Debtfree Magazine – Editor’s Note
December is a lot of fun regardless of if you are on holiday or not. There is just something in the air that speaks of freedom or fun. Look, don’t get me wrong it isn’t as much fun when you only get to hear stories about how your friends are taking 3 weeks off and that and you have to work through but there will be public holidays and the weekends at least.
‘We all need to remember January is coming and it can be a very, very long month especially if you blew your budget in December.’
If you are one of those who are taking time off then travel safe and get some rest and recuperate. It has been a tough year. At the same time, all of us need to watch our spending this December (sorry retailers). If you don’t watch out, a few extra bucks spent here and there can add up to some serious damage before you know it. We all need to remember January is coming and it can be a very, very long month especially if you blew your budget in December. This issue we look at things you need to keep in mind with 2019 just around the corner.
Talking about 2019, can you believe 2018 is done? Seems so fast now (but so slow before). We take a quick look back at some of the highs and lows that impacted on us financially this year and at some of the debt review related matters particularly. When you see it all in one go you will realize how busy the year really was.
It can be challenging to have fun on a budget so in this issue we look at some basics of December spending to stay on the right side of your budget. If you slip up during the year-end it can turn from a great time to the straw that breaks the camel’s back and sends you tumbling right into the hands of the collections agents and lawyers so, please be careful. Please make your payments and please try to have a little fun on your journey to become debt free.
