What's the point in wasting money when we happy with the simple things in life?
It's time to pop open the port and get into party mode because there are only three more sleeps until Christmas!
It's to be hoped we've all been good this year and our stockings will be overflowing with goodies.
I've put some very glamorous things on my Christmas list this year.
They range from a shower cap to a potato peeler, rather than a pair of Prada heels.

The other half thinks I've gone crackers but anything that makes my life easier is worth its weight in gold.
A shower cap will stop my hair getting wet and help me get to get out of the house quicker on a morning while a new potato peeler will save me time in the kitchen when I make Sunday dinner – leaving more time for the fun things in life, like having a cheeky glass or two of wine.
I don't need to have lavish amounts of money spent on me to enjoy Christmas, although if the other half is reading this I would appreciate having something to unwrap.
In an ideal world I'd love a pair of designer shoes, an Italian handbag and a dress from an exclusive boutique, but what's the point in wasting money on these things when we can be just as happy with the simple things in life?
Although one of our friends has spent £240 on two sets of underwear for his partner.
I didn't realise you could buy underwear that cost that much.
When the other half and I look at the indecent amount we have spent on our family this Christmas it's shameful.
We've spent far too much money on our relatives in a bid to make them happy and not offend anyone when we really we should have just wrapped up a chocolate orange.
To be honest, I don't know what to buy any of them because they're old and have everything they need.
After weeks of traipsing through the shops to find something I settled on buying everyone onesies.
They're this year's big hit.
Who wouldn't want a warm, snuggly adult babygrow to wear around the house?
Well, I certainly wouldn't, but for entertainment value I thought it'd be fun to get my parents Spider-Man and Pink Panther outfits and my brother-in-law will look super in his monkey onesie.
I bet my family won't be the only ones watching the Queen's speech dressed as a bunch of cuddly comic book characters.
Hull has gone onesie crazy with Primark selling out. My sister will be gutted I didn't manage to get her one.
I think Christmas should be a time when we enjoy the company of family and friends rather than worrying about how much we've spent on each other this year.
All my little girls want for Christmas are a pair of slippers, I think we should take a leaf out of their book and be happy with a simple present.
All I've got to do is behave for another three sleeps and maybe I'll get my potato peeler.
