Hello world!

This is my very first post yay!! I am a mum of 2 and I am happily married to my husband who I have tolerated for 15 years so far haha.

I have set up this Blog to show how I save money all year round.

I use coupons where I can, cut back on non essentials, cook from scratch and even test products for well known Brands, this in turn saves me £100’s a year.

Happy blogging!


Frugal in the UK

Have you ever sat there and thought about how much money you are currently flushing down the loo daily ? I have a lot,and I decided to sit down and work out exactly how much I am “throwing away”!

An average household spends £96 a week on groceries (family of 4).

I have a family of 4 and I was spending an easy £100 on my weekly shop, although this did include essentials such as deodorant and razors.

I began thinking this was way to much for an average size family to spend each week so I began to go frugal.I now make my own soups, curry’s,stews,casseroles,pizzas plus more!

The saving is marvelous, I have cut my food Bill by nearly half, there are of course other ways I keep my food Bill down and will share during my next blog.

Keep smiling savvy shoppers 😀
