This year we have decided on a budget christmas.
It's an excellent idea for frugal people. We have a budget of £20 per person.
The budget has been really interesting. You have the choice of spending it all on one thing, spreading the budget between multiple items and making things to stretch the budget further. I would tell you what I'm making for people...but I'm not letting any secrets go!
Other members of the family feel that a budget makes you look closer at what you're buying for people. You have to spend more time thinking about the person you're buying for a lot more, really think about something special that they'll like. Making things for people is amazingly personal...and cheap!
Have a think about what your family can do to make 2013 a Thrifty Christmas.
