Five activities that won’t break the bank 

Hey readers,

Today I want to talk about things to do when you’re skint because that’s my situation right now.  I thought this may be of use to parents who struggle to find cheap entertainment when you have lack of funds.

1. The first thing that I would suggest is the most obvious thing and that is just to take a ball, frisbee or anything that is suitable for the park It can be just the local Apr down the road  but it is still fun. Not to mention getting some fresh air and a break from the four walls of your home.

2. If you are bored, skint and at home then pick film. You can even find a ton of free films on YouTube. Such a easy activity  to kill a couple of hours especially when it is rainy or to stop the never ending.

3. If you are desperately needing to escape the Doom of mummy prison then I suggest get your wellies on and go out. Even if it is to just simply collect leaves, sticks and stones. All I can be fantastic material to paint with at home. It is free and a real winner in my home.

4. I love my library, it is such a fabulous service within the community. It is  free to loan books and children’s audio books. There is free activities such as rhythmtime and story time – in the latter they provide  free activities with all their materials such as paper and colouring in pens. It  is a great day out for everyone and you’re learning, what more could you want?!

5. A classic activity to do when you’re skint is to get the board games out or jigsaws. You will be amazed at how much it can kill an hour or two and it us great bonding time. plus, it helps teach children patience and to share!

Is there anything I have not mentioned that is a real winner in your home that doesn’t break the bank?
Hope you have found this helpful and whatever you do I hope you have lots of fun.

My top seven frugal tips 

Hey readers,

I love a good bargain and trying to save money when I can. So, I thought I would share some of the things that really help reduce the cost of my spending.

1.Plan, set a Budget for a X amount and stick to it.

2. Go to the supermarket near closing time to get reduced items.

3.You can put your recipts to a good use by download Shopprize from an app store and scan your recipts. You then can over time exchange the coins into amazon vouchers. It doesn’t take that long either. Sadly the app only works on Android at the moment.

4.Wait until after an occasion to get knocked down prices, I.e. Halloween/Christmas etc.

5.Use mysupermarket.com as it is brilliant for comparing products and finding the cheapest place to go.

6.Take advantage of the advantage card. Tesco and Boots are my favourite and they are nice little earners.


7. Save 10p every say in a jar, it soon adds up after awhile.
