For once I am not. This year I made sure that I planned my budget really well and did not buy unnecessary things. I feel happy now!! It is a great achievement for me. I also made sure that each time I went out with friends I made a small budget for my expenses and It worked out really well. I guess that good planning skill is the key to it all. :)

Nope I am not. Thank goodness! But there is a reason why. I am planning to buy a new phone or a laptop. I have been saving this money for two months already hoping to still earn more. And by the time I have enough, then I hope I can already decide which one to buy

Not laptop and phone. I'll be able to buy one of these two only. I'll have to earn some more to buy another gadget.

I always planned my expenses but I'm not able to find a job so my money decreases. My income become only from internet and more or less 150 euros per year are not sufficient. I hope to find quickly a job!

Not bankrupt because I've had gifts given to me in return for the ones I gave. It was a breakeven thing and some of my relatives even gave me money as gifts so I guess I would have to say I have received more this holiday season.

Thank God I still have some few savings. :-) I used to spend a lot during holiday season. However, I think I should save for this year so that is what I did. :-) We really have to be wise in spending money nowadays...

This festival I bought myself a new laptop and now am using it. As more than half year without income, I ask my mother for help and the money for the laptop is also brought from my mother. Now I have several bills had to pay and if I can not get income in the next few months, I think I will have a big financial problem.

Nice of you to think of yourself. Your Mum's loves you a lot if she did that. I hope you will get a nice job soon.

Nope I am not. I don't have any kids and my family is not into giving expensive gifts to each other during the holidays. Even if I had kids, I would not buy them expensive gifts. They should be thankful for the simple presents their poor mother bothered to buy. I am a firm believer of, "don't spend a lot of money on gifts, if you don't have the money"

Well, I have to admit and be honest that after the holidays, I am already broke and have no money left in my pocket. I can't blame myself for it because I have to provide food for my family and to share things for them and including the gifts for my godchildren.

I am on a fixed income, and I do make a litle bit online, but not that much. I am having a hard time gettting the money from my tenants, because of the economy. ijust hope that things get better soon. I will just keep doing what I have been doing, and I hope that I end up making more money and when I need it. Take care, and happy mylotting.

Online does not give one a good income, it is merely a petty cash to help you with small expenses. I also sure hope that the economy here in my country will get better soon. Happy mylotting to you too.
