Money Saving for Mums
And Dads of course, but it doesn’t have the same ring to it!
Christmas feels like a long time ago, and for many of us we’re holding out for January payday.
For some, Money Saving is a lifestyle rather than a fad, but many of us kickstart our Money Saving in January and go from there.
We’ve started the #365daypennychallenge which is saving a small amount each day which surprisingly adds up to a tidy sum by the end of the 365 days (£667.95 to be exact).
We’ve also become very savvy when it comes to food shopping and shop around to get the best deals. We haven’t gone as far as setting up meal plans, but we base our meals around special offers and deals so that we get the most for our money.
I plan to check out our utilities this month to see if we can save money by changing provider.
I’ve already been through our direct debits to make sure that we don’t have any payments for things that we no longer use any more.
Whatever you’re looking to buy or maybe cutting costs on, there will be ways of getting it cheaper if you’re prepared to look.
For some this is just too much which is where sites like Gratisfaction come into play . They take all the leg work for you by listing a variety of deals on websites as well as loads of Free Stuff. They have oodles of categories from including Gadgets, Eating Out and Baby Stuff.
I thought I would have a poke around the site and see what they have on offer for us as a family of four with a dog.
A Free Ice Scraper – Perfect for the weather at the moment.
A Free Little Book of Pain – As a long-term neck pain sufferer this will definitely be worth a read.
A Free Online Cooking Course – When you get to this website there are loads of courses to choose from so I have chosen Social Media Marketing which should cost £395. Total madness but I’ve grabbed it and will let you know how I get on.
A Free Anker Phone Charger – He’s a teenager so no explanation needed.
We no longer have babies at home, but the Baby Section is full of loads of stuff including Weaning Pouches and Drynight’s Disposable pants.
Some of these offers are amazing. I’m especially loving the cosmetic/beauty type offers as I love a bit of pampering so once these arrive I will add them to my treat basket which I dip into when I get the chance.
Pop over to the site regularly as some of the offers are only available for a set number of people before the close.
