How To Survive The Holidays During Bankruptcy

Are you considering bankruptcy? With the holidays approaching, many people wonder if they should wait until after the holidays to file for bankruptcy. Going through the bankruptcy process can make the holidays even more stressful than they already are. On the one hand, you may want to put it off until the New Year. On the other hand, the longer you wait, the fewer options you may have, such as filing for a consumer proposal instead.

The bankruptcy trustees, now known as Licensed Insolvency Trustees, on the David Sklar and Associates team can help answer your questions. Here are some of the things you should be aware of about going through bankruptcy during the holidays.

#1 Travelling for the Holidays

Whether it’s to visit family or join your family on a vacation, travel is a common part of the holidays. One thing you should be aware if you file for bankruptcy before the holidays is that you have to be available to your bankruptcy trustee. However, if your travel does not interfere with this, it won’t be an issue. You also won’t have access to any credit cards, so it may be difficult to book a plane ticket. Find out more bankruptcy information like this from your bankruptcy trustee.

#2 Budget for the Holidays

Even if you aren’t currently going through the bankruptcy process, budgeting for the holidays is the most responsible way to get through the season without breaking the bank. A smart financial plan can help you enjoy the holidays stress-free. Money is one of the leading causes of stress over the holidays. Planning out your budget within your means in advance can relieve that stress and leave you free to enjoy time with your family.

#3 Do Secret Santa

Gifts are one of the most expensive parts of the holidays. Instead of buying a gift for everyone in your family, do a Secret Santa, especially if your kids are grown up now. That way everyone is only responsible for buying one gift. Not only will you save money, but everyone else will as well.

#4 Share Cooking Responsibilities

Grocery bills can spiral out of control during the holidays. If your family spreads out the responsibilities for both shopping and cooking, everyone can save time and money.

#5 Use a Secured Credit Card

Rebuilding your credit rating is an important part of recovering from bankruptcy. When you take credit counselling with David Sklar and Associates, rebuilding your credit is something we focus on. One easy way to get started is with a secured credit card. With this type of credit card, you make a deposit on the credit card before borrowing.

Don’t wait before looking for personal bankruptcy services if you need them. There may be other options available to you now that won’t be down the line, including consumer proposals. The insolvency process doesn’t have to hang over your head during the holidays. Talk to a bankruptcy trustee who cares about your success and can help you rebuild your life.
