As the holiday season approaches, many Americans are turning to holiday spirit to pay their bills.
Here are a few ways to do so.
The Holiday Laundry: While you can still buy items at stores like Amazon or Walgreens, you’re going to need to shop at the grocery store and/or local grocery store chains to make your grocery bill more than $100.
If you’re using a credit card, you’ll need to pay for at least a $2.00 purchase per month.
(You can save a bit of money by paying with a debit card, but if you do it, it’ll cost you more.)
If you want to make it easier to pay by checking, use a credit or debit card and make an appointment with your bank to pay in advance.
You can also pay by cash at an ATM or pay online.
There’s a $15.00 minimum for a laundry day in the United States, and $15 is a minimum for any day of the year in the UK.
(If you pay by check, you should add the required $1.00 to the total.)
If your maid is working on Thanksgiving, make sure she gets paid for work that will be done on Thanksgiving Day.
You could make a few adjustments to your schedule, such as putting the maid on a break after a meal, or you could set a reminder for a particular time.
The $15 minimum is a bit low, but it could still save you some money if you’re saving a lot of money for a holiday.
If you plan on having your maid work the holidays, you can save some money by making sure she does a regular cleaning and washing schedule.
If your household uses a large amount of food, you may need to use more than one of the above tips.
You might also want to check with your local food pantry to see if they have resources available to help with the grocery bills.
If so, make a list of items you’ll be paying for that you can use to make up the difference between what you pay your housekeeper and what you’re paying your maid.
If the housekeeping is important to you, consider making a separate payment to your housekeeping.
Paying the maid in advance is a good way to make sure you have enough money to cover the cost of the household’s needs.
