Who's Already Starting for Xmas Either Saving or Buying Ahead.

Ask a Question

Almost half way through the year who has started preparing? Wondering whether to just save money or buy things as I see them. What have you saved already?

I've got some stocking filler gifts and all my wrapping paper stached away so far. A bit each payday helps

Christmas is expensive, and I am also not exactly rich, so I think it's important for me to start saving up really early in the year, such as in January.

In fact, I am one of those people who starts buying Christmas food in September. 🙂

Ive got a few bits but my main prep for xmas is completing surveys and saving the cash from them and being involved in LD collecting points to use towards xmas presents for my grandkids. I am trying to pay for most of their gifts in this way this year. I also save my clubcard and nectar points to do the same. Even if it all pays for half ill be happy 😊

I've bought some stuff back in January when they had a winter sale. Also managed to buy some things on offer with extra gifts before the Yves Rocher site has closed.

We save up a little bit each month for Xmas and it is put into a separate account so we don't miss it. Tbh though our family are still waiting on their Xmas present from last year! Circumstances meant that Xmas went out the window last year and apart from Xmas dinner and the presents my parents bought us we didn't celebrate at all. Xmas lost its magic for us last year, hoping to make this year's more special.

I sort of prepare all year as I often see things in sales that I put away for Xmas gifts. I always get my wrapping paper and cards in the new year sales.

I don't always intentionally start to collect for Christmas but I have put some small things away already. Some of the offers available in November/December are not as good as the offers doing the rounds earlier in the year. When the cost is spread throughout the year it's less stressful.
