Want to know how to cheekily save money this Christmas? Whether it be on Christmas presents, parties or food… the team at JUNO have got you sorted.

Check out our tips and tricks (mainly tricks) on how to cheekily save money below:

  1. Refill expensive wine bottles with cheap wine - that way YOU get to enjoy it!

  2. Split up with your partner for the month of December. You’re bound to save coin that way.

  3. Re-gift bad presents from last year (let’s be honest, we’ve all been here). The key to this is to make sure you don’t re-gift to the same person who gave it to you… because that’s going to be seriously awkward!

  4. Put a cheap piece of jewellery from Kmart or The Warehouse into a jewellery box from Partridge Jewellers. She’ll never know.

  5. Leave all your Tupperware containers in the office to take home any leftover nibbles and meals from Christmas functions.

  6. Go missing! A drastic, yet strategic move. If you’re not around, then you don’t have to buy anyone presents.

  7. Save tags and labels from everything you buy during the year, and then put them on all your second-hand shop purchases.

  8. Have your gifts wrapped in-store – or find one of those wrapping stalls in the mall and get every single present wrapped. Not only will this save you money, but also time!

  9. Change religion. That way you don’t need to celebrate Christmas at all.
