The deed was done though and the holiday had been purchased - there was no going back; so I had to try and eliminate any bad feelings and try to look forward to it. A whole week, just the three of us, no work, and lots of sunshine. I then started thinking about different ways we could be savvy shoppers leading up to the holiday; to save us some dosh when we did the weekly shop or started buying holiday clothes. Now, I love a voucher code, however I am not one of these people who buys stuff just because there is a voucher/saving out there, as that would defeat the object of trying to save some cash! If I have made up my mind that I need to purchase something I will search the Internet for a deal or voucher.
By doing so, I saved around £100 in discounts on stuff I was planning to buy anyway for the holiday. I also did this for the first time last Christmas and calculated a saving of around £250 on presents I was planning to buy anyway! I know there are a lot of websites and blogs out there that you can search to find good deals and online discount codes, however, I thought I would share some of my best picks of the deals out there at the moment that will be of interest to those with families. Just to help others like us who may be counting the pennies.
