Meal for a Tenner Review

Standard

I posted a blog about a Meal for a tenner and so here is my review on it.

We tried the ones at Tesco and was very impressed, but not with Marks and Spencers which we tried last Saturday.

It was lovely meal, but both my husband and I didn’t go much on the Rose wine we had, and I think that you get more for your money with the Tescos meal for a tenner, so prefer the Tescos one compared to the Mark and Spencers meal deal.

I am not sure if we will do the meal for a tenner this Saturday, as we are taking a trip on the Watercress line Train ride as treat for our son, as he loves trains and so I will post about our trip next week.

I am also going to take a trip to either the Christmas markets along the South Bank or to Winter Wonderland so when I do I will be writing a post.

On Youtube this week I came across this video by Sugarmamma.tv about Quick Cash Saving habits.

I have been watching Strictly still and I got to say I think Kevin and Stacey could possibly win it, I loved their dance last week doing the Paso, and feel they do have a real strong partnership.

So I hope you all have a good weekend and check out the Tescos meal deal, no I am not sponsored I just think it is great.

Many thanks for reading,

A Meal for a tenner

Standard

Thanks to my mum, who is the greatest, we have been introduced to the supermarket meal deals. Now each Saturday we now save a tenner to purchase a meal deal.

The great thing about doing the meal deal is that you get a bottle of wine with it aswell, for you fellow wine drinkers out there.

I think it is totally worth it, so far we have apart from today, done the Tescos meal deal and both times they have been really nice meals.

Today we decided to try the Mark and Spencers one and I will report back on what I thought. We have gone with steak, mash potato and a bottle of wine.

I  am already in the opinion that the Tescos one you get slightly more for your money as it includes one main, one side, dessert and bottle of wine, but with the Marks and Spencers one you get a main, a side or dessert and a bottle of wine.

You can do the meal deal just for one or for two.

So I am gonna enjoy the rest of my Saturday and look forward to another hopefully nice meal.

I hope you all have a great weekend.

Many thanks for reading,

End of another week

Standard

Its Friday Yippy. No more school run for two days, hooray. Not that I don’t like the school run it is such a mission, as Henry my son loves to watch people going passed, the pond, the trees for squirrels and the buses going by.

Today is going to be an easy day for me, as got most of what I needed to do during the week. At the moment I am listening on Google Music APP Guetta and Sia Flames.

Not sure if I am that impressed with Google Music App as you have to pay for it, and should be able to listen to podcasts as as music, but it won’t let me andI got it because I wanted to listen to podcasts not just music.

Another App I am using is Podcasts which is available from Play Store and it is completely free to use and I am loving it.

I love listening to Tony Robbins and been watching a lot of videos on Youtube by Erin May Henry, Gillian Perkins, Sugar Mamma, Alexa Aka MissTrenchCoat and Project Life Mastery. I would recommend them to watch as they really help motivate me and inspire me.

This weekend it is my brothers birthday and my sons, so will be celebrating those and have small gathering of family.

So who inspires you on Podcasts, Youtube and what you up to this weekend I would love to hear from you.

Many thanks for reading,

Money saving tips

Standard

The one thing I try and do this time of the year is to save as much money as much as I can, as I know this is a busy season for me with birthdays coming up and then Christmas.

I like to save money by not paying full price on anything, so if I can get it in a sale then I will.

The other thing I like to to see what I already have and use that up first. I only bulk buy on items I know we use a lot of, for example toilet paper.

I set a budget on each gift that I buy and stick to it.

I make sure I keep up to date with my finances and give myself enough for travel and food.

Planning ahead of time for me is the key to saving and check out what deals are online compared to in the stores.

I am not frightened of buying in Charity shops either, you can find some lovely pieces of jewellery, clothes, ornaments, books and other nic-naks.

So lets get saving and see what treasures we can find for this year.

Many thanks for reading,
