Only siphoning off money: New Year's Eve expenses that aren't really worth it

New Year's expenses

New Year's holidays are a time filled with fun, pleasant surprises, vivid impressions and warm gatherings with family and friends. But it is also a period that requires significant financial expenditures, and not everyone can satisfy the "New Year's needs".

But OBOZ.UA has found out what holiday expenses can be reduced. Under the influence of marketing strategies and advertising, people start buying a lot of things that they don't use, so you need to think about all your purchases.

A live Christmas tree

If you want to save money, it's better to spend once and buy an artificial Christmas tree that you will use every year. This will also save you the hassle of cleaning, installing, and transporting a real Christmas tree.

Gift sets

It is customary to buy gifts for family and friends during the holidays, and most often gift sets appear on store shelves before the New Year season. But if you compare the cost of the set and buy all the components separately, it will be much cheaper. You can also make beautiful wrapping yourself using festive paper and shiny ribbons.

Food

Hostesses try to set the table generously and come up with interesting dishes to surprise their family and friends. But usually the food is not eaten and a lot of food has to be thrown away. You can save a lot of money if you prepare the amount of food that can be eaten in an evening.

Outfits

Don't buy clothes for the New Year just because you want to wear something new. Choose an outfit that you can wear to other events.

Traveling

If you have planned a trip for the New Year holidays, it is better to buy tickets and book accommodation in advance. Because prices are rising and what you could get at a lower cost will cost two or even three times more.

New Year's souvenirs

Most people buy various souvenirs with a symbol of the next year, but they are impractical and will most likely become another thing that will collect dust on the shelves. It is better to choose universal jewelry that you can use for the next New Year's holidays.

Earlier, OBOZ.UA told you how to decorate the front door for the New Year to surprise your neighbors.
