Christmas in the Philippines is often celebrated at the start of the “ber” months. And since it’s already November, we’re barely just over a month away from the most wonderful time of year. This is the time when we write down the names of our loved ones and plan what presents we should buy for them.
We not only need to prepare our wallets for the biggest spending season but our stamina as well to withstand long shopping queues and the Metro Manila traffic.
This infographic from M2.0 Communications offers 11 Clever Ways to Survive Christmas Shopping in the Philippines.

P.S. 5. We will be visiting public schools in Nueva Vizcaya, Davao, Batangas, Rizal, Pangasinan, Iloilo, Cebu, Cagayan de Oro, and the Pag-asa Island in the Kalayaan Group of Islands in the West Philippine Sea to help spread the good news of financial literacy. We are also looking for “student interns/OJT’s” based in Metro Manila and nearby provinces. If you are interested to offer your time, wisdom, and resources to our Filipino students, please join us.
