While everyone else is running up debts on their credit cards to decorate their houses and buy gifts for everyone and getting stressed out, I'm not.
I bought all the gifts in October, wrapped them up in November and sent them off in early December.
I'm now £100 in credit after all my bills have come out and I've got £50 a week to spend on the groceries as well as putting a tenner a week into B to cover my Namehog bills this year and I haven't been stressed out about it once! I'm just sitting here totally relaxed and watching everyone else get stressed out about not having enough cash!
I've been buying Christmas/Yule gifts in October for the last 20 years and wouldn't have it any other way now - so much less stressful this way and it's spread out over 3 months rather than 3 weeks and I can just concentrate on watching the telly and listening to music and planning out my next novel and stuff like that!
Means I can relax and know that I'm not starting 2018 in debt again... yay! 😄
