Reasons to be Thankful this November…

Get money for Christmas with online loans from Loans 2 Go…

Over the past few years we have become increasingly aware of the American holiday of Thanksgiving. 

Almost every season of Friends featured a Thanksgiving episode. These were always iconic memorable episodes, including special guests (such as Brad Pitt and Christina Applegate), heads stuck in turkeys (Monica) or doors (Joey), culinary disasters (think Rachel’s trifle) and many heart to heart conversations and sharing of secrets.

The concept of Thanksgiving is thought to date back to the early 1600s. It was originally a feast to give thanks for the harvest, but its contemporary form is to gather family and friends together and give thanks for the good things in their lives.

This year Thanksgiving takes place on Thursday 28th November. The day after Thanksgiving is Black Friday – which marks the “official” start of the Christmas shopping season. Black Friday is followed closely by Cyber Monday and then of course all the December festivities start.

So really, once we get to Thanksgiving we are already hurtling towards Christmas. For many of us that is yet another thing to be thankful for. We love planning to have time off work and enjoy ourselves celebrating with family and friends.

The problem is that if you are struggling financially, then the approaching festive season can seem like a nightmare. It’s not that we don’t want to go out and enjoy ourselves, entertain people and buy lots of presents. We really do. It’s just that we don’t have the money.

What to do?

Well, first of all take a look at our article Have a Happy Christmas without breaking the bank. This will give you some ideas about how to cut down your Christmas spending.

But if you are in need of some extra finances for the festive season then it might be worth taking out a small loan to see you through. You need to plan your spending carefully and work out how much you need. We can all overspend at Christmas and this will only get you into further debt as we go into 2020. 

So first of all, take time to decide what your essential spending is, and how much extra money you are going to need to meet it. Rather than getting out the credit card to meet the difference it could be better to take out a small loan. This is because with credit cards you will be charged interest every month, and could well end up just paying off that interest and still owing the original money you borrowed. But if you take out a small loan you will know exactly what your repayments are going to be and how long it will take you to repay the loan. Then once it’s repaid that’s the end of it.

With Loans 2 Go it is easy to apply for a loan. We have a range of online loans available so you can apply from the comfort of your own home. Also, once your application is approved, we aim to get the money to you within 60 minutes.
