Impulse buying at Christmas could cause heartache in the New Year

Wed, 30 Nov 2011


For many people, the Christmas countdown starts tomorrow with the first day of advent - and we're being given a timely reminder about the danger of overspending.

The Isle of Man Office of Fair Trading says going over the top on presents and impulse buying can cause us heartache and problems, especially in the New Year.

We're reminded that we still have our rent or mortgage and bills to pay on top of our Christmas spending.

Advice Centre Manager Andrea Tabb advises us to be realistic, budget and plan what we're going to buy before we hit the shops.[play media file below]
