I’m always on the look out for tips on recycling at home. We have the normal bags and boxes for sorting out the household waste, but I’ve always wanted to go one step further. I suppose you could say that we do have our eco-living ways.
I think it boils down to growing up in a house with not a lot of money. My dad is a mastermind of inventions. He will find a use for anything and everything. It was great fun growing up watching him at work with his ideas. He used everybit of spare wood or metal he could find. Making gates, chicken houses, building sheds… the list is endless!
My mum loves to browse charity shops. She always used to find hidden gems for us as kids. Hardly worn clothes, bags and books, toys. They really did make every penny count. Nowadays as people struggle to keep their heads above water, these eco-living ways are hugely popular. I’m a frugal person who saves everything. I have this thing that I know it could come in useful one day, or as my husband calls it hoarding!

Shopping online can be one of the most convenient ways to buy things. Whether you’re doing your food shop or buying Christmas presents, there’s absolutely no need to leave the comfort of your own home. But you shouldn’t shop online until you’ve read this first. Take a look…
Before you buy anything online, make sure you read reviews. Reviews are going to give you a good idea of whether what you’re buying is actually worth the money. Something might look good on paper, but when you look a little closer, it turns out to be a waste of money. This is why reviews from real customers are so valuable.
Make Sure You’re Getting The Real Deal
Some sites online tend to sell ‘fakes’ designed to look like the real thing. You want to make sure you’re getting the real deal when it comes to shopping online, so make sure you do your research. Research the sites, look at reviews, and see if there are any telltale signs that the product might be fake. For example, there are all kinds of fake charm bracelets on eBay claiming to be Pandora, but you can tell they’re fake on close inspection. Make sure you know you’re buying the real thing before handing over your cash.
Compare On Different Sites
Different sites might offer genuine products, but different prices. Make sure you compare different sites before you buy anything, or you could be missing out on huge savings.
Look For Codes And Offers
If you really want to make huge savings, make sure you look for codes and offers first. Discount codes at Plusvouchercode can come in useful. There are lots of different places you can look, so make sure you take a few minutes before buying to be sure.
Hello all, here is another of my Christmas Wish posts. I wonder if I will get any of these kitchen appliances from my amazing husband. He knows from reading the previous ones that I’m after a coffee machine or a years subscription box, just because I love getting things through my letterbox or even a few items for the home.
But what I would love is a gorgeous toaster. One of those retro kinds, you know the funky pastel colour ones. With of course the matching kettle. Cannot forget the kettle! These type of kitchen appliances are fairly expensive, and you know me, I love to save money.
The “freeconomy” in Britain is thriving, with many adults saving roughly £1,200 each year by using vouchers for money off, freebies, special deals and more.
A study by Halifax Home Insurance showed how the downturn in the economy has taken our nation of people who are smart about looking for bargains, with about a fifth of the people who were quizzed noting that they will rarely buy things that are full price. The top targets for discounts will be deals that you can find on meals, with more than half saving on fast food, restaurants and takeaways, with flights and holidays trailing very closely.
Contrary to a lot of the national stereotypes, about 12% of adults will admit that they haggle to be sure that the price is just right, with about one percent saying that they are actually too embarrassed to utilize discounts. The survey further claims that taking a good deal has turned into more of a social activity, with about 44% of people that are sharing their discounts with friends.
Starting a family is an expensive business. In fact it cost’s an average of £3000 for your new arrival in their first year of life. But at the moment life in general is very expensive for everyone. So we are all out to find the best deals we can possible. I know when I found out we were going to have a baby, my first question was how can we afford one?
Baby’s need lots of equipment so we planned to find the best affordable baby equipment we could. I always hunt for bargains online and one of the websites we discovered sold name branded items at discounted prices. We could save £££’s off a stroller alone!
