It’s just a couple of weeks until the dawn of 2019 and, as usual, I am busy compiling a list of New Year’s resolutions that I might not keep much past the first week of January. Still, the thought’s there, isn’t it?
Generally, all of my resolutions either involve getting healthier or saving money – and there’s nothing like January’s credit card bills to focus your mind on your expenditure and income (or lack of). Yes, that Christmas debt hangover can be hard to shake off.
Plus there’s that extra long wait until January’s payday if you were paid a week or so early in December. No wonder the second Monday in January is known as Blue Monday!
So, I’m asking you to share your best ideas for saving money in the New Year and there’s a £20 Nando’s gift card up for grabs too.
Will you cut up all your cards and just use cash? Thinking about it I rarely use cash these days!
Or will you stop your occasional spending on large takeaway coffees? Or save at the supermarket by buying own brands?
Will you be ditching takeaways and cooking from scratch? Or perhaps you’ll be selling all your old clobber in boot sales or online market places.
Whatever it is, I’d love to hear and I’ll use the best suggestions in a roundup post later in January.
Nando’s Gift Card Giveaway
So with an eye on your budget, I have a £20 Nando’s gift card to give away to one lucky winner.
You could try their new Fresco Burger – PERi-PERi chicken breast, smashed avocado and tangy pickled cucumber, topped with rocket. Then there’s the Butterfly Burger – two succulent chicken breasts joined by crispy skin, packed in a Portuguese roll and topped with tomato and lettuce.
There is a selection of veggie options to including the Supergrain Salad – a fresh mix of grains, greens and beans with avocado chunks and an avocado & buttermilk dressing, served on mixed salad leaves. Or what about the Veggie Cataplana? Chickpeas, chargrilled veg and beans in a spicy tomato and coconut sauce are served on spicy rice and sprinkled with toasted coconut shavings.
Entry to the Nando’s gift card giveaway is via the GLEAM widget and the usual terms and conditions apply which you can find on my giveaways page.
No cash alternative and 1 entry per household. Winner selected at random.
The giveaway is open to UK entrants only and ends at 11:59 pm on Friday 11 January 2019.
I can’t wait to hear your boredom busting ideas and the best ones will be published in a post in a few weeks’ time.
