How I'm Prepping For Christmas And A Hello Fresh Giveaway*

I'm sure I've said this in many posts over the last few weeks but how fast has this year gone?! I genuinely can't get over that we're in December now and Christmas is only a few weeks away. As Christmas is just around the corner I'm really trying to get sorted now and I've been prepping for a good few weeks so I've teamed up with Hello Fresh to tell you all about it! Keep reading to see how I'm preparing for the festive season and I also have a giveaway at the end of this post where you can win your own classic box!

How I'm Prepping For Christmas

One thing I've been doing for a few weeks now in preperation for Christmas, is stocking up early! This is something I do every year and it just makes life much easier. Once the Christmas food comes out in shops, I start picking bits up each week in the food shop and I store anything I can in our spare room. It means that room looks like a bomb has hit it for a while but it's worth it. I like to get as many tubs of chocolate, bags of crisps, bottles of bucks fizz etc as possible, so not only are we prepared in plenty of time, it also spreads the cost out really well! I dread to think what our food shop would cost the week of Christmas if I didn't do this each year. I also like to get any frozen stuff we need a few weeks in advance so things like pigs in blankets, vegetables etc don't even really need to be thought about until the day. This means when we get our Christmas food shop we can just focus on all of the fresh stuff we need and we don't need to worry about things not been in stock and missing out.
- Something else I like to do to prepare for Christmas and save as much money as possible is try and earn vouchers. I mentioned this in my latest money saving post but sites where you can earn money and vouchers for doing surveys is brilliant for this time of year. I've managed to get loads over the last few months and it's meant that I've been able to get bits from places like Marks and Spencers for absolutely nothing and it's been such a massive help.

- The last thing I'm currently thinking about now for Christmas Day is all of the timings for Christmas dinner! The food is one of the best bits of the day isn't it? so I want to get it right and I always like to try and out do the year before. I'm already thinking about what I'll be cooking first and what will need to defrost, just to make everything a little easier for me on the day. There's no doubt about it, making Christmas dinner can be such a stressful thing but it really doesn't have to be this year as Hello Fresh have put together a Cheat Sheet to help you with it all.
