“Using the $10 each week plan, you will have saved $420. If you can manage $20 each week, your total will be closer to $1000. If you are not sure how much to plan for, financial experts recommend keeping your Christmas gift expenditures to 1.5% of your income.”

5 Months till Christmas!!!

By planning now for Christmas there will be less stress at the end of the year.

See last post for ideas.

How about making your Christmas cards this year?

Type in Google “Festive Friday Blog Hop” – you will come up with heaps of ideas for home made cards – these people have been making cards throughout the year to alleviate the stress at Christmas time.

6 months till Christmas!!!

June 25, 2014

Welcome to the Grand Christmas countdown!

Yes thats right 6 months till Christmas -Exciting aye!

Start saving money for those Christmas pressies or put them on layby/layaway. Its easier this way

If you haven’t all ready join a Christmas hamper club or get Christmas club vouchers at your local grocery store. You could still have a great spread for the big day. Every little bit counts. I’m doing $5 a fortnight at the moment.

Happy planning!

Start a Christmas fund
