As a mum of two, I am all too aware of how expensive family life can be.  My kids don’t ever seem to stop eating, growing out of clothes or wanting something new, and all these costs can quickly add up.  We all need to save a bit of money wherever we can, but I’m not ready to slash my lifestyle or live off value beans on toast like in my student days, so I’ve learnt to make simple smart savings through every day things without compromising my lifestyle. This blog is my way of sharing my money saving ideas with the world.
