A romantic dinner at home

New research from Pick n Pay has revealed that an increasing number of their customers opt to buy quality convenience foods to entertain and dine at home with family and friends. This is supported by a recent poll by Business Tech, which revealed that of 6 022 middle- to high-income South African earners surveyed, 31% said they’d be most willing to cut their spending on eating out and entertainment in 2018 to save money.

If you’ve decided to follow this money-saving trend this year, prepare a romantic candle-lit dinner at home for your partner.
