Money Saving Christmas Tips

xmas money saving tips

Christmas is always expensive but there are ways to save money at Christmas. Saving money doesn’t mean you have to become Scrooge, it is possible to create a fabulous time and make everyone feel special without breaking the bank. Try following these few simple tips to save money at Christmas to help you on your way.

  • Use the Tips to Stress Free Christmas Cooking suggestion of planning ahead. By creating menus and thereby shopping lists, impulse shopping is less of a hazard as is dashing out last minute to buy ingredients.
  • Having a shopping list well in advance also means being able to grab bargains, special offers and “Buy One Get One Free” when they appear.
  • Be hard on yourself. Set a budget and stick to it no matter how appealing the fresh lobster looks, if it’s not in the budget or on the menu, NO.
  • Set time aside to surf – not get the board out but surf the internet for online stores that will deliver. This will not only save you money on petrol but on that precious commodity of time. Freeing up time from trawling around stores gives time to plan, create menus and cook. Buying on line also helps limit impulse buying
  • Cook it. It is nearly always cheaper and more fun to cook a dish than dip into the chilled counter at the supermarket or deli.
  • Build recipes for leftovers into your menus for suppers and lunches over the Xmas – New Year season. There’s always turkey and ham left and they make a great soups or curries. Even leftover vegetables can be fried up for a seasonal Bubble and Squeak. Have a look at these creative recipes for leftovers .
  • A great way to save money is homemade food gifts like a jar of jam or marmalade or a box of homemade Christmas Cookies. Homemade gifts are always fun to make and lovely to receive.
  • Don’t be shy. Ask friends or family to bring a contribution to the table, many people love to contribute and an extra bottle of wine is always handy.
