Join the Secret Elves to discover the best shopping deals and things to do this Christmas
An prudent Australian woman has wowed her friends on Facebook by explaining how anyone can save hundreds to make Christmas incredible.
She has showed everyone how they can make $1,100 appear without trying – and all they need is a money tin!
The bank balance booster couldn't come at a better time with December always the most costly month for families.
The woman is known only as Courtney and she has taken the internet by storm – revealed just how she keeps the cash, around £600, firmly in her pocket.
"So I am definitely not a saver, but I made it my New Year's resolution to save for Christmas this year," she posted.
"The first week of the year, I went and bought a money tin that I couldn't open.
"Each week when I did my grocery shopping I asked for $25 cash out – because I thought I wouldn't notice an extra $25 on top of our groceries.
"Then I would return home and straight put the notes and coins inside the tin.
"I just opened it and I now have $1,125 (£600) for Christmas!"
She was showered with praise for the simple technique which will certainly make this year's present buying a bit easier.
One said: "What an amazing idea!"
Another put: "I'm going to try this for next year for sure!"
A third added: "Not only Christmas, but the car rego, insurance and service for the car."
