I just took a look at my bill for the wines I’ve bought for the big day (and the various other days around it). It was a bit of a shock if I’m honest.
Just wondering if anyone has some handy tips for sticking to a budget over Christmas so that the cost doesn’t get out of hand? Not just money-saving tips, but also suggestions for ways of avoiding spending without realising.
One area we’ve thought about in advance this year: My partner’s family lives in different parts of Canada so we always make a point of chatting to them all if we can. It was a shock to discover last year that a 20 minute call cost over £5 so we’ve pre-scheduled FaceTime and Zoom calls with everyone instead this year (plus we get to show off our Christmas jumpers).
Do let us know if you have any suggestions of your own
