Easter weekend

leave a comment »

So, it’s nearly Easter weekend and I’m getting very excited about spending some time with my family, getting out for some fresh air and generally having some fun.

As ever though, I’ll be looking at keeping costs down this weekend by making sure I’ve got plenty of cheap supplies in (probably and Aldi job I think) for a few family treats and of course . . . lashings of ice cold beer.

We’ve also mapped the weekend out and have got some budget activities lined up:

Friday > Spring clean the house
Saturday > Family walk in the park, trip to the swimming pool
Sunday > Trip to Windermere (I’m sure it will lash it down, but we’ll try it anyhow)
Monday > Relaxation at home

Lunch is getting out of control

leave a comment »

I’ve noticed that my lunch spending is spirraling out of control at them moment as I’m finding myself going for a quite expensive salad option on a daily basis. I reckon I’m looking at a bout £4.00 a day which racks up to a heft £20 a week.

I just wondered if anyone had any budget (and healthy) lunchtime meal tips?

Thriftyness: Online sales, discount codes and saving money

leave a comment »

This recessions seems to be taking its toll in many ways. Everywhere I look people are being made redundant, companies are going bust and people are under serious financial pressures.

I thank my lucky stars at times like this that I’ve got a stable job and a few pennies tucked away just incase . . . (not a lot mind).

With this in mind I’ve tried to be even more thrifty than usual and started to use a lot more of the social online shopping resources such as MoneySavingExpert and Paid to Shop. The forums are great and offer some reaaly useful money saving tips including details of online sales, discount codes and other money saving tips.

It’s the discount codes that I really love. They’re everywhere. I’ve seen some offering up to 20% off in some cases.

Anyway – here’s one offer I’ve happily been taking up – the 10% off everything at Zavvi.co.uk 🙂
