#106: Christmas as a Money Coach – What I Give and Ask For

Happy Holidays!

Have you ever wondered what a money coach gives and asks for Christmas?

Well, you’ll learn today! While I love every holiday following the Fall season, Christmas holds a special place in my heart.

Growing up, it was a time of the year that brought so much joy – not because of the gifts, but just the energy from that time of year.

I would sit at home, alone, watching Christmas cartoons, just sitting next to the lit-up Christmas tree and would feel pure bliss.

As an adult, I still feel bliss sitting next to the tree!

In this episode, I’m sharing what Christmas is like as a money coach – the things I give and what I usually ask for.

Here’s a glance at this episode:

  • [01:35] If you’re listening to the episode right when it airs, then Merry Christmas! Raya is wishing you a wonderful holiday season!
  • [03:37] As Raya got older, she started putting more thought into the gifts she would give. The focus would be on things people needed or that reminded her of them.
  • [06:03] There was a time, specifically college years, where Raya would constantly exceed her spending limit for Christmas, but mostly on buying herself material things.
  • [09:04] A rule of thumb in Raya’s family for spending money on Christmas gifts is to stay within $100 per person for gifts.
  • [11:33] Raya always asks for Starbucks gift cards for Christmas, because it’s money well spent and will help her stick to the budget during the start of the year.
