The festive season is here and Kenyans are on a spending mood after all don’t they say ‘Tumia pesa mpaka ikuzoee?’
Their spending habits are on steroids.
It is important to note that come Njaanuary, bills will have to be paid and here are ways you can save some cash and avoid overspending.
Buy your household stuff in bulk
It’s always a good idea to buy stuff in bulk as it saves you both time and money.
2. Look out for discounts
One way of saving some cash this festive season is to buy goods that are discounted. Most shops are offering discounts so take advantage of that.
3. Use your bargaining power
Bargaining is not for the poor, it is a tool everyone is allowed to use.
Instead of using all your money on something you could have gotten at a cheaper price how about you bargain?

4. Window shop
Window shopping is a good way of helping you chose the best option among the many varieties available.
Before you buy something next time how about you window shop.
5. Buy as a group
We have seen women form chamas to buy goods from retailers and wholesalers, that is a sure way of saving some cash on your end.
Don’t let your pride mislead you.
