Save your cash rather than borrow to make a great Christmas. You know the big day’s on the horizon so put some cash away each month. Buying presents for loved ones when there are offers across the year spreads the cost of Christmas and gives you more for your money.

Setting a budget is a way of making sure you don’t overspend. It’s far too easy to chuck your cash around in December (partly because most of us get paid earlier in the month during December) but that will leave you short. The most important thing about budgeting is to stick to the budget. Don’t go spending more than you’ve allowed for because you feel like it.

Secret Santa at work is an extra cost that most of us have to deal with at Christmas time. Why not limit the amount spent on the present to something low like £5. Discuss this with your colleagues and set a realistic limit so you all get the same amount spent on each other.
