How to make the ultimate Christmas buffet for 10 people & spend £25 on food – and it's all thanks to bargains from M&S | The Sun

PRESENTS, decorations and hungry guests to feed – Christmas is certainly the most expensive time of the year for many families.

But luckily, one cash-savvy foodie, Kathryn Leech, has proved you can easily have a scrumptious festive feast on a budget this year – and no, it's not by doing your shopping at Aldi.

With Christmas right around the corner, the money-saving whizz, from Manchester, advised to check out your local Marks & Spencer instead.

Although this high-street retailer may not necessarily be the first shop to spring to mind when it comes to shopping on a budget, Kathryn recently revealed it's even cheaper than rival supermarket Tesco – and some of their items, such as eggs, are less pricey than elsewhere.

''When shopping at M&S, taking full advantage of their multi-buy deals is the way to save the most money whilst getting the best products!

''Shop smarter not harder! You can enjoy M&S quality food, for a very affordable price,'' she said in an exclusive chat with Fabulous.
