Gail Vaz-Oxlade's tips on how to stick to a budget over Christmas!

I love Gail Vaz-Oxlade from the TV shows Til Debt Do Us Part and Princess.  She knows what she's talking about when it comes to your finances.  She's a financial writer and author of the book Money Moron.

Here are some of her tips to get us through the holidays so we don't over spend on Christmas presents:

Make a list and check it twice

Make a list of names of who you're buying for and what the budget is for each person.

Use the most effective form of payment - some credit cards come with safety features like insurance so if something is lost or stolen before given for Christmas they can be replaced. 

Make sure to keep a running total of what you're spending so you don't go over budget. 

Protect your pin info.
