Get Productive This Holiday: Have a pre-NUPP

Can you create memories rather than give gifts this season?My fabulous friend Karen Roy shared this fun, money-saving blog with me today and I wanted to share it with you all too.

The holidays means investing SO MUCH time and energy in gifts and gift giving. You may recall previous holiday seasons where I have encouraged people to consider a lean holiday (see video here).

Neen James Shares how to have a lean, productive holiday season

This blog caught my attention for the one line ‘It should be about Christmas presents, not paying for Christmas past’.

This season can you have a pre-NUPP with your friends – which stands for No Unnecessary Present Pact ?

Don’t get me wrong… I LOVE gifts! I love selecting them for those I care about and I love receiving them however maybe this season you could agree with those you care about that you would rather create a memory or experience than exchange a gift.

My girlfriends and I have different traditions, one of my friends and I make a trip to New York each year to celebrate; another set of girlfriends includes High Tea at the Four Seasons. What traditions could you start with those you care about?

What are your ideas on how you can make this holiday season more stress free and impactful? Share your ideas with us here on our blog.
