2. Looking for a real Christmas tree for £5? 

Why not to visit your local IKEA and pay £25 for a nice (5’7  – ca. 170 cm )Xmas tree to get £20 voucher to use between 12th of January – 16th of February in participating IKEA store. Hurry up as this offer lasts until 23nd of December but in previous years the tree were gone well before 23rd…

Christmas Money Saving Tips

3. Getting more of No7 for less?

Get £38 worth of cosmetics from No7 for only £12. How?

Buy 2 selected items form No7 line (two cheapest cosmetics cost £12 together ) to get a FREE ‘Bubble of Beauty’ – a small set which includes a msacara, eyeliner, serum and lip crayon all worth as much as:

‘Dramatic Lift’ mascara, 4.5ml – worth £8.68 based on full-sized 7ml version.

‘Stay Perfect’ liquid eyeliner in black, 1.7ml – RRP £8.50.

‘Protect & Perfect’ serum, 5ml – worth £3.10 based on full-sized 50ml version.

Matte lip crayon in ‘Raspberry’, 1.3g – worth £6.12 based on full-sized 2.5g version.

This may be a super nice Christmas present for yourself or someone close 🙂

I also noticed that some sets have really good prices e.g. http://www.boots.com/en/No7-Lift-Luminate-Collection_1900209/ – right it is £55 but as I need to travel abroad for Xmas I will have to remove its package and prepare a new one once I am back in my country. I believe this will allow me to separate these cosmetics and create not much more expensive  presents sets with more cosmetics for cheaper price ( I was originally willing to buy some creams separately but it does make more sense to buy this set and separate the cosmetics 🙂
