• Set a budget for the total amount you are going to be spending during this period
• Try to avoid using your savings
• If you use your business credit card to make these purchases, it is wise to ensure that you pay off the debt as quickly as possible as you may be hit a large sum from interest
• Check your overdraft details, if you overdraw your accounts what will be the repercussion?
• Use your business to get discounts from major stores or brands that you already shop from
• Always hold onto your receipts, you may be able to claim some back during tax time
• Don’t forget to keep a running total for the amount of money spent during this time
