Hey it’s nearly Christmas! Santa’s grotto for the kids, office Christmas parties for the grown-ups and lots of lovely gifts from our loved ones. But as we all know, Christmas can be pretty expensive and a time when bargain hunting becomes all the more important.
As we scour the stores for those irresistible bargains we find there are millions of ways to save our hard earned cash but are the supermarkets offering us false savings with their ‘buy one to get two free’ deals?! I don’t usually need ONE let alone THREE but isn’t it an offer too good to resist? However seductive ‘something for nothing’ is, call me weak, but I find this particular deal a complete nightmare to refuse!
I like to reduce my costs by enjoying discounts on my spending. I find that by turning the other cheek at the supermarket I don’t tend to fall prey to the allure of the ‘buy one get two free’ deals with the devil…in order to save money, I just stick to what I need.
Through this method I find I have less waste at the end of the week because I am actually buying what I know I need to consume and save money for all those other necessities in life such as petrol, clothing and nik naks.
Saving money is seductive and the good news is there are better, more effective, ways to save money. For instance, I save money by buying cheap ink cartridges. By replacing my original ink cartridges for some compatible ink cartridges to use in my printer I save a lot of money and believe it or not, they are just as good and I don’t waste a drop!
