It’s getting to that time of year again…
Soon we’ll be immersed in Christmas music, decorations and mince pies for a two whole months!
The expectation to make Christmas perfect seems to go up and up - but more troublingly, so does the cost. Christmas can be a hard time to keep financially well.
A couple of years ago my family decided to make a change. We decided to stop buying gifts for everyone and replace it with Secret Santa. Now, we only get one present worth up £20, it’s cheaper for everyone and cuts waste.
So, in the run up to Christmas - what changes, big or small, have you made to make Christmas more affordable? Any tips to share?
And let’s have a vote to settle it once and for all… when should Christmas music actually be allowed to play in the shops?
- October - I love it!
- Early November - when it starts to get chilly
- Late November
- December only, thank you!
