The Savvy Guide to December


Oh the weather outside is frightful. But your family is soooo delightful. (We mean the extendo family.)
Don’t fret the frightful—this is one of the best months of the year! Here are some reminders to make the most out of December—whether your family is delightful or not.

Stay warm, safe and merry!

To Vancouver’s new hands-on mosaic studio, Broken by Design and craft a shimmering ornament with your child (16th and Main).
Why? Your family will be creating one-of-a-kind gifts in no time (and with no mess to clean up afterwards!)

Get your RESP contribution in by the end of the month.
Why? Because the deadline is the end of December—not February (that’s RRSPs)! You do care about your kid’s education, right?

More information is available from the Ontario Securities Commission, and don’t forget about the SavvyMom program with Futura Rewards.

Something for yourself-a facial, a manicure or a new scarf to stay warm. Just treat yourself.
Why? Because you deserve it, oh keeper of the list(s).

Holiday music that everyone will enjoy. Try Ella Wishes You a Swinging Christmas Or A Charlie Brown Christmas by the Vince Guaraldi Trio
Why? ‘Tis the season (and it’s better than Barney)!

Drop off some baby food, formula or diapers for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society’s Basics for Babies program at Save On Foods locations.
Why? Because every baby deserves a healthy start.
