Festive money saving tip #1: Start stocking up on food
In just over a month, the kids will be finishing up school for the year. With your children and their friends being around the house more, plus festive meals to plan, it’s time to start shopping smart.
If you see good multi-buy deals at the supermarket, it’s time to take advantage. You can buy and store it for later. If it’s perishable items, you can pop them into the freezer.

as chances are there may not be as lucrative bargains around closer to the festive period.
Festive money saving tip #2: Speak to your family and friends about gifts
It is understandable why many of us like to buy each other gifts, but this means each year the gift list grows. Take the opportunity now to chat with family and friends and arrange a Secret Santa instead.
By picking a name out of a hat or by using a website like elfster.com
you only need to buy one present for a group of people instead of one for everybody.
This can save you lots of money and stops you wasting money on gifts.

or the arrivealive.co.za
route planner to help you organise your journeys.
