Don’t forget about your rent this Christmas


The cost of Christmas can ruin the festive fun if you go over your budget, especially if you spend your rent money. With a little planning and creativity you can keep costs under control - read below for some handy hints and tips: Gifts

  • Stick to a budget. Don't be tempted by items which are not on your list.

  • Set a family spending limit. Why not set up a ‘Secret Santa’ this year?

  • Shop ahead online and save. Do your research early and look out for voucher codes.

  • Make your own presents. Save cash with homemade gifts.

  • Cover all bases. Remember to ask for gift receipts.

  • Join a Credit Union. Keep your savings and loans in check for the New Year.

Food and Drink

  • Plan meals ahead. Get frozen items in advance.

  • Don’t panic-buy. Shop smart when supermarkets reduce their prices.

  • Shop with friends. Save money by bulk-buying items and sharing discounts.

  • Leave the Turkey. Turkey is more expensive at Christmas - try chicken or other meats this year.
