Tis the season to be thrifty and in this Christmas Special there's a sack full of tips to help everyone have very merry, but frugal, festivities. From beauty tips to Christmas cooking, from decorations to presents, every possible part of a cut-price Christmas is covered. Crackers created from toilet rolls, tree decorations made from old light bulbs, and a cheap, winter-warming mulled cider are all guaranteed to raise festive spirits. In an attempt to prove that Christmas can still be fun even if you don't splash the cash, one family is challenged to produce a festive buffet for 20 people for just £50.
