    erm about £150..probably £200 this year

    but I save up all my coins that I have left in my pocket at the end of the day...Then at chrimbo i put them all in the "coinstar" machine...gives 7p out of every £ to charity...jobs a good un

    OMG how many people do you feed. I probably spend about £100 but thats for more than xmas day. I buy morrisons saver stamps throughout the year.

    Probably nothing unless I find a job pretty soon before my savings run out :-(

    About £100 for the 3 days.

    I saw a family coming of of the local Tesco last years each of them (4) were wheeling a trolley piled as high as it would go, god knows how much it must have cost !!!!!!

    I go to my mums on xmas day, then the outlaws on boxing day - so sweet FA!

    Might be a better idea if people put the number of people their spend covers - just to put it all in proportion?
    Usually about the ton on food for 4 but got rest of family this year so probably double that. Booze often doubles up as gift so moved from one budget to another, distorting figures a bit.

    nothing-will be in lanzarote

    bucket of KFC £9.99 + 1 Bottle of Baileys £9.99 so £19.98 in total

    In a word "no" not unless you are Ken Barlow!



    And I have been so careful with my ID:w00t:....Pleeeeeeese don't make it common knowledge:oops:....... Blanche is well up for the site though:thumbsup:

    I tend to get stuff in the weeks leading up to christmas like mince pies and frozen stuff for buffets etc, and we dont drink alcohol, so it is not that much more expensive than our usual shopping, and we dont really notice the rest since its approx £5 a week for a few weeks, and includes all the offers.

    Helps that we are all vegetarian, so no turkey to buy, and T-Total, so no alcohol to buy

    I think its easier shopping online, you can think twice about all of those impulse buys, which are more common around christmas

    The only hard part is keeping my dad away from the shops - he will buy anything if they put it in christmas packaging!
