In general it isn’t because we can’t save on these item but it’s the old “Buy cheap and buy twice” for me.

Week 6 update and monthly savings total!

I haven’t posted much this week. I’ve been super busy with Uni work and general life (both children are still at home!). We’ve still been cooking though and spending lots of time together.

Week 5 update: Always about the food!

Kids activities on a budget

Part of our monthly budget is on entertainment. It is a small budget but what lockdown 1 & 2 have shown us is that we don’t need a lot of money to have fun! We’re quite lucky in the sense that my children enjoy spending time with us and couldn’t really care less about expensiveContinue reading “Kids activities on a budget”

One month down! I don’t know what happened but, this month and week just disappeared!
