3 ways to man­age your fes­tive fi­nances

Woman's Own - - Advice Here For You -

1 Use the Quick Scan bar­code scan­ner app (free on itunes and An­droid). Find the best deals with­out run­ning all over town us­ing Quick Scan. Sim­ply scan the bar­code of a po­ten­tial gift and it’ll tell you if it’s cheaper else­where.

2 Only buy nec­es­sary gifts Don’t be made to feel you have to buy gifts. Hone your list to close fam­ily and friends, and for large groups of friends sug­gest ‘Secret Santa’ with a £10 limit.

3 change your mind­set It’s easy to have an ‘It’s Christmas!’ mind­set and tell your­self you’ll just deal with the money im­pli­ca­tions of a fes­tive blowout in the New Year. But don’t throw cau­tion to the wind. Set a bud­get and make sure you stick to it – your Jan­uary fi­nances will thank you for it.
