My top tip for saving money at any time of year is to always look online for who is offering the best deal on whatever it is you are looking for. From Easter eggs to a joint for your roast dinner, always check out each shops special offers before you go shopping.
That might mean shopping in more than one store, but if you plan ahead, it can save you money. Do take any travel costs into consideration though!
If you are visiting family in the holidays, and are using public transport, always try to travel at off peak times. Just waiting until 9.30am in some cases can cut the cost of your tickets.
Homemade treats and cards will work out much cheaper than shop bought versions and if you have children, they will love to help create them too… win, win!
