You can't pay your rent, car payment or untilities because you robbed Peter to pay Paul.

Only idiots neglect bills for Xmas. That thinking explains why they struggle.

It's pretty common.  No wonder people look forward to their tax refund!

A lot of people do that robbing of Peter to pay Paul and especially around this time of year.

They just want to have a Christmas tree with some presents under it for their kids. I can't find fault with that.

But not paying the bills to get those presents is NEVER wise. Ever, at any time. Come the 26th of December, those bills are staring that person in the face, and they don't just simply go away.

No, I buy within budget after bills are paid.
