You must be as busy as I am with all your Christmas prep – so I will keep this thrifty, short and sweet.
Here are a few frugal things to consider on Christmas day.
- Have a stash of batteries ready from a £ shop. You will be so glad you are prepared in advance – it stops the kids being disappointed and you spending way over the odds at the next available shop to open
- Keep good gift bags and wrapping paper. Whip them to one side ready to recycle next year.
- Any Lego? Keep the boxes and the instructions, these sets can really keep their value.
- Any presents you don’t like? Stash them somewhereso no one notices then squirrel them away to a secret, hidden place. Follow my regifting rules and you will save yourself some money over the coming birthday months
- Not eaten all your Christmas dinner. Use up your leftovers on boxing day with thsi simple but tasty recipe where you simply include lefort over pottoesveg and some beggie crgy to make a great pasty.
There you go, you can even save money ON Christmas day.
