Stupid January. Stupid December. Stupid other people overspending in December. et al. Really isn't going to help me, like, with anything.
The way things are going, I think it's going to be one those money-tight years. At least, here in the UK, anyway.
Holiday spending maintains the economy!
I personally think spending should be a balance, not May-September barely any spending, then October-April spend a crap load. It's weird, and kinda stupid.
