Right guys I have well and truly fallen into the Black Friday madness and spent literally the last 3 days shopping online and in-store sifting through all the crap to get to the good stuff that I will literally keep in my wardrobe till next year and probably end up selling on ebay.

This is by far the most expensive time of the year and I know a lot of my mates dread it because we all know we’re gonna be broke until next March now. Christmas is all about gift giving now and celebrating the new year on NYE is all about spending as much money as you can to ensure you have the best night ever and then I have my best mates birthday another two birthdays in February then it’s mine and my sisters in March. So basically I’m screwed for the next 4 months.

I don’t have much family at all but I do have a lot of friends that have wormed their way into my hearts so of course they’re gonna get spoilt and then that brings me to my babies Henry and Smudge. Of course, they need Christmas outfits, toys, hampers and anything else that looks sooo cute. So you know my credit cards gonna get rinsed out and I actually think I have a shopping problem I actually enjoy racking up the pounds on my cards that’s awful right?! Or the sign that I have an ongoing problem.

wanted to tell you about a system I have for not wasting your money on crap that your mates don’t want and will blatantly return in the boxing day sales.

It’s very simple but very effective. write a list of 5 things that you actually want or need and give it to your mate, they can then pick something from that list so really you still don’t know exactly what present you’re getting however it’s guaranteed to be something you want.

Last year I gave an unwanted present ( that I had left in my wardrobe for a whole year ) back to the person who gave it to me originally!!!! This was a complete coincidence and I was mortified but I had completely forgotten who gave it to me in the first place. So If you wanna save yourself that embarrassment WRITE A LIST THIS YEAR! You’re welcome! Oh, and P.S If you wanna save yourself a load of cash shopping on Christmas presents remember it’s CYBER MONDAY tomorrow !!
