If you have a large expenditure on the horizon (like Christmas holiday spending) you might want to try using a printable savings goal tracker. It’s a fun way to steadily save up for large purchases or expenditures.
How does a Christmas savings tracker work? First, you have to make a Christmas savings plan.
Make a list of all the purchase or expenditures you anticipate making over the Christmas holidays. This could be items Christmas gifts (use our FREE printable gift list budget planner to help with this), Christmas dinner, holiday experiences, a fresh Christmas tree and decorations as an example.
Total everything up and that should help you arrive at how much money you need to save up. Take that total and divide by the number of objects on the printable savings tracker.
Every time you save that amount you get to color in that object. When all the objects are filled in you’ve reached your savings goal. It’s a fun, visual way to see your progress towards your goals. Let’s check out the Christmas tree savings tracker we made to help you!
