So here are 10 really easy ways to start saving money for Christmas right now. The sooner you start, the easier it will be – so get cracking!

1. Keeping Any $5 Dollar Note and Put It In a Tin

Stay At Home Mum

Grab one of those $2 money tins, and keep every single $5 note you receive. It is now ‘Christmas Tax’. Annoying when you hand over a $50 note and get all $5’s in return, but you have to do it! You can do the same with gold coins if you can’t do $5 notes!

2. Buy a $10 Gift Card Every Time You Do the Food Shopping

Stay At Home Mum

I think that the most expensive part of Christmas is the food. By the time you add up all the little Christmas extras (like the chocolate-covered almonds – yummmm), it can cost a fortune for a single meal! By buying a gift card on top of your shopping every week or fortnight, it is an easy way to accumulate enough gift cards to pay for Christmas food. Just ask at the checkout as you are going through!
