Yes, I'm going to go where no one else dare to....(This is for those who whine about money)

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

It's that time again. Before I start, I have to say, there are exceptions to this...medical issues, cheating spouses, etc...

ONWARD...

Now is the time we hear bitching and moaning about not having money for Christmas. Really? How long have you know it falls on December 25th?

Suggestions for ways to save for Christmas...

1. Stop smoking

2. Instead of buying alcohol, save it.

3. Pack your lunch for work.

4. Water instead of soda.

5. Hang you clothes to save on laundry or electric.

6. Cut you Internet.

7. Cut cable/satellite tv.

8. Sell your jewelry.

9. Sell electronics.

10. bake sale & yard sale in the summer.

11. Get a job

12. Get a second job

13. Stop getting nails done

14. Stop tanning

15. Don't eat out

16. Don't go to the movies, bowling, etc.

17.  Sell Avon, Pamper Chef, Scensy, etc.

18. Use generic

19. Save your "extra pays". If you are paid weekly, their are 4 month you get paid 3 times. If paid biweekly, their are 2.

20. Shop sales and clearance.

21. Use tax refunds for the following Christmas.


The list goes on and on

I've been stashing presents since July lol. I've just got a few little things to buy and I'm done. I dump all the change in my wallet into a jar at the end of the week and that's a good chunk of my Christmas money. :)

 I do all those things. And we try to start getting a little here and there months prior to christmas. My sons bday and christmas arent far apart. so that makes it a little rougher. My husband is a disabled vet, and I have endometriosis and thyroid issues. so I have constant doc bill and meds for myself. thankfully, my husband gets all his medical needs paid for by the VA>
