Christmas is fast approaching, and everyone’s busy planning for office parties and family reunions. For Filipinos living or working abroad, the holiday excitement is building up as they count the days until their much-awaited homecoming to celebrate with their loved ones.
As we enjoy the season, expenses are inevitable. So, if you’re an overseas Filipino worker, you might want to put the brakes on spending your hard-earned money this Christmas season. While it’s OK to give your family a holiday treat, it’s practical to think of the consequences that lavish spending could do in your life.
As the breadwinner of your family, you should not only be concerned with earning for your loved ones, but also saving for your future as early as you can. You don’t want to end up being an OFW for a longer time than you want to (which could mean missing more occasions in the future).
Enjoy the Christmas season with your loved ones while being vigilant about spending. Follow these tips on how to manage your hard-earned money during the holidays.
