The #2poundchallenge with Zamcog and VoucherBox

Do you like saving money? Could you live on £2 per head per day? I thought that we could and I was right! Today I’m going to share with you how I got on for the #2poundchallenge.

This doesn’t mean that I want to just waste money, however, I’m happy to splash out from time to time. Anyway, see below to find out how we did with the  #2poundchallenge!
