My Christmas Countdown Challenge continues.

Hi everyone, welcome to my blog. This week I’m talking about our Christmas Countdown, store rewards and saving for an emergency.  

If there is anything else you would like to discuss, please let me know in this blog’s comments section. 

Christmas Countdown  

Let’s keep saving. Christmas is a huge expense and not always affordable. So, the idea is that we save up during the year to help towards the cost.

But what you are also creating is a savings nest-egg. Savings that can be used in an emergency.   

There are 43 weeks and five days until Christmas Day. If you decided to join me on my Christmas Countdown Challenge and save £20.00 a week, your total should be £140.00 already!  

By Christmas, you would have saved £980.00 if all goes to plan.

But let us face it, life is not always that simple, so if you cannot save every week, do not worry, start again the next week. 

Grown your own – my allotment

My seed potatoes have arrived! So now I need to plant them in May.  As I said traditionally, some people grow their potatoes around Easter time, but I plant mine later at the end of May to ensure the frosts have all but finished.

But everyone has their ideas on when to plant.  I will need to prepare the ground first.  That’s another story for another blog.  

Hints and Tips 

Do not forget to claim all your store reward points from your supermarket. You can save them for Christmas or cash them in if there is an offer.  Maybe you could double your points on some purchases – treat them like money. 

Do not forget to use all your store reward coupons again. Treat them like money. 

Thank you
