Each and every year it gets to the end of November and money starts to look tighter than Santa’s belt. Even when you’re just getting paid, the month ahead is extremely long, even though you’re going to have a few days off (in fact that probably makes it even harder to budget).
If you’ve not got all your Christmas presents it’s even worse, which makes it all the more disheartening if a genuine financial emergency comes along.
It can really ruin your Christmas when you’ve spent the last of your money on the family and then the worst happens; your car breaks down; your washing machine explodes; the cat breaks its leg; there are so many crises that can occur, and if you don’t have some cash put aside for them then it can really break your festive spirit.
If you do find yourself in a predicament without the funds to pay for it, there are short term solutions available to get you through to the New Year and your next pay cheque. Short term loan providers can be a genuine help when you need money quickly.
Short term loans are for emergency use only – do NOT think you can take one out a few days before Christmas to pay for your presents, as this really isn’t the right way to deal with something that you’re going to have to pay back. The best thing to do is not to blow your Christmas budget in the first place. It might be a time for merriment, but you won’t feel too jolly if you let yourself get in debt if you don’t need to.
