With only a week to go until our children will be rushing down the stairs to see if Santa Claus has been to visit, many UK residents might be a little worried about cash flow over the Christmas period, especially since most will have no choice but to take a few days off work. Still, I’m a pretty resourceful chap, and so I’ve decided to write an article today with the express purpose of helping you out. The information below could make a real difference to the quality of your celebrations over the next few days, so make sure you pay attention and consider every little bit of advice I have.
The last thing anybody wants is to run out of funds by boxing day, so you’ll need to start making plans now if you truly want to benefit from my savings tips. This isn’t going to be easy my friends, but with the right attitude and a little bit of luck, I’m confident you can all have a truly fantastic Christmas break.
Avoid Popular Branded Clothing
Most of us will probably head out down the shops at some point and buy a new outfit for any parties or nights in the pub we might attend. Retailers know this and so they tend to inflate their prices a little over the Christmas period. This means you definitely need to stay away from popular brands and try to purchase budget items wherever possible. It will mean you need to spend longer searching through stores, but in the end, it will be worth it. Last night I nearly bought a moleskin coat for £80; glad I didn’t go through with it though because half an hour later I saw something very similar for 30. The only difference? No Italian designer name.
Look For Deals And Offers
Most supermarkets will have deals at this time of year for anyone willing to buy their shopping in bulk, and so this is something you should consider. Opting to buy everything from one shop will almost certainly save you money (and effort to be honest). Alternatively, maybe you’d like to check out some of the coupons and vouchers that can be found online at SumoCoupon.com.
Turn The Heating Down
I realise it can be tempting to have your heating on full blast over the month of December, but this really isn’t essential, especially when you can buy the entire family thick Christmas jumpers for next to nothing. So long as you’re all in the same room wearing winter appropriate clothing you’ll all be fine.
Stay Away From Pubs And Clubs
You might think it’s sociable to meet your friends in the pub for a drink, but when the prices you’re paying are ten times that which you would part with when purchasing alcohol from the supermarkets, this seems a little silly. Remember, they don’t even let you smoke anymore, so what’s the point?
Well folks, I’ve got to head off now and start wrapping presents for the kids. I hope you’ve found the money saving tips useful and will have a slightly better Christmas because of them.
See you next year!
