It is now December we which can only be one thing, Christmas is coming. This time of year can be expensive but I believe that you don’t have to break the bank to have a good time. Here is my fibe tips I have learnt to save some money and enjoy Christmas without having to worry how to survive January skint.
- When it comes to Christmas food shopping you can get caught up in the overspending and buying far too much for what you need. Limit the luxuries and follow a list. Also exchange say turkey for chicken that alone can save pounds. Swap supermarkets and go to cheaper oone such as Lidl/Aldi but still be tasty but less pricey. Finally, buy a smaller meat and bulk up the meal with veg.
- We all known as soon as your child starts nursery the art work piles up in the masses. So, do something worthwhile with it and recycle into picture frames or make home made cards. People will appreciate the small touches and the effort you have put into making them.
- When it comes to pantomime look at the first night tickets or during the day as they are cheapee. Alternately look for more smaller venues to go as they are more likely to have cheaper tickets. Secondly, when considering a visit to Santa look at what’s on local as there some places that offer free Santa visits such as your local Sure Start Centre or Ikea.
- Browse online for the best deals before instantly dashing out to buy your Christmas presents. A popular place to get a good deal is Boots with 3 for 2 and their Boots advantage card points are the best in the value that I know of.
- As another option you can grab a great bargain of EBay, nothing wrong with second hand and it works, saves a fortune and everyone is happy, win-win.
