New Year's resolutions for the money-conscious
Want to become a savvy saver? Mumsnetters share their resolutions for managing money in the New Year
It's time to get those finances in order
“To stop having so much month at the end of the money.”
And you'll have no one to thank but yourself
''To have an income, however small or irregular, earned by me.''
Whatever you do, don't step foot on the high street
“Shop online to resist temptation in shops.”
And make that leap you've always wanted to
''Buy a house with a garden, a biiiiig kitchen, and a gift-wrapping room."
The bank of mum is officially closed
“To wash the 'mug' sign off my head and stop lending my daughter money I won't get back.”
And you'll want to employ a few sneaky tactics
''Unsubscribe from retailers' emails.''
Always think ahead
“Make a large meal plan to save on wastage and rotate to avoid getting bored.”
Make sure you prep in advance
“Make a packed lunch every day to save money… and calories!”
And this Christmas, who knows…
''To overcome my lack of musical talent and write a catchy Christmas pop song that shoots up the charts and is then played ad infinitum, bringing in a deluge of money. To bask in the knowledge that said pop song is pissing off millions of people at the same time as making me very rich.''
