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,

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,
