Saving money during Christmas is not the norm as this period is a time to share gifts with friends and family.
As many go on spending sprees, they often end up broke and bankrupt by the time the new year is ushered in. To prevent the draught from hitting your account, Jovago.com, Africa’s No 1 hotel booking portal shares 5 ideas that can help you save money this festive period.
Make a shopping list
The malls in Lagos are flooded with goods for potential customers. They are expecting you to visit their stores to empty the shelves when you go Christmas shopping. If you randomly stop by any of them, the possibility of spending beyond your capacity is high. So, it is advisable to draw up a list before you do any shopping.
Book and Shop online
Buying products on the internet is trending in Nigeria these days. You can book hotels online in any city in Nigeria, order for food as well as purchasing services on the internet. Aside from quality being guaranteed, you are also assured of the best and competitive prices. That’s why Jovago, Jumia, Hellofood, Carmudi, Lamudi, Easy Taxi and Kaymu are among the top platforms for online transactions in Nigeria presently.
Take advantage of discount vouchers and coupons
One benefit of shopping online is that you get amazing discounts, vouchers as well as coupons. For example, Jovago, a hotel booking portal in Lagos is offering various amazing offers on hotels in different parts of the country this festive season! Before you make the down payment on any item, hunt for a coupon and try to save some cash in the process.
Organise a potluck gig
If you are keen on organizing a party, make it a potluck. At this type of parties, nobody asks for more as whatever you provide is believed to be enough for the attendees of the gig. This doesn’t mean that the gig will be poorly planned but it will be a low budget one and you can get away with serving finger foods as well.
Remember the January hangover
January is usually financially tight for many because of the December spending. To prevent this hangover, it is advisable to spend wisely and reasonably this festive period.
