The Friday Five | Things I've Spent Money on This Week

I'm stating the obvious when I say that December is the most expensive (and wonderful) time of year. My bank balance has been taking a huge hit and I thought I'd share with you where the majority of my money has gone this week for TFF. 

1. Christmas Presnts, Wrapping and Cards
Obviously. I've pretty much finished all my Christmas shopping though, so that's something at least. And I'm looking forward to a festive afternoon sat by the tree in my Christmas PJ's doing all the wrapping and card writing. 

2. Alcohol
Getting in from work on a Friday night in the cold and dark - perfect time for a glass of wine. Going to a Christmas party - pass the prosecco! Walking around the German Markets - got to have a mulled wine. It's almost Christmas - got to get the Baileys in.

3. New iPhone
With everything else that's draining my bank balance, of course my phone upgrade would be due this month! It's time to finally say goodbye to my 5s and upgrade to the 6s. Yes I know I'm behind the times and the 7 is out but I just could not afford the ridiculous monthly contract prices. So the 6s it is for me, and I'm so excited about it! However, I'm not excited about the extra tenner a month it's costing me compared to my 5s. Hmph.

4. Food
Seriously, I'm eating like I've never eaten before. I'm ballooning up like a whale and I don't seem to care. There's so many good things to eat this time of year. Cadburys Fingers, Terry's Chocolate Orange, tubs of Celebrations, Jacob's Treeslets (omg), mini rolls, gingerbread, crepes and bratwursts at the German markets, cheese boards, festive home baking, take aways on those cold nights in, meals out with friends and family... The list goes on and on and on. 

5. Christmas Jumpers and Toys for my Dog
Dogs can feel festive too, you know.
