During the holiday season it’s impossible to not spend any money. On top of paying bills there’s gift shopping, getting warmer clothes and buying groceries for family dinner. Whatever the case may be, it’s a new year and it’s time to get your finances back on track! Keep reading to learn 5 easy ways to bounce back from overspending during the holidays.
 
Create a Budget
You’ve just spent a ton of money, now it’s time to re-look at your finances. The easiest way to get back on track is to simply create a monthly budget. If this is something you are not used to following, start by creating a weekly budget instead. Calculate your necessary expenses, like rent or mortgage, bills, gas, and food, then go from there. Figure out how much you would like to save each month then factor in extras like money for entertainment and the unexpected expenses like emergency repairs.
 
Sell Items for Cash
Did you receive gifts during the holidays that you haven’t found a use for? Instead of throwing them out or having them sit in a corner, return them or sell them for extra cash. Try selling on Facebook Marketplace or even host your own garage sale once the weather warms up.
 
Start a Side Hustle
If you have some extra time after work, consider trying side hustle, like walking dogs or delivering food. You can even turn a hobby you enjoy doing into a side business. Do you love baking? Knitting blankets? Watching dogs? The extra cash will get you back on track!
 
Stick to a Plan
It’s easy to say you’re going to do better with your finances after the holidays but the only way for you to recover from overspending is by sticking to your plan. Whether that means following your budget and not ordering out, or choosing to walk places instead of driving your car or using a rideshare service.
