Want to save money this Summer?

Would you say no to some money saving tips? Didn’t think so.

The summer is here (or so they say) which means more days out, getaways, and spending. So, to help with your money habits, we’ve put together a list of some of our favourite tips and tricks on how to hold on to your pounds (the good kind)!

Points Mean Prizes – Whether it be Tesco, Asos, or Boots, a huge number of shops offer a points system allowing you to earn back on your shopping. But Tesco doesn’t just offer this on your food shop. If you save enough points, you might even be able to take the kids on a fun day out to a number of great locations, including Thorpe Park and Drayton Manor!

Pack It In – It may not seem it, but a £2 bottle of water here and there can add up to a fair amount. This summer, try your best not to buy food and drink while you’re out and about. Instead, carry a reusable bottle and always remember to pack a snack, just in case!

Sell It On – We all have those old toys and clothes which as much as we try to deny, our babies have long grown out of. Summer is the perfect time to get rid of the clutter. Car boot sales are a great way of freeing up some room and earning some extra cash.

One Pound Meals – There is now a social media account dedicated to recipes costing £1 or less! Yes, really! Follow @onepoundmeals on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter  for some delicious and jaw droppingly cheap dishes.

Keep Your Receipts – Receipt Hog is an app available on Android and iPhone which allows you to earn prizes, simply by uploading photos of your receipts! It’s super easy to use and rewards include Amazon and PayPal vouchers!

These are just a few of our ideas, we’d love to hear how you’re saving money this summer!
