December is a month of sharing, gifts, time with family and feasts, all costs a lot of money. Some people might have gotten bonuses, others will get loans and credit from unscrupulous lenders because of adverse credit records.

Twitter users seem to have some ideas of what you can do to survive the spending fever

As you party this December, remember Januworry is coming, NO money for children to return to school or worse for some to return to work. Such is the sad story of consumerism in South Africa. Do NOT fall onto the trapp of spending money you don’t have this festive season.
