Saving for the Holidays!

Oh, the holidays! It’s a time for giving, joy, and spending time with the ones that you love. Sometimes, the giving part can be a little more difficult that people would suspect. What do you do if your wallet is wearing thin, but you want to get everyone a great gift? We’ve got the answer for you!

  1. Start your shopping months in advance. Many times we don’t think about the holiday season in the warmer months of the year. We’re more worried about getting those last summer projects done and having fun in the sun. However, if you start shopping earlier, you will be spreading out your holiday spending so your bank account isn’t taking the hit all at once.
  2. Who do you really need to shop for? If you’re anything like me, you may want to shop for anyone and everyone in your life. If you simply can’t afford this, don’t feel obligated to! Write down the most important people in your life like your significant other, your parents, siblings, etc. Then, think about those who really make an impact on your life. Is it your best friend or that neighbor who mows your lawn in the summer? This will help you realistically decide who you want to get a gift for.
  3. How much do I spend on who? After determining who you’re buying for, now decide how much you are going to spend on them. You may spend $100 on your spouse, and $50 on your parents. You certainly don’t have to spend the same amount on each person!
  4. Give yourself a budget. If you don’t give yourself a limit, you could spend more than you can afford. Approximately 13.6 million American’s are still in debt because of last year’s Christmas spending! Don’t let that be you. Determine how much you have to spend on your loved ones, and stick to that budget limit. If your limit is very small, DIY gifts are great too! Some people appreciate handmade gifts more because they come from the heart.
  5. Write it down! Get a list of everyone you’re buying for and put down what you plan on getting them. This will help you see what you need to get and if the items are realistic for your budget. If not, reconsider.

Holiday shopping can be stressful, but with these tips you’ll be on your way to have a smooth and debt free holiday this year. Remember that Christmas isn’t all about giving gifts! Enjoy time with your family, be kind to others, and celebrate the holiday season!

Pinhook Flats and CUE at Aksarben Village Food Drive

Pinhook Flats and CUE at Aksarben Village and the rest of the Robert Hancock & Co apartment communities are proud to be supporting the Food Bank of the Heartland this holiday season. It no doubt goes without saying that this is a truly unprecedented year, and the amount of need in our community is greater than it has ever been. We hope that those of you who are looking for ways to help and have the means to do so will help us in supporting this great cause!

Last week we collected cereal and breakfast items and we are very grateful for all that you were able to give. This week we are collecting peanut butter and jelly and next week we will be collecting pasta, spaghetti sauce and macaroni and cheese items. Of course, if you have extra canned goods or other food items you wish to contribute, we will be happy to collect those for you as well. Donations can be made at both the Leasing Office at Pinhook Flats or in the lobby at CUE.

We are very thankful for all of you who make our apartment community truly special and unique. Thank you for continuing to be diligent about wearing masks outside your apartments in accordance with the Omaha Mask Mandate to keep your neighbors safe and healthy. Thank you also for all those who have contributed to our food drive and for all of you who will be helping over the next couple weeks and bringing some joy to those who are looking for some extra help this holiday season.

Did You Know? Halloween Edition

  • The tradition of Halloween goes back over 2000 years! The origins of Halloween can be traced back to an old Celtic fall festival called Samhain (pronounced “sho-win”). People would dress up in costumes and gather around a bonfire to ward off spirits.
  • Trick-or-treating actually has roots back to medieval times. The practice of “guising” originated in Scotland and Ireland. Young people dressed up in costumes and asked for food and money in exchange for songs, poems or other “tricks.”
  • U.S. consumers have made Halloween the 2nd largest commercial holiday in the country. According to the National Retail Foundation, American consumers spent $9 billion on Halloween in 2019! The average American spend $86.27 on Halloween.
  • Jack-o-lanters originated in Ireland and were carved out of turnips, potatoes, and beets. As the story goes, an Irish man named Stingy Jack tricked the devil and was not allowed into the afterlife, and was therefore forced to roam the earth with his carved turnip lantern and called himself “Jack of the Lantern.” Americans actually popularized carving pumpkins.
  • Illinois produces roughly 5 times as many pumpkins as any other state in the US. New York City throws the biggest Halloween parade in the United States. The fastest person to carve a jack-o-lantern (consisting of a complete face of eyes, nose, mouth and ears) was 16.47 seconds! And last but not least, Keene, NH holds the record for most jack-o-lanterns on display with 30,581 lit up pumpkins around town!

We hope you’ve enjoyed this little trivia session, but now we’ve got to get back to bobbing for apples! Happy Halloween from Jackie, Mark, Mark and Ben at the Pinhook Flats office!

Since the post length is limited to 5000 words, I won’t go over all the things that they do here on a daily basis to make sure that things on the property and in your home are working well and running smoothly, but let’s just say that they both have an ‘S’ on their chest. We had to have them leave the capes at home for safety reasons, but rest assured they have them!

In Other News

There are a few fun things happening in September, unless you were counting on Big Ten football… There is everything from National Skyscraper Day, National Video Games Day, National Blame Someone Else Day, National Dance Day and office favorite, National Coffee Day (which, let’s be honest here, is every day)!

September is also National Self-Improvement Month. Motivational Speakers in the United States took in more than $1 billion in 2018 and the overall self-help market generates over $11 billion annually. During these unprecedented times, a lot of people have been looking for ways to better themselves. The good news is, it doesn’t take a motivational speaker to help get you jumpstarted, all it takes is a little time for you to focus on yourself! You can start a new workout routine, savings account or even find some time to volunteer. If all else fails, remember that kindness is always free and can make a huge difference to the people that you come across.
