Holiday Spending and the Common Cents Approach

holiday savings spending

We plan and budget throughout the year, and the holidays go and throw snowballs at us. And let’s face it – with the holiday season looming over us, many Canadians are feeling the inevitable burden of bills and the need to save. In Fact, 1 in 3 (31%) Canadians identify November as being a month their budgets get derailed due to unforeseen holiday spending.

To help Canadians overcome financial anxiety, Canada’s self-proclaimed ‘money-honey’, Gail Vaz-Oxlade, launched ‘Use Your Common Cents Day’ on November 4th to educate Canadians on better budgeting and financial literacy. Her mission is to empower Canadians to use their common sense when it comes to everyday spending.

Visit for helpful tips and advice from Gail on how to gear-up for successful savings. You can also join over 1 million Canadians and register to have access to print-at-home coupons on top brands, exclusive samples and daily inspiration every day of the year!
