WAKE UP BUDGET WEEK: Make a Budget for the Holidays, Spend on Memories

Posted: Updated:

WAKE UP NORTHWEST: All week on Wake Up Northwest we are bringing you ways you can save money as we get into the Holidays.

Monday morning we spoke with Jeff Lewis of Lewis Wealth Management. He says, make a budget. Figure out how much money you have on hand to spend and don't go overboard.

He says you don't want to be paying for Christmas for the entire following year,

Lewis recommends carrying cash and avoid using credit. He says layaway can also be risky.

Mostly, Lewis recommends spending on memories instead of things. Take the family on a vacation, something they'll cherish and look back on for years to come.

For more, watch the full segments featured on Wake Up Northwest and tune in the rest of the week for turkey giveaways.
