How do you fit back to back festival finances into your month budget?Festivals are signs of good times, although most may not have financial issues, some of us (especially salaried class who get taxed to the extent possible by the government and every seller we buy from) may find it difficult to allocate money for back to back festivals.
For instance, Ganesh Chaturthi, Dasara just passed by, we have Diwali on 18th October which is a major festival and 2-3 weeks of school holidays before the new year. The purchasing power of the rupee is not very much, it's difficult to stretch the rupee, a box of decent sweets are around Rs 600.00. then clothes, festival pooja items, gifts for near and dear ones. travel expenses etc.
How does one do it?
