This one thing frugal mums do can save you £1000!

Have you ever had a renewal quote come through for your car insurance, house insurance, broadband etc, quickly scanned it, thought “yup, that looks ok” and then filed it away and forgotten about it? That used to be me and I cringe now when I think about it. Why do I cringe? Because, when I did this, it was literally like I was throwing money into the bin. Seriously! How could I possibly know that quote looked “ok” when I didn’t even bother to check what any other companies had on offer?!

Get back on track with your budget today.

Do you often get to the end of the month and wonder where on earth all your money went?

But when I stop and think about it, it does kinda make sense. When I was earning a full-time salary I didn’t really need to keep track of my spending because I always knew there was enough to keep me going until the next paycheck. But since becoming a stay-at-home-mum and relying solely on my husbands income, I’ve really started to watch where the pennies go. And I learned a very easy way to keep on top of my spending which I’m going to share with you today… Continue reading “One Easy Way to Stop Overspending Today”
