Be Thankful about Becoming Debt Free

Consolidated Credit’s Thankful Photo Contest offers clients a chance to win $250.

The holidays are a joyous time of year, but it’s also the most expensive shopping season for most consumers. Estimates show that the average household is set to spend $1,048 this year.[1] That’s enough to set any budget back, but it can be especially hard for people working to get out of debt.

“It can be easy to give into the spirit of buy-buy-buy that retailers are promoting everywhere right now,” says April Lewis-Parks, Education Director for Consolidated Credit. “But if you can’t take on credit card debt this year, how do you get through the holidays? The answer lies in focusing on things that aren’t material, like what you have to be thankful for.”

With that in mind, Consolidated Credit started our Thankful Photo Contest. It encourages clients who are on a debt management to be thankful for beginning their journey to become debt-free.

“We hope that this will help people focus on the feeling of becoming debt-free,” Parks explains. “It’s a phenomenal weight that gets lifted off your shoulders when you don’t have the constant stress of credit card debt. This contest helps clients focus on that. Plus, the $250 can be a nice boost to your holiday budget when you aren’t using your credit cards for holiday shopping.”
