Mothers Day on a budget

Written by PayPlan on 16 March 2012

Mother’s Day is just a few days away, a day for us to celebrate all that our mothers do for us. As with all ‘holidays’ like this, many see it as an unnecessary cost, but it doesn’t need to be if you look at our money saving tips! 

The card
It is believed to be a tradition to send cards on days like these, but that doesn’t mean you need to buy them. By making your own card you can personalise it to your Mum’s taste therefore making it more meaningful.

The flowers
It is thought that the average bouquet of flowers cost £34 last year, but there are ways of doing this cheaper. You could visit your local market and collect several smaller bunches of flowers to create your own bouquet, you can them make sure that you get all of your Mum’s favourites in there.

The meal
Instead of taking your Mum out, why not make her a nice home cooked meal, this will not only save you money but means that you can make the day more special for her. You could even bake a cake.

The present
Presents are not a necessity for Mother’s Day, spending time with her or helping her out for a day is often special enough for your Mum. What tips do you have to spend less on Mother’s Day, but still manage to make it special?

      If you live in the UK I would strongly suggest you contact Payplan on 0800 2802816 as calls are free to this number even from mobiles – they can help with the debt issue. A trained adviser will be able to give you tailored advice and put your mind at rest as there are things which can be done. What I can say is that the debt is still live in these countries as you have been paying towards the debt.
