How to Enjoy a Debt-Free Holiday
The holidays are coming up! As much as these celebrations bring us joy and harmony, they can also bring us stress. This is particularly true when it comes to your finances! However, don’t lose hope that this will be another draining year on your pocketbook. In fact, with a little planning, there are a few ways you can make sure your holidays are stress and credit-free.
Manage Your Expectations
Did you find the holidays refreshing last year, or were they somewhat draining and you’re still trying to figure out how to pay off your credit card bills? If you are someone that wants your holidays to be energizing and provide that feeling of togetherness, there is more to it than just spending money. Once you decide your expectations, it becomes easier to work towards things that create that result.
Determine Your Holiday Goals
Are you looking to plan an extravagant black-tie party or have a more low-key celebration? Maybe you just want to hang out with lots of family and friends and enjoy some good food? Or maybe you usually get away and are finding yourself homebound this year. No matter how you normally spend your holidays, sharing your thoughts with family will help determine your goals and come to a decision that works for everyone!
Create a Budget
Once you have decided your expectations and goals for the holiday, it is time to create your budget. A little planning can go a long way to creating a credit-free holiday, and will help you spread out the costs. The first step is to create a list of everything you need, from individual gifts to decorations to baking ingredients and meal items to clothing!
Early planning can make all the difference when it comes to the holidays. Instead of lumping your entire budget into a couple paychecks, try keeping an eye out for gift ideas and cute decor all year long. While it may be too late this year, it could be a good strategy to try for 2021! Starting early will help reduce stress and give you more opportunities to scoop up incredible deals throughout the year, which means you can spread your budget even farther!
While I know many of us try to do everything during the holidays so our families can just enjoy themselves, it is important to remember that the holidays are a time when we are supposed to support each other, and celebrate together! If you are hosting a dinner this year, don’t be afraid to ask your family to bring appetizers or drinks. If you are buying gifts for friends, set a limit or challenge everyone to make something by hand! Homemade gifts can often feel more special and it creates a fun exchange for you and your friends. There are many incredible ways to reduce stress and help get others involved so that the holiday is perfect for everyone.
It is easy to get caught up in the consumerism and expectations of the holidays. Is dinner perfect? Did you buy enough gifts? Did you invite everyone? Is everyone happy? But don’t forget yourself in your efforts to please others.
Even though the holidays can feel hectic, it is important to celebrate YOU and be grateful for what you have - even if you weren’t able to check off all the boxes. Life happens, but the most important thing is that we celebrate when we can.
The holiday is YOURS, so make sure you spend it whichever way brings you the most joy - and the least amount of stress on your pocketbook.

If so, there’s a very good chance you still have some warranty coverage. That’s because the standard warranty on new homes in Ontario stays with every home even after it’s sold by the original owner.
Knowing how much coverage you have and how the warranty works will come in handy if you notice any issues. Read on for answers to the most commonly asked questions by buyers of resale homes that are still under warranty.
How do I find out if my home still has a warranty?
With the online Ontario Builder Directory, it’s easy to figure out if your home is enrolled in the province’s warranty program. Enter the address on the Tarion website, the private corporation set up by the Ontario government to administer the new home warranty program. It only takes a few moments to determine if your home is covered and how much warranty is left.
How do I transfer the warranty to my name?
If you want to take advantage of remaining warranty coverage, provide the home warranty administrator with a copy of your purchase agreement. As soon as your name is on file as the current owner, you’re good to go. You can even register online to submit claims and access your home’s warranty history.
What does the warranty cover?
Ontario’s new home warranty is broken down into one-, two- and seven-year coverages. The one-year warranty is a comprehensive warranty that covers general defects in work and materials. The two-year warranty covers the following: defects in your home’s plumbing; electrical and heating systems; water penetration through the foundation or other parts of your home; defects related to exterior cladding; and, Ontario Building Code violations that affect health and safety. Finally, the seven-year warranty provides coverage against major structural defects.
Whether you have one, two, or more years left in your coverage, make the most of it. Find more information at tarion.com.

Just south of Reunion Crossing, Bloor Station offers residents access to GO Transit and the Union Pearson Express. Both are excellent options for getting into the city and getting out to discover the world. Travel to Union Station in as little as 11 minutes, or head to Pearson International Airport in about 20 minutes. Two amazing options to get literally anywhere you want to go! There are also plans to open a future SmartTrack GO station even closer to home right at the southeast corner of St. Clair West and Old Weston, which will make it even easier to travel across the region!
Travel north from Reunion Crossing for an easy connection to Hwys. 401 and 400 just up Black Creek Drive. This is some of the most convenient highway access in the city, providing effortless connections to many of the GTA's top destinations.
Head south down Old Weston Road and you'll soon find access to some of the best biking infrastructure in the city. Options here include traveling along the West Toronto Railpath from Osler St. just south of St. Clair all the way south to Dundas Street. Heading east? Take the Davenport Bike Lane right into The Annex, with easy connections to additional bike lanes throughout the downtown core.
