How’s everyone getting on with Christmas shopping?
I decided that I wanted everything bought and wrapped by the 1st December this year and I’m not too doing badly at the moment. I have all of Master Frugal’s (apart from a couple of things) wrapped and tucked away and I’m actually just about to open a glass of wine and wrap his sisters tonight which is a vast improvement on my usual last minute Christmas Eve wrapping session!
I’ve been quite sensible this year and have been buying things for the kids each payday since the Summer so I feel quite organised there but I do have a few other presents to buy for my nieces as well as a couple of secret Santa presents to buy/make and a present for my lovely neighbour.
As this is an expensive time of year, I thought I’d try and use some of my Tesco Clubcard points to help pay for some of it and I’m so pleased to discover that I have £15 worth of points left. I wasn’t expecting to see many at all as I used them to pay for lots of out days out as £2.50 worth of points was worth £10 off the entrance fees to some of the places we visited.
I was even more pleased with this as Tesco Clubcard Boost is on at the moment so I can double my vouchers to make them worth £30 which will cover the majority of my last little bits thankfully. It’s really easy to Boost your Clubcard points and you can do it really quickly online and get your vouchers emailed to you whether you want to shop online or in your local store.
I’ve had a quick look on the Tesco site and you can even use them on lots of things that are already discounted. The Health and Beauty gift sets seem amazing value – look at this one for my Secret Santa present reduced to just £2.50:
And what about this for my neighbour? It looks like it costs much more than £6:
And for my nieces, I love the idea of a board game for them but I’m spoilt for choice. Do I go for a classic like Cluedo which is reduced to just £11.33?
Or something much more modern, like Bop It Beats which is the cheapest I’ve seen it anywhere at £15?
Whichever game I choose, I can buy one of my nieces presents as well as my neighbours and my secret santa using nothing but the points I’ve earned for spending where I would have spent anyway!
Now that’s a good deal!
And I’m giving away 500 Tesco Clubcard points (worth up to £20 depending how you use them) to one of you lucky people too. All you need to do is leave a comment below to tell me who you still have left to buy for.
Easy as that!
