Cut the cost of Christmas dinner

THAT’S the meal we’ve all looked forward to, but the cost of a Christmas dinner is always soaring.

It’s not uncommon for families to spend up to £100 on a huge festive feast, with turkey, shredded meat and plenty of snacks.

But don’t make money from saving. Cut costs with our helpful tips…

SIZE PROBLEM: Consider a crown or bones instead of the whole bird, and frozen is often cheaper than fresh. Aldi has been the trump card in this year’s supermarket turkey price war, with fresh birds available for just £6.90 (£3.45/kg). Or you can buy frozen from just £2.43/kg. Farmfoods sells large pre-roasted whole turkeys from £2.40/kg, extra large options from £2.22/kg.

GOOD PRICE: Festive staples from both Aldi and Lidl are just 19p from today. Aldi’s price applies to its Christmas Super Six, which includes 1kg of carrots, 2kg of white potatoes, 500g of radishes, 500g of Brussels sprouts, red or white and Swedish cabbage.

GO ROGUE: Try Christmas dinner on a pizza. Domino’s sells The Festive One from £19.99 for bulk. It’s topped with onion sage and turkey, Cumberland sausage, and crispy bacon. A handful of stores will even be open on Christmas Day.

TOP TIP: Need a drink selection? Get 12 bottles for £5.42 each, a free bottle of Prosecco, four Dartingtons and delivery, all for £65 with Laithwaites. You’ll need to cancel your plan if you don’t want future boxes. Visit laithwaites.co.uk.

ASSIST: £110.87

BUSTER BRAND: For extras, such as condiments, check out the supermarket’s own brands to beat Christmas dinner inflation. Ocean Spray cranberry sauce costs £1 at Asda, but the store’s own brand is only 50p. The supermarket also has a two-course mix and match promotion for £2 on the Special range of sauces, chutneys, gravy beads and stuffing mixes.
