10 Obvious Ways to Save Money This Christmas

30 October 2008

This year is unlikely to be any different, but with the economic recession, The Telegraph is determined to save you some hard earned money this holiday season with their special Xmas guide.

On their website, they outlined 10 methods, here's 5 of their points, summarised:

1. Use a cash back card. Duh.
2. Make a budget (and stick to it).  No kidding.
3. BOGOF (Buy one get one free).  HUKD, anyone?
4. Shop with a list. Boring.
5. Gift exchange, instead of buying everyone gifts.  (Probably the only good idea from the list)

For obvious reasons, the guide will not be blowing the minds of savvy consumers like yourself, but it's still worth a reminder.

If you have better tips to save and manage, please share below.

    http://www.find-dvd.co.uk/ most HUKDers know it, but use this site, invaluable if you're buying any media, they don't always get things 100% right tho, so do a HUKD search for the product you require as sometimes there vouchers etc knocking around making things cheaper, also if the site you are buying from is not on quidco, occasionaly you can get cashback via topcashback, which is handy

What do you think?
