  • Thanks for this article. One of the best bits of advice was what to stock up on in January – because I think it’s incredibly important to make the most of the sales around this time of year, as there will be a lot of people who are short on money around this time. So yes, I think that it is great that we have this advice, as it means that we can really avoid paying too much money for things further down the line.

  • My saving plan I hope will be based on that 52 week saving plan. I am sure you all know what I mean the chart that tells you to save $1 week one $2 week 2, etc. A lot of people are suggesting to save the bigger amount for later which I found very interesting.

    • That’s interesting! I am currently trying to save at least $5 a day, which means $35 a week by buying things in bulk and DIY-ing as much as I can. I will look into your saving plan, it sounds like a lot of fun!
