It’s that time of year again when we try to keep Christmas within some kind of budget so we can afford our bills after Christmas. We buy presents that only last 5 minutes like horrible Christmas jumpers. We also buy food that gets thrown away. I’ll be looking for good value in the run up to Christmas and because I have been thrifty and frugal all year I can afford a few luxuries at Christmas!
Summer savings on clothing
I did some laundry this morning, so I have clean tee shirts for the weekend. In the hot weather, we not only need to change our clothes often but also be careful about colours. Lighter colours reflect the sun and so we keep cooler. I bought 3 black tee shirts for £9 not long ago, but I won’t be wearing them this weather. You can make summer savings on clothing by shopping at discount stores like Matalan, they have basic tee shirts for around £4 or more stylish one cost a little more.
