IT’S time to crack open the bubbly – and I’ve got some corking ways to save you cash this New Year.
The big night is here and I’m getting ready to throw a bash that will welcome 2020 in style.
There are loads of ways you can cut back on spending while planning your party.
Here are my top tips . . .
I’ll drink to that: Head to Morrisons for cut-price alcohol.
There’s a two-for-£10 deal on wine and a two-for- £16 offer on crates of beer.
La Gioiosa prosecco is now £7.50 instead of £10.
Or buy Gordon’s Special Dry London Gin, down from £16 to £13, and add juice and lemonade for punch. SAVE: £3 on gin.
Food, glorious food: For canapes, cut Tesco Finest’s Italian salami or Buffalo mozzarella and tomato pizza, £4.50, into small squares and put pieces of Sainsbury’s £2.50 rump steak on skewers.
For crostinis, puree Asda’s 69p peas, spread over toasted slices of Sainsbury’s 85p baguette and add herbs — cheaper than M&S’s £20 luxury canape selection. SAVE: £11.46 on canapes.
Look the party: Take advantage of Tesco’s five-for-four deal on decorations, such as balloons, napkins and plates.
Party Pieces has a decorating kit for £9.99, compared with Party Packs’ £29.94 version. SAVE: £19.95 on a decorating kit.
Game on: At The Works, boardgames Logo and Articulate are both down from £32.99 to £20.
Or why not try a traditional party game?
Play “end of year questions”, where guests write down embarrassing moments or achievements from 2019 and you guess who it is. SAVE: £12.99 on board game.
Tune in: Spotify has great party playlists.
Get a three-month free trial of Premium to avoid ads. It is worth £10.99 a month, but remember to cancel it.
If you are not bothered about adverts, look up playlists on YouTube. SAVE: £10.99 on Spotify.
