Christmas money saving tips

Christmas just around the corner. Central Liverpool Credit Union has produced 5 tips to help you budget this festive season.

[wpcdt-countdown id=”470″]

1. Work out your budget. The average household will spend £475 on gifts, £110 on food and drink, £30 going out, £20 for travel and £17 on decorations.

The Money Advice Service has produced a calculator to help you work out how much you will need.  Its important to agree (and stick to) a spending limit.

2. If you will be travelling by train, book tickets in advance now. You’re guaranteeing yourself a seat during the busiest time of year and can save up to 50%.

3. UK shoppers face most expensive Christmas dinner in a decade. Use a supermarket comparison site to find where to get the best deals. Although they are becoming harder to find, independent greengrocers can work out cheaper than big retailers.

4. Shop at outlets. Money Saving Expert has produced a handy list of 50 big name discounters

5. Plan for next Christmas. Your Credit Union provides a Christmas Club account. If you started saving in January just £5 per week would net you £235 by 1st December 2019. Double that to £10 and you’ll have almost £500 to spend.

 

 

 

 

Christmas loans

Christmas loans from Central Liverpool Credit Union: There’s only 11 weekends until Christmas!

The cut-off date for Christmas loans is 26th October. If accepted a loan received by this date is guaranteed to be paid in time for Christmas.

We will still look at loans for Christmas until 20th December. However there is no guarantee that these will be paid out before 25th December.
