Christmas on £50

This year I have £50 for everything for the two weeks of Christmas. Food, drink, presents, cards, paper, the tree, postage, the lot. Lets see how I get on!

Right all the cards are done! I bought them last year in the Jan sales. Over 100 cards cost 75p

Paper brought last year in the sales £1.50 eight rolls.

Tape, free through Facebook offer.

I will update with what I have bought or spent my money on!

    I’M WITH YOU. WE ALL SPEND A LOT MORE THAN WE NEED OR CAN AFFORD TO.
    WE SEND CARDS TO PEOPLE WE RARELY SEE OR HERE FROM.
    PRESENTS BECAUSE WE FEEL WE OUGHT TO.
    CHRISTMAS SHOULD BE FOR HAVING FUN WITH THE PEOPLE WE CARE MOST ABOUT.
    WE’VE MADE A RULE THAT NO MORE PRESENTS FOR ADULTS, ONLY THE YOUNG IN THE FAMILY.
    FOOD IS ONLY THE NORM WITH A FEW EXTRA’S ADDED. (YOU CAN ONLY EAT SO MUCH IN A DAY).
    I’VE HAD MY YEARS OF GETTING INTO DEBT AND SPENDING THE NEXT YEAR PAYING IT ALL OFF. LOL

    MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERY-ONE.

      Merry Christmas Mommy Dearest, and everyone else!

    oh dear, i have spent hundreds on christmas, my kids (young adults actually) always expect expensive stuff, but i did save up my small change all year to do this, the reason i feel obliged to do this is because no-one else in the family bothers with them,
    my mum and dad have never bothered with their grandchildren and so we always tried to make up for their lack of prezzies ourselves, but there is 4 of them so what can you do?….
    but i have cut back on the food part i am not buying loads of stuff that wont get eaten and then it will go off and end up being chucked out, because if there one thing i never do these days is waste food, so i am getting better,

  6. Hi Julie, looks like your making a good start with reducing on buying the food. Just look at it this way if your kids are young adults they will soon be buying their own stuff and if you have saved up and can afford to buy expensive pressies good for you! There is nothing wrong with that if you can afford it. Just enjoy it and have a lovely Christmas.
