances are to be heavily wounded during this time, the prospect of January can look relatively scary. Coping with a deeply expensive Christmas requires you to enter a form of budget-survival mode. There’s a reason why so many sales take place at this time of year. Companies know that people are wiped out financially, and selling unsold stock for cheap is better than no sales at all.

It’s stressful and fantastic all at once. And on Christmas Day when the food has been eaten, the crackers pulled, and the gifts opened, all of it feels worth it. But next year you will be cursing the same ‘emergencies’ all over again. Of course, there are some emergencies that often occur at this time of year, that really are emergencies, and the missing brussel sprouts, and unfortunately turkey to gravy ratio doesn’t make that list.

Chloe and Zoey get SOOoo excited any time I return home, and because I am home with them pretty much all the time they’re very attached to me!!  They love me unconditionally, and now that my girls are all grown up I enjoy babying and spoiling my puppies!!  They love to get mail, and think that every package that comes to the door should be for them!!  Bark Box is a great way to do that!!
