My Christmas shopping was going well. I had aimed to finish before the children break up. However things have suddenly colluded against me. The older two are due to finish school on Tuesday, they were not happy that their sister and dad break up on Friday but I was secretly pleased as it leaves me with more time.
Until, that is, an email landed in my inbox informing me that school is finishing two days early due to staff sickness. Whilst the older two whooped with delight I mentally cried a little!
I have struggled to buy for Dylan this year – every time I have asked for ideas I was met with a blank face. Therefore I have been creative, I have made some executive decisions on his behalf and bought his presents. Last night as we all sat watching TV and he announced that he has thought of some things and recalled a long list. A long list of things that was different to what I had already bought! Therefore Christmas jusst got more expenssive and I still have shopping to do despite thinking I was almost done!
Thankfully I have been using Swagbucks again recently and I have earnt £75 of FREE MONEY in the past month. I have earnt this from watching videos, filling in surveys and signing up to new offers. This rewarded me with £75 of Amazon vouchers and I was able to tick of plenty of Christmas shopping this way.
This week, starting today Swagbucks have a great promotion running. They are offering 4X the normal cashback. This makes the Swagbucks more generous than TopCashBack. Today I have been finishing my Christmas shopping for Dylan and thankfully got cashback on most of the items. This has saved me money again and we all know that saving money makes me happy!
You can sign up to Swagbucks using this link. Use tend to use swagbucks in the evening when I am sitting on the laptop whilst watching TV and chatting with the family. I also always use it when shopping online as it just provides cashback on most things I buy. Online shopping has saved my sanity this year as I much prefer getting it all online and having it delivered whilst I am working at home. It saves me time and money which makes it a win win in my book!
