December The Month Of Spending Too Much Money!!
November 15, 2016 2:44pm CST
I have a very expensive month coming up. Not only is it xmas but I have my car that I need to get service, Taxed and MOT. Not to mention the costs of fixing the car if things are found wrong with it during the service and MOT. I am officially broke, but as soon as December arrives I am going to be even more broke! Do you dread all the spending of money in December?

Well said! I think the trick is to ensure your children are regularly disappointed at Christmas during their upbringing. That way they won't expect much in the way of presents. Also if you avoid them as much as possible during the year then they'll appreciate the time you have together during the festive period! Now let's see how many people don't realise I'm joking.

I think that people make their own stress at this time of year. They want to buy, buy, buy. It is their choice to do so. I think that if people want to buy nice gifts for people on their list they could start a few months ahead of time.

Well, we have 10 kids to buy Christmas for, plus hubby has just broken his windshield. He was driving under a bridge on the highway where they are working and a big rock came down and smashed his windshield . He has giant circles circling around and round all across him window. Not cool. Goodbye $600!! I know what you are talking about for sure.

There are many expenses we can prevent to reduce our outcomes in December. It mustn't be too expensive if we plan in advance. Usually, I try to start with my plannings in August or September, when prices are still normal. For example, I already have all my gifts for Christmas and I attended my car in october and I also planned the menu, so I started to buy some of the ingredients.
