Bargain Hunting #28


With Christmas round the corner, many people have started to put up there Christmas decorations. If you are like me, I wait until a few days into December to put mine up. Christmas decorations can be expensive so here are some money saving tips to save money this Christmas.

Make your own - From bunting to salt dough decorations you are able to make your own at the fraction of the price the shops would charge. You can make it in to a fun day and get creative with your children or the rest of the family. For ideas do a web search.

Set a budget - There is nothing worse than thinking you have overspent meaning you are short of money for other things. When shopping for decorations set a budget and stick to it. Do not give in to temptation and when buying question in your  head do you really need it.

Offers - Many shops at the present moment are doing 3 for 2 deals and reducing items also. Shop around and find the best deal, don't buy the first thing you see. See if you can use any voucher codes or vouchers you have saved up over the year to help purchase your items to make them that tiny bit cheaper.

Limit the use of lights - Lights are pretty however do not go to OTT or you will be footing a hefty electricity bill. Stick to minimum and use other decorations to wow your guests.

Prepare - After Christmas a lot of Christmas decorations will be sold off cheap. If you can make do with some decorations you have this year then why not wait until after Christmas and buy new? This will save you a lot of money.
