Emma Tapping is a UK-based blogger and mom of three. She mostly blogs about saving money and getting deals. She also runs a Facebook page call The Boss Mum. About a week ago, she posted a photo of her Christmas tree to her Instagram, and it's an avalanche of savings waiting to happen:
Tapping received some critical comments on her post from people who think she's spoiling her kids, but then things really got out of hand. A screenshot of her photo got memed and passed around. For example, here it is on Facebook page Take The Piss, along with a damning critique:
That post alone has over 100,000 shares, but it's been shared many other places, along with lots of negativity from people who are spending the time between now and Christmas finding fault with others:
Tapping posted an update on Wednesday, trying to clarify who all the presents are for and to correct other misinformation being circulated in the media:
Basically, it's her money and none of your business. Happy New Year to all!
