Chrisco versus Supermarket

At least 2 friends of mine who had previously had Chrisco have in the past 2 years direct credited that money into their regular supermarket xmas club. It has enabled them to use those funds to buy weekly groceries from Dec 1 getting what they want when they want it for approx 2 months and use the normal grocery money for laybys, xmas shopping and outings in the holidays making xmas far less stressful money wise with less wastage as a lot of the Chrisco hamper was not good value or useful items.

Best Way to Save for Xmas

Go for Pak N Save or even Countdown Xmas Clubs. The interest rate is better than the banks. Basically with these you could stop paying for groceries in December and January and use your Xmas Club only. Then using the money you would spend on food etc use it wherever you want, paying cash for xmas presents etc.
