Look away if you can’t bear to read about Christmas already 😉
I hope you didn’t though because to most of us, Christmas is an expensive time of year when it’s so easy to spend money that you can’t afford to spend and end up paying for it well into the New Year.
I love Christmas and although it’s certainly not all about presents, I do like the kids to wake up to lots of parcels on Christmas morning but we don’t put anything on a credit card, we don’t buy anything that we can’t afford and we make sure that we get the very best deal for everything that we buy.
This year, we’ve had such a great (but not cheap) Summer that although I’ve started buying bits and bobs, I haven’t actually started saving yet for the main things and there’s only three paydays left before Christmas for me (other than the December pay right before Christmas but I try to be done way before then)!
So, here’s my plan – I’m going to
try to make enough money to pay for the whole of Christmas.
What do you think of that?
First on my list is a car boot sale tomorrow which is why I’m currently knee deep in stuff as I’m in the process of de-cluttering the house ready for it. I’ve always found car boot sales to be a great way to make some extra money so I’m hopeful that this is going to give me a good start.

Anyone else up for the challenge?
