Don’t get carried away with your festive food shop.

  • Compare costs online to see what’s cheapest.
  • Seasonal food is usually cheaper – avoid anything flown  in.
  • Swap brand-name goods for supermarket own-brands.
  • Shop close to closing-time for big reductions.
  • Don’t panic.  The shops are only closed for one day. You need not stockpile!   

The above advice comes from MoneySavingExpert.com. It shows you how you can have a Christmas feast from much less moeny than you think. 

 

When shopping online, try mysupermarket.co.uk. You choose your shopping and then the site shows you how you can save money. It links directly through to all the main supermarkets.
