I promised to update you regularly on how I am getting on with my comping challenge where I hope to make Christmas as cheap as possible. I haven’t won any vouchers this month which is a shame and the majority of things I have won have already been opened, however I wish for a better month next month.
This month I won:
Smurfs 2 DVD from a blog giveaway – This will be put away for Jack’s Christmas stocking
DAIM Chocolate – this hasn’t arrived yet but obviously won’t last until Christmas.
Family ticket for Empire Cinemas – the money we save from going to the cinema I am going to put away in the Christmas fund.
£20 Frankie and Benny’s voucher – Going to use this for a nice treat around Valentines Day
Kids pyjamas set – Depending on how small/big they come up on Jack, he may have them now or may be put away for Christmas
Debut book from Books, Biscuits and Tea blog – As it is for me, I am having this straight away!
Heroes of the City book, DVD and toys – Would have put this away for Christmas but Jack got there first…Oh dear!
Random black mug with chalk – Unsure about this – may decorate and use it as decoration somewhere.
As you can see, I had some nice wins but nothing that I can really use to keep Christmas costs down. I haven’t been too lucky with my surveys either – I have just cashed out £20 from one site though so hope to add that money to the Christmas pot.
Are you trying to keep Christmas costs down this year?
