Stress can ruin your holidays, especially if it involves money. Holiday season should be the most wonderful time of the year. Here are a few tips to keep your holiday joyful and lessen your financial stress.
It’s so important to create a holiday budget. Creating a holiday budget is the best way to prevent overspending and lessen the stress through the holidays. Taking time to plan your gifts and organize holiday expenses instead of random and last-minute spending, will save money and lessen stress around over spending.
Cut spending in other areas. Eliminate spending on meals out, movie theater visits, and non-gift related shopping trips. You can also tighten up spending by lowering extra spending on things like morning coffee, lunch out, or even smoking.
Budget your time, budgeting your time can end up saving you tons of money. Allow enough time for all your holiday preparations.
Make peace with your limitations, you must prioritize. We will want to celebrate every holiday to the max and attend every party and send cards and gifts to everyone we know, we can’t. Acknowledging this prior to the holiday season and planning ahead as to what’s most important to you and be okay with letting go of some of the stuff at the bottom of the list.
Holidays are for food, fun and family. Remember that money can’t buy the memories of time spent and memories shared so enjoy each other. Happy Holidays!

Winter weather in Kansas can be unpredictable at times and we want residents to be informed and prepared for the upcoming winter months.
The time to prepare for winter weather is here. To protect your belongings this winter, following these simple steps:
Disconnect hose from all outside water faucets now to help avoid frozen pipes.
If you plan on leaving your home for an extended period of time, keep the heat on to prevent pipes from freezing. Leave your thermostat set between 60 and 65 degrees. We encourage you to consider registering your home for House Watch with your Community Office. When you register your home, the Community team will make a routine check of the property and can take appropriate actions as needed.
Following a snow or ice storm, a Corvias contractor will clear or treat all streets, public sidewalks and parking lots in each community. A system is in place to clear main roads first to allow emergency vehicle access and then proceed to clear all residential streets.
We request your patience and help during the times roadways are being treated by limiting travel. Please park vehicles only in approved parking areas and avoid blocking sidewalks.
Residents are encouraged to keep their private porch, sidewalk and driveway free of snow and ice to avoid slips and falls. Complimentary traction control material will be available at your Community Office.
Applications for the 2018 Corvias Foundation scholarships for children and spouses of active-duty service members are available after November 1 at corviasfoundation.org.
