The birthday card idea is such a good one. DS had a birthday party to attend today, I went to the card factory and got 5 cards for £1! That's less than I normally pay for 1 card from Paperchase, and they are cute!
One word of warning with pet insurance though, if you change provider they will not pay out for any previously diagnosed issues. Found this out with my cat and we ended up paying for something we would have been covered for if we never switched....
I use my card for everything so getting cash out at the start of the week is a good idea.
Aldi shopping IS cheaper but does anyone else find the shop super stressful? Just parking in our one is a nightmare at all times and everyone is very pushy in store and the whole packing thing stresses me out lol. I find it hard work and will never go again with kids!
Our monthly bills aren't too bad, we only pay £20 for two mobiles and do not have a tv package only broadband. I spend most our money on bits for the girls and house, which they do not need after Christmas yet always find myself looking online....maybe I'll cancel broadband ha ha ha
Just worked out that all our bills/direct debits come to £1800. I also have playgroup, petrol, food, kids activities, general living, bdays to pay for on top of that. No wonder i always feel skint. Time to have a real look at trying to get rid of some of them if i even can
All this cheaper food shopping sounds amazing. Here where I live we easily spend 1000-1200€ A month on food as our supermarket is super expensive (generally food in Finland is super expensive) and our nearest other supermarket is 50km away!!!!
