SAVE ON FESTIVE SPARKLE
Plan for Christmas lunch by stocking up on discounted wine and champagne from commercial and industrial auctioneers like GraysOnline (Graysonline.com). At the time of print, cases of Veuve Clicquot Rosé were selling for less than $95 a bottle compared to the retail price of $106. And when it’s time for present shopping, avoid getting caught up in the marketing hype. A pot plant grown from cuttings or a jar of homemade relish costs next to nothing and can really show you care. Above all else, keep some money aside to pay the bills that will arrive in the New Year.
