PLAN OUT YOUR CHRISTMAS GIFT SHOPPING AND SAVE NOW!

I don't know about you, but my inbox is full of newsletters from retailers offering free delivery and discounts - all in time for Christmas! Of course they are trying to tempt us to buy, buy, buy - but you can turn this to your advantage. Before things get really frantic and you have to start dashing around the shops, you can sit quietly at your computer and buy your Christmas presents and here's how.
  • Make a list of who you have to buy for.
  • Set a budget for each gift.
  • Browse the larger retailers for ideas.
  • Take advantage of 3 for 2 offers.
  • Make sure you have researched on the internet for free delivery and discount codes.
  • Use your reward or cashback credit card (hopefully you've got one - you should have!)
  • Go through a cashback website such as TopCashback for your purchases - every little bit helps!
This way, even though you have to spend, hopefully it will be carefully planned frugal shopping!
