ALTHOUGH Christmas is supposed to bring us joy, for many the festive season comes with dread and frustration over their finances.
The soaring cost-of-living crisis has forced millions of households across the world to cut expenses wherever possible – and the festive winter celebration is no exception.
Heaps of gifts for friends and families often tend to be the most expensive aspect of Christmas – but fortunately, one thrifty mum has shared her favourite finds from Home Bargains.
The best part? Not only will your children love it but they're all under a tenner too.
Beth, better know to her 47k fans on TikTok as The Budgeting Mum (@budgetingmum), listed her top buys from the retailer.
In her video, The Midlands-based shopper first recommended a Disney Princess Mirror set which came with loads of colourful lippies and a heart-shaped mirror.
