    Christmas tree chocolate tip:-)

    This might be a really stoopid tip to give but it's what I do and saves a fortune.
    Instead of buying packets of chocolate tree decs for our tree at £1.99/£2.99 for 12 I buy a tin of heros, cleebrations etc... and thread some cotton to each and hang those up. Kids much prefer them as they have more of a choice and it works out cheaper:-D

    Now either ur all gonna say.......'wot's the point' or 'that's wot we all do' lol

    why not just leave an open tin underneath, cheaper than buying the cotton - lol

    Good idea hannah, I have never bought chocs for the tree though, no chance, turn my back for 5 mins and my daughter would have ate them all :lol:

    Why not just not buy chocolates at all? And don't buy a tree... Just cut one down from the park! Hehehe!

    one thing that drives me potty is when people put empty wrappers back in tin, arrggghhh :w00t: oh and the toilet roll on back to front, and no not on the xmas tree silly

    TIP: instead of using cotton, thread the xmas tree lights through the chocs instead,

    this way anyone who tries to steal a choc from the tree will get electrocuted:thumbsup:
