Spend Well and Ye Shall Get

Credit Card - Jan Roger Johannesen

Too many people spend too much money at the holidays, and we Shopaholics don't support this. Live within your means, we say! And if that means cava instead of champ so you can afford those shoes, so be it. But a better secret for saving follows...

Fool.co.uk's motto is Seriously Good With Money.

And if that's the case, then we aspire to be fools.

One thing they include is the regular feature, Latest Discounts And Deals.

You can check out the latest edition here, and to help encourage you in this nobel pursuit, here's a sample of what they include.

Not bad, right?

And if it gets you closer to the shiny baubles your heart - and your sweetheart's heart - desire, then even better.

Happy smart shopping!
