Christmas is expensive, it’s a fact. Every year I try and find ways to cut corners and save some pennies so I’m not still paying for it by June. I buy wrapping paper in the sales and pack it away with the decorations, have costing negotiations with my family on how much we’ll spend and try to buy a few practical presents for the boys. I gave up buying Christmas cards for family many years ago, preferring to send them something which I or my children have made, it’s a much more personal way of sending Christmas love and cheer to loved ones.
