Save money and shop for Christmas at the end of Christmas

When Christmas is over, start preparing for next year and you will save a heap. Decorations will be going out for next to nothing. Christmas cards and decorations will be sold much cheaper. Start Shopping for Christmas

Anyone can go to a store and buy one of those so-called plastic Christmas trees, or you can go further out of town and purchase a precut tree sold by thrifty sellers out to make a few extra dollars. Instead why not create your own, so you have something different to other people and have something to be proud of because it is your own creation.

Christmas is the time to make your own greeting cards and enlist the kids help. They will love it, and it will amuse them and save you money. Crafts - Greeting cards

Favorite recipes to try this Christmas

Ice Cream Christmas cake

If you are looking for something different this year, then this is a simple and quick one to make for Christmas. Best prepared 2 days before needed. Recipe

Quick easy Fruit Mince Pies

Be a little creative and make your own pies this year. You can make them several weeks before Christmas and put in freezer until needed. I find the bought ones too rich for me. Recipe

Ginger Bread Men

This is a great one for the kids to help you make. They will love cutting them out and putting faces on the little men. Recipe

Stay safe this Christmas

Christmas is a time for joy and celebrations often bringing families together for the first time in years? We all spend days and weeks cooking, planning and preparing meals, and festive activities for that special day. It is one of the world’s busiest times for businesses of all sorts. Avoid these Dangers

You need a sense of humour for this one.

Avoid the stress of Christmas

Don’t you just hate all the things you have to do before Christmas? You rush about for weeks cleaning up your home, washing all the bed linen and curtains. Spend hours doing all the cooking and stress out before the day. Find out how

      I love Christmas, but often don't get round to shopping until Christmas Eve anyway, so I get some good bargains!

      lol. I agree. I usually don't plan any kind of shopping during christmas season. Two reasons. Any items you have to buy, they'll be cheaper on non-holidays. Another reason, it's not crowded. Saves you the headache.

      lancelonie, thanks for stopping by. Yes that is the best time to start shopping at the sales. They have to slash the prices to get rid of the stock.

      It's almost here! I love the season!

      I think after this year's Christmas, that's when I'll start buying stuff for sale. I'm pretty sure my daughter will want them more next year. :)
