In today’s blog, the Cheapest Life Insurance looks at why it could be beneficial to start saving for Christmas earlier, rather than later.
Christmas is an expensive time for everyone, especially for those who have a big family. So why not start saving today and preparing for next Christmas, to make it more affordable and enjoyable!
Below are some top tips on preparing for Christmas in advance:
- Buy now while there are offers
January is a great time to get bargains ready for next Christmas. You can store the presents away, and by the time Christmas comes along all you will need to do is wrap the presents!
- Try and save every week
If you started saving £10 a week from today, once Christmas Eve has arrived you would have already saved £460! Most people would not even spend this on Christmas presents, so you may even have extra money for the sales next year!
- Write a list
It is very common to find that you have bought more presents than you originally thought, when wrapping presents, especially if you bought some of their presents in advance! So why not write a list of everyone that you need to get a present for, along with how much you want to spend and what present ideas you have for them? Not only will this make you not overspend, but you will be able to work out the exact cost of all the presents you need to buy.
- Be money-wise!
Make sure that you are not overspending now and in the summer months, so that you can save money without realising it. You could even sell things on eBay and treat yourself and your loved ones by buying new things!
By following these simple tips, you could miss the Christmas rush, the expensive presents and have a great stress free Christmas! After all, Christmas is only 328 days away!
