In these frugal times we are always looking at ways to save money. Raising children is not cheap and these days it is more acceptable to shop around to save money. To be honest the husband usually deals with such matters but occasionally I like to see what is happening, especially if I can save us money which can be spent on more interesting things!
Ways to save money
- Do a weekly meal plan and weekly shop – this should hopefully mean you always have a delicious meal planned and don’t have to make an emergency run to the supermarket when your children are hungry.
- Use your local library – free sing and story time sessions are great for bored toddlers who need to let off a bit of steam.
- Don’t pay full price for theme park tickets or meals out – search online for discount vouchers and don’t forget to take them with you!
- Shop around – not only for household bills but also for children’s clothes and toys and save a fortune.
