The festive season is a time of celebration and relaxation.


During this time, consumers tend to over indulge and ‘break the bank’.


The Western Cape Office of the Consumer Protector (OCP) has launched this annual campaign in order to create awareness about the pitfalls of overspending and poor budgeting, as well as to promote careful spending habits during the festive period.

With clever adjustments to our budgets, living within our means and avoiding false advertising, we can all make it through what can be a challenging festive season.
