I’m so glad that the holidays are almost over! It’s been expensive for us! Expensive at a time when we can’t afford to spend one extra cent. Arghhh!
Chris is on a two week lay-off from work. He’ll be off again for a further two weeks each in March and June thanks to the hospital where he works being over budget and temporarily doing rolling lay offs to make up for their lack of money.
So money is tighter than ever … perfect time of year for it. Yes I’m being sarcastic.
Even though we’ve been trying to not spend much money it feels like we spent more this year than last. Every time we go in a store we seem to come out with more than we planned to buy … ie groceries for Christmas day and house guests this week etc. I just stare as the barcode scanner adds up our total and hope it’s less than I think it’s going to be. LOL
Have you had an expensive holiday season as well? Are you happy that it’s almost over because you’ll stop spending all that extra money soon? And … are you dreading January’s credit card bill? LOL
