No Cards This Christmas!

Hello Everyone,
So, the nights are drawing in and the mornings are getting darker, the air is becoming icy and the smell of roasted chestnuts wafts around the streets.  That can only mean one thing ….. Christmas is nearly here!
Seasonal shopping fever has started and I too have joined the crowds of gift hunters dressed in furry hats and boots (feeling uncomfortably overheated in the shops!) battling through pushchairs, toddlers, domestic arguments and oversized shopping bags in my quest to find sensibly priced presents for my family and friends.
As always, I found leaving my card at home and taking out a limited amount of cash was the sensible thing to do.  I continue to leave my card safe at home when I go out, and have found that I have managed my monthly allowance much better using this method and would recommend it to everyone!
This year I will be trying my best to support local shops and independent retailers by purchasing my Christmas gifts from them instead of online or through the high street giants, as inspired by reading this article:- which I would recommend giving a quick read!
Let’s help support our local businesses this festive season and hopefully save some money in the process.
Have a wonderful Festive Season and I’ll catch up with you all in 2013 when it’s my favourite time of year ……….. the January sales!!
