Playing host with the most this festive season? Here’s how you can enjoy that much-anticipated lunch with the family and still save.

1. Stick to the plan

Plan your menu in advance and only buy ingredients for that menu when you get to the shops. Try to avoid coming up with new ideas when you are already at the shops. Stick to the plan.

2. Make your dishes from scratch

Pre-made meals or dishes can be pricey. Buying just one may not be that expensive, but if you are catering for a bigger group, you might end up making a sizable dent in your pocket.

3. Ask your guests to bring a dish

Asking your guests to bring a dish means the burden of catering for a large group does not fall on just one person. It will save you time and money.

4. Make the most of your Momentum Multiply rewards

Momentum Multiply members get up to 12% back in cashbacks at Pick n Pay. If you save your cashback in your Multiply Money savings wallet, you’ll also earn interest on your savings.

5. Work with what you have

Check what you already have in your pantry or cupboards before heading to the shops. You might be able to save on some ingredients by using what you already have.
