Trading your Christmas Chocolate for Cold Hard Cash!!

With Christmas over, if you are anything like me then I’m sure you will have loads of chocolate and sweets left over. If it is the new year, you may have decided to set your New Year’s resolutions and one of the will be to eat healthy, but then that little voice in the back of your head kicks in and tell’s you to eat the chocolate and sweets, get them out of the way and not to waste money.

Well, yeah I would completely agree with you on not wasting the chocolate. I’m sure that we are all in agreement that january is a horrible month when it comes to money, as the festive season can be really hard on the pocket, maybe a bit more expensive than you wanted, oh the joys of families and/or friends.



I want to help, no I’m not going to give you my address so you can send me your left over chocolate, though that may be a good idea. What I’m going to help you with is how to make some money with your left over chocolate and sweets, I’m going to give you a very simple, yet useful and realistic way to make / save money and get rid of those treats.


Here you can see, 5p gives you one chocolate, 10p gives you two, 20p give you three and if you need a fix and are feeling flush, 50p for four!!

What do you do with the big timers though? Just like the supermarkets, up the price. £1 for a tube and £2 for a box!


In no time you’ll start to see the chocolate disappear and start to save some money. Why not give it a try, to really get into the spirit, make up a list of items and prices so family members, children, partners and friends can see and pay for what they want themselves!
