Food is one of the things in life that we need to have. How can you save money on this essential item in your life? The best tip I have to save, is to get reduced items. Supermarkets all have different times of when they reduce their items. I will share these with you below.
Best things to get.
Fruit and veg
As fruit and vegetables have dates on it shops have to sell them before that date but normally it will be fine for days as it is still fresh. The best tip is to use your eyes. If it looks good and is a bargain grab it. You can also get vegetables and blanch them for a few minutes and freeze and use when you wish. Berries like blueberries can be popped straight in the freezer and used for breakfast or in smoothies.
Easter is a time, for getting the family together and having a good old roast. If you choose to say at home instead of going out. You can be sure to get your Easter dinner for pennies.

You mum is that one person in your life that means so many thing’s to you. From guidance to inspiration. The go-to person when your down and need to rant. The person you will share all your happy memories and wonderful moments with you. You have to admit she is pretty damn amazing. And when you think of her the word budget doesn’t even come to mind.
From the day you were born your mum has cherished every gift you have given to her. From that first smile to the daisy you may have picked for her. Even that painting that you did for her that didn’t even look like you and her. To when you were a teenager and all you had was £5 to get a card present and wrapping paper. She still loved you whatever you got her. As adults, we feel the need to go and break the bank and spoil our mums even though deep down we know that they will be grateful if we have spent £5 or £50 on a gift.

If like me, you have set yourself goals/hopes and dreams for 2018. One of them maybe to save money after spending too much at Christmas and are so scared to have a look at your bank balance and hiding from the postman with all the credit card bills.

#1 365 Challenge
You may have seen this floating around on Facebook, you have a list of the 365 days of the year and for each day you put money in a pot. So for example on day 1 you put away 1p and day 2 2p and on day 3 3p and so on. Some people are put off by this as around Christmas and New year you do need to put so £3.00 a day away so I am going to do it slightly differently. I am going to print the sheet out a pick an amount each day and put it in. So, months where I know we have no birthdays, for example, February is a good month for me I can have days when I put £2.00 away. As long as you are putting away every day you will get to the end amount.
