Family Money Saving Ideas!

Like any Mummy, I am always looking for ways to save money. Here are some of my top tips that I have gathered over the years!

  • Buy toiletries and household supplies in shops like Home Bargains/B&M Bargains etc, so much cheaper.
  • Plan every meal in advance before going to the supermarket, only buy the actual ingredients you need, save treats for weekends.
  • Buy nappies through Amazon and get them delivered to your door. If you subscribe you can save even more money.
  • Pampers New Baby Size 2 Mini Nappies - 2 x Economy Packs of 62 (124 Nappies) 
    • Rather than paying for expensive baby groups etc, find out about your local children's centre, where activities usually cost around £1.
    • Take drinks along in a sippy cup for your child wherever you go, saving on buying drinks out.
    • Buy stuff on ebay.
    • If you can't find what you need on ebay use discount codes wherever possible from sites like hotukdeals and buy online.
    • Use quidco when buying online to earn cashback.
    • Find out about local discounts, e.g. in Leeds there is a Leeds card which entitles you to discounts on all local attractions, swimming etc.
    • Children would honestly rather spend a week on the beach in the UK than be roasted alive on holiday in Spain.
    • Create a blog and ask for freebies and discounts on things you like then write about them on your blog! 
    • Certain professions, e.g. teachers can get free entry into attractions, take proof of employment (works abroad too!).
    • Print your photos using online websites, not in those instant machines.
    Please post any more you can think of!
