Bonus tip: This might be the perfect time of year for a month-long subscription to streaming services you don’t otherwise want year-round. While they might not be good purchases if you don’t want to use them regularly, the holiday season is the exception. Not only is more added during this time, it’s also a nice way to make things feel extra cheery.
