Hi there Money Saving Lords and Ladies. It’s that time of year again. Here on Queen of Free, I will begin posting a larger than normal volume of posts that revolve around great deals . . . perfect for stockings, gifts, and even you. This is a wee bit out of the norm for me as I usually encourage you to save money and not spend it.
Every time I post a deal, I feel a little guilty . . . like I’m leading you astray.
You see my hope is that you come here on a regular basis hoping to gain a little inspiration & encouragement.
That you would learn to LOVE living within your means, delighting in contentment.
That you would learn from our story and avoid our financial mistakes.
That you would be challenged to pay off debt, save money anyway possible, and make wise choices.
That you would trim the fat in your budget and run your household well.
That you would realize it’s holy to waste nothing.
That you would gain joy from free stuff (because it’s a shared passion we hold).
That you would hear me saying, “me too” when you feel like you’ve been stupid with money.
That you would be amused by my upside down, poured out on the ground life.
The last thing that I would ever want is to lead you into a state of discontent or even worse debt.
So you’re going to need to make me a promise (because I have no way of stopping you, tracking it, or chasing you down to chew you out), please spend responsibly this Christmas. Do NOT use credit to purchase the items you see linked on my site. Set a budget and remain within it.
Some of posts will contain affiliate links. What that means is I’ll gain a few pennies or maybe even a couple of dollars when you purchase said product (or possibly something else from the site). I always let you know when I post a deal that is affiliate based. I’m not trying to rob you and I have a high threshold for deals that I post (if it ain’t 50%+ off, it ain’t a deal, Lords and Ladies).
Learning to spend well during the holiday season was a lesson I learned the HARD way. Please don’t repeat my crazy in your story.
Live well. Be content. Remember what the holidays are truly about. Please make me a little promise this Christmas.
DON’T SPEND MONEY YOU DON’T HAVE.
