You’re always entertaining and love nothing better than to fill your festive season with parties for friends and family - be it New Year’s Day buffet tables laden with cheeky seasonal nibbles to Christmas dinner with all the trimmings.

2. Young couple decking out first home
You’ve just moved into your first home together and you need to buy everything – from TVs and washing machines to bedding and sofas.
It’s proving to be expensive – even though family are helping out where they can.
