I’m a fan of takeaways. Who isn’t right?! I love being able to just pop online, order some tasty food and put almost no effort in. However, what I don’t love is that a takeaway just blows our food budget for the week!

Now is a great time of year to work on your finances. With payday in sight, so many people are thinking about ways that they can make money go further. I’m a HUGE fan of making extra money, rather than being skint, but I also love moneysaving tips too. Personally I feel that saving money is almost as important as making money. I often find that it takes less time to earn more money than it does to put moneysaving tips into action, however, DO BOTH! I do and it has been working out fantastically for me in recent years!

Once I got over my fears about a supplier going bust and learned that Ofgem would move me to another supplier, without a loss of supply, I decided to *make the leap to Bulb Energy, an energy supplier I had never used before. It has been 6.5 months since I switched and I’m back with the facts and figures on what I have saved in just 6.5 months!

Today I am going to share with your 10 ways to save for Christmas. Christmas is a HUGE deal in my home, and with my family. I most look forward to my husband having some time off work (before, during or after Christmas). My lovely husband is a shift worker so sometimes he works 12 hour shifts over Christmas. To allow for this we often move Christmas to a slightly later date, so we can really enjoy the days together.
