Trying to balance grad school, work, and caring for my young son can be difficult. I wait tables while in school at a beachside restaurant, so business and the money that comes along with it are seasonal. The fall and winter months are slow, so to alleviate the worry about paying for Christmas presents for my son, I purchase a $25 gift card every two weeks when I get paid. When December rolls around and it's time to go shopping, my son's Christmas is paid for and I always have extra money left over.
