Festive Season Saving Tips
It’s that time of the year again. Holidays galore. Festivities abound. We letting loose and letting down our hair. There’s just one problem. It’s a rough-and-tumble economy that will turn on you faster than an irate serpent you’re holding too tightly.
How do you decide on how to save, what to buy, what to not? Well, being a tough economy, you need to look at a few things.
Do I stay or do I go now?
Maybe considering the economic situation, going away isn’t the best idea. Staying in JHB will definitely save you on petrol costs associated with travelling vast distances. Plus, the fact that the city will be empty contributes to cost-savings. You won’t often be stuck in the lower gears. If you’re looking for ways to entertain yourself, visit our mall and see what we have on the go.
Concerts in the cinema.
You don’t need to see live shows, whether operas, symphonic orchestras, or the ballet. You can watch them cheaper at our Cinema Nouveau. We often have the best screenings of captivating live performances you can enjoy on our excellent sound system with the clarity you’d expect on our screens. Just add popcorn and nice cold Coke, and you have a recipe for a fun night out. Getting some culture doesn’t have to cost you.
No, we don’t mean getting a field promotion because your commanding officer got hit by a sniper. We mean the promotions we do to drive sales of a product, whether old or new to market. The savvy shopper will find there’s much to like. Plus, the franchise stores in our mall often have group promotions on the go. Look out for them, you could end up saving a lot of money. Keep your ear to the ground: we have specials on all the time.
Throw your own party.
Rather than going out on New Year’s, and spending a fortune on drinks at expensive clubs, why not bring in the New Year at home with a select group of friends? You can buy booze for excellent value at Pick ‘n Pay Liquor. Far cheaper than out where they cost you your arm and both your legs. You can also find party supplies like treats for your guests at Pick ‘n Pay proper too. Chips, balloons, sweets, chocs, and soft drinks for those who don’t like to imbibe. And, of course, there’s plenty of delicious pizza at Andiccio’s.
Visit the market.
The Sunday Rooftop Market is full of hidden gems at great value. For instance, if you’re looking for a book to read, you may find some second-hand dealers selling classics of yore not easily found anymore for a quarter (or more) of the price of a new book. You could walk away with a pile of them in your hands. If you’re looking to spruce your home up, you’re sure to find decorative features at the market too. And quality foods, and so much more.
All at good value.
We hope our advice helps. These are tough times for everybody. But there are still ways to make your money go further.
Enjoy our mall, and if you shop wisely, you’ll still be able to get what you need without breaking the bank.
