Just wondering if people would have saved much money had they bought all their presents after Christmas rather than before?

I think I did pretty well, I spent around £3000 on Christmas this year and the only thing I have seen cheaper was a DW Jadoon helmet for about £3 cheaper than I paid.

Having said that I'm sure if I went round shops there would be a few more things, but certainly it wasn't like most years where by boxing day I am thinking 'if i'd waited until today I woould have saved £xxx!

The only thing that slightly narks me is i paid £329 for the Hannspree 32" LCD with freeview, and although I haven't really seen it any cheaper (in fact its £10 more at ebuyer now), for £400 I could have got a Sony or another branded make.

I don't know if it's because I started back in September and only really bought stuff when I knew it was a good price, or because teh January sales are pretty rubbish this year (in fact in most retail shops I've been in most things are the same price as before the holiday!)

How about everyone else?

£3000 isn't that much is it?
That was absolutely everything including the dinner etc.
2 daughters, laptop each almost came to a third of that
£370 for the TV and stand which I had wanted for ages, but justified it by saying it was my present to myself :)
£250 went to my eldest daughter (13) for her to buy clothes with, but as I (obviously) buy all her clothes, thats only a bit more than she would have had spent on clothes over the past few and the next few months anyway.

I had a pretty decent year for a change, and had more money than usual so everyone got a bit spoilt for once.

Your daughters should feel very lucky :)

Obviously, if you can afford to then go out and spoil them then go for it. The thing is to do it well and make sure you paid the best possible price for each of those 3000 pounds.

£250 sure buys a lot of clothes for a 13 year old. I am sure that will buy lots in Primark!

Sweet Jesus! £3000 on Christmas! If you can afford it or not,that is utterly disgusting! All the starving kids in the world,and ppl still spend more than a person gets on benefits FOR THE WHOLE YEAR TO LIVE ON in this country on sh*t that they probably don't even need. Bill Gates probably never even spent that much,but he seen the light recently and gave a lot of hos money away. A shroud has no pockets :thumbsup:

oh please, disgusting? Did you watch the fireworks in London on tv this evening? They probably cost more than I will earn in my life, are you writing to whoever paid for them and telling them they are disgusting for burning all that money?
Every time you see someone in a car worth more than a few hundred quid do you tell them how disgusting they are for spending £10000 when they could have sent it to Africa?

No,and I was not meaning to sound preachy...The point I was trying to make is that it is ALL of our responsibility to try and help one another,and your right,we can't do that when we are consumed by the world and try to buy happiness. Americanization,Globalization,Greed,call it what you will,I have just had enough. People killing each other in the name of "God",pointless wars to further enrich corrupt leeches who feed off of society. Need I go on? I just think that it is the time of year that we should be looking at the bigger picture. We are all connected,our life,our energy,our love. You can deny it,but you are only denying your true self. I am nothing without my fellow brothers and sisters. The more people are aware of this,and connect to it,to the true meaning of life,the better chance we will all have to be here another 2008 years. Just think,if everyone who spent £3000 this year for Christmas spent only £500 or less even and put the rest in to a fund to cure hunger,this time next year more people would maybe be thankful to be alive with food in their belly rather than yet another designer,or media inspired "lifestyle" "dream" "luxury" item,purchase, that can never make up for the emptiness that you perpetually feel inside due to your "family" your brothers and sisters suffering before your selective vision. I am also guilty of this,so God willing I am allowed time here on this glorious earth to amend my ways...

Me thinks you need to hit a little higher than HUKD, how many members here do you think spend thousands, yes there maybe some, but i bet its not the majority. Yo really wanna do something worthwhile, give beckham or elton john a ring, i for one struggle year in and year out and i certainly dont expect the likes of hukd to spend less so i can have more, i struggle to provide for my own family never mind providing for those across the seas

Ok - so if I win the lottery - and I mean millions - I'm still expected to spend £500 on Christmas and spoiling the one's I love?

Don't be stupid - Christmas is about giving two hoots about those you love. Theres a saying - live within your means... if you wanna spend £3000 on Christmas - do it if you can afford it.
#21

i mean i woke up and saw a large massage chair in the living room?

Hmmm I would say £3000 is over the top ... But then again so is buying new laptops for your daughters at so young an age, guessing around 9-11 as your eldest is 13?
But hey if your rolling in it why not.

But what did make me chuckle is that you dont think £3000 is alot of money? yet you treat yourself to an unknown brand 32" ??
32" Hanspree doesnt quite cut it down at the local wine bar like a 46" sony or B&O :-D ....

£400 will buy you the 37" Hanspree now plus you'll have £50 in your back pocket in change :thumbsup: ....
