1) Create a budget and stick to it
When it comes to Raya shopping, it’s easy to get carried away with all the excitement and festivities.

Consider meaningful yet inexpensive homemade gifts like baked goods, flower arrangements, or personalised cards.

As the saying goes, why pay more when you can get it for less? It’s true that it is not always necessary to spend a lot on festive decorations to create a beautiful and welcoming space. Why not give yourself a try to get creative and make your own decorations this Raya?
Opt for DIY ideas that can easily be made at home with recycled materials while creating memories with your families and kids that will last forever. Not sure where to start? How about collecting old items like angpau packets, used jars, and fabrics from around the house to repurpose and add charm to your house?
3) Cook at home

Preparing your own Raya meals instead of eating out is another great way to save money. This can be especially helpful when cooking for a large family, as it gives you the opportunity to share favorite family recipes and traditions.
