Have potluck parties
Instead of spending on dining out, dine in instead and get your guests to bring a dish and contribute to the festive meal. Potluck parties are budgetfriendly and relatively easier to handle compared to cooking everything yourself. This way, you’ll be able to minimise your spending while not compromising on good food and great company. Just remember to discuss the menu with everyone first so you don’t end up with six bottles of wine and one Christmas pudding.
