I’m back

It’s been almost 6 months since I last blogged on here. I have just been super busy with uni, family life, Christmas, thesis writing etc. Now thesis is coming to an end, I’m ready to get back to it! I’m going to change things up a bit and pop up a daily spending template onContinue reading “I’m back”

Sunday Dinner on a budget

A few people have reached out to me to ask how I manage to make my roast dinners for so little money. So, I am going to base prices for the recipe on today’s prices at Tesco (that is where I shop). The biggest cost with those who want to save money is when theyContinue reading “Sunday Dinner on a budget”

Week I don’t know!

Hello! Hi! It has been quite a while since I updated the blog. I have been posting on my Instagram pretty much daily but I had my third year Uni placement to complete and with Covid that ended up being more complicated that usual. However, I passed with flying colours, I have submitted all ofContinue reading “Week I don’t know!”

Week 13 update: Painting & baking

Another week, another update. Not a large one this time. In my last post I mentioned I had bought paint for the kitchen. Well, tada! Here it is. It was previously boring and white.

Week 11 short update & Gousto

This is super late! So late that week 12 is coming tomorrow 🤦‍♀️ However, I have just been really busy with the kids off of school for the Easter holidays and Uni deadlines approaching.

Well I would like to say the week was super productive but it wasn’t! I visited B&M twice (for stuff I needed!), collected my order fromContinue reading “Week 10 and monthly savings update!”

On the road to being debt free. Debt and how to tackle it…

Head on is the answer! Burying your head in the sand, binning letters and ignoring phone calls will not help. The letters will still arrive, the phone will still ring, and the debt is probably increasing. I’ve been there. I got out a long time ago but that didn’t mean we still didn’t have debt.Continue reading “On the road to being debt free. Debt and how to tackle it…”

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. The weather was good this weekend so we even managed to sort out the garden after winter killed off all the plants.Continue reading “Week 6 update and monthly savings total!”

Valentine’s & weekly update

Today many of us will be feeling the love ❤️ Whether you are celebrating Valentine’s or Galentines it is always good to do it on a budget. Normally, if we are celebrating something then it will be a trip to a restaurant or a night away. Lockdown put a stop to that and no spendContinue reading “Valentine’s & weekly update”
