Christmas is just around the corner and with it all the extra expenses on gifts, food and travel. In a time of crisis like the one we are in, reducing these expenses is usually a necessary effort. Today we offer you some tips on how to save money this Christmas.
One of the things that usually requires the most money is food. Christmas is usually a time for special dinners. To save on food shopping, it is very important to go to the food market well in advance.. The closer we get to Christmas, the more expensive the food we are going to eat will be. Some items can double or triple in price at Christmas time, such as lamb or suckling pig.
In addition to food, decorations and gifts are another costly item.
In terms of decoration, one way to save a lot of money is to using the one from the previous year and including some handicrafts in it. such as homemade candles, strips of paper, handmade Christmas balls, etc.
When buying gifts, we must also be careful with the price. In order to save on this point it is important that don't go for the first thing you see and avoid branded and heavily marketed items.. There are gifts that are not sold so much in stores and whose price is much lower. For example, if we are going to buy the typical Lego pieces for children, we can look for a brand that offers the same at a lower price.
The last thing to worry about when it comes to saving money at Christmas is the parties. Most places where Christmas parties are held tend to have quite high entrance fees. To avoid this big expense we can opt for renting with our friends or family a place to stay in which to organise the party on our own.
