Do you love the convenience of shopping online? Me too! I love that I can shop while my baby naps and have the postman deliver it. Hassle free shopping without dragging the kids around with me is fab!

And if you’re not out in the shops, you’re less likely to pick up unnecessary extras that you really don’t need which will save you money, right? Well, not quite. Online retailers are definitely jumping on the bandwagon with tempting you to add purchases to your basket that you don’t need (or weren’t planning). And they’re also very good at knowing which techniques to use to urge you into making that purchase before you check elsewhere and do your research.

There are very easy techniques you can apply every time you shop online to make sure you’re getting the best deal, saving the most amount of money and using these online retailers’ techniques to your advantage.

Hands up, who else’s grocery costs are a huge chunk of their monthly outgoings?! Now, hands up, who doesn’t even know how much they’re spending on groceries each month?? You’re not alone, trust me! I bet if I asked 10 people how much they spend at the supermarket each month, at least half of them wouldn’t be able to tell me (or would only be able to give me a rough guess).

That’s a good place to start if you’re overspending consistently on your weekly shop. But today I’m talking you through 3 specific mistakes you’re making at the supermarket which are costing you money. And, don’t worry, I’ll also be sharing how you can fix these mistakes!

6 Step Plan to Slash Your Grocery Spending

Need to save money on groceries? Here's one easy way to save yourself hundreds of pounds. Groceries | Shopping | Save | On A Budget | Make Savings | Save Money | Slash | Spending | Cut | Reduce | For Families | Compare | Branded | Generic | Frugal Living
How much could you save after implementing these changes?

I used to be a ‘brand snob’. I don’t even know if that’s a ‘thing’ but it’s certainly an accurate description. I would only buy brands because “Well, they’re the best aren’t they? The cheaper alternatives can’t possibly be any good.”

Oh how wrong I was!

And oh, how I cringe at the money I could’ve saved by changing this attitude I had.

Thankfully I got over my snobbery and now love the savings I’m making while still enjoying my food. Continue reading “6 Step Plan to Slash Your Grocery Spending”

If you shop online then you need to read this!

I do a lot of online shopping. It’s the most convenient way to shop since kids came along. Gone are the days when I could spend a leisurely afternoon browsing around shops trying on clothes or picking out gifts. Who wants to be dragging a screaming toddler around the shops when you can press a few buttons on your phone and have your parcel appear at your door a few days later?! (Or next day if you’ve got Amazon Prime!!) Not that I’m complaining of course! I wouldn’t change the way things are right now for anything.

But since discovering one clever little trick that I’m about to share with you, online shopping just got even more appealing! How would you like to EARN MONEY while you shop??? Yes, I thought so! And don’t worry, this isn’t a post all about turning you into some clever computer hacker that’s going to steal millions. This is a completely legitimate technique that isn’t as widely advertised as I think it should be.

One Easy Way to Stop Overspending Today

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?

It’s so easy not to notice a few pounds here and a few pounds there, but all these little amounts soon add up. I have to admit that I didn’t really start paying attention to where all my money was going until I stopped earning! How backwards is that?!

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”
