Christmas is an expensive time of year for all, and this often leads to lots of pressure to buy items outside of our budgets, there are lots of different ways to get good deals on items as well as going low cost for some items and sharing some of the responsibility too – for example, instead of getting the Christmas shop from Morrisons or Sainsbury’s head to Aldi – there are great deals to be had.
https://www.mysupermarket.co.uk/ is a great price comparison for supermarkets. On the site you can type in the item and it tells you how much each supermarket is selling it for – getting the best deal for you.
If you’re having family round for Christmas dinner, why not ask guests to bring a food contribution? This shares the responsibility around and it gives you all kinds of options for food too.
Gifts from Charity shops and homemade gifts can be just as good and also really thoughtful. Collage or scrapbooks made of family photos can be very appreciated, as well as knitted items and embroidery.
Groupon, Living Social and Wowcher are great sites to search for some cheap deals and the perfect place for an alternative present.
But most of all, its about spending time with your loved ones – not the gifts – so enjoy the lights, the laughs, the smiles and the time with those you love and have a very Merry Christmas
