For many of us, the holiday season can be a stressful time and our budgets can become tighter than normal.
Finding time to workout during this busy time with all the holiday travel, holiday meals, purchasing presents for friends and family is tough. For tips on finding time to take care of yourself, you can check out my previous blog
I don’t want you to stress about money this year. Here are a few tips that can help save money and give your budget a new freedom.
Ditch the gym membership, Use Beachbody
How does a few extra bucks a month sound? Instead of throwing money at a gym membership that you cannot find the time to use each month, you can invest in a Beachbody program that will get you fit from the comfort of your own home.
Beachbody has a wide array of programs that are cost efficient and can give you a powerful workout day in and day out for a one-time payment. Health is a great gift and for less than $10 a month you and your love ones can workout out together in person or virtually with our livestreaming programs.
Now save yourself some travel time, gas money, and excuses and put that former gym membership monthly fee somewhere else where it can be used more effectively during the holiday season and the rest of the year too! 😉
Shakeology can help you be more budget friendly and trim your body into shape. For an average of about $4.00 per day, which is much cheaper than just about any meal, and cheaper than a fancy drink from your local coffee shop.
You can spend less and get a healthy superfood packed shake. Saving a couple extra dollars a day may not sound like much, but it quickly adds up. Imagine having an extra $365.00 a year and giving your body a boost that will pay off as much as the financial savings.
Plan Your Meals
Time can also be at a premium during the holidays. Planning your meals ahead of time can be cost effective and allow you to be efficient with your time. Finding a program such as 21 Day Fix that gives you the outline to plan each meal of your day creates a healthy nutritional balance while helping you save money on buying excess foods.
Whether you cook for a week in advance or a little extra like I do, pack last nights dinner for tomorrow’s lunch. I love these bento boxes. They are great, lightweight, and reusable.
This holiday season, try to think ahead about what you are going to put in your body, and reap the rewards both financially and nutritionally.
Take it a step further and create a stash account and put your savings away. I also like to use an app called Digit. Digit is a free savings app. If you struggle with saving money and have no idea where to start, this is for you. It’s a very safe app. I’ve been using it for a while and with ease I am able to save an extra $100 a month that I would have normally spent. Digit monitors your spending habits and uses an algorithm to transfer small amounts of money into your separate savings account based upon your behavior. You link it to your bank account and monitor everything from your cell phone. You can monitor your daily balance as well as your spending. What’s great is that it tells you what’s available in your account. The customer service is impeccable. I really love this app. Click the link to learn more and Start Saving With Digit for free.
Until Next Time,
