Every Thursday I will be bringing you another instalment of my guest series, Money Talks. I’ll be featuring bloggers from all walks of life giving their answers to money related questions. Hopefully you will find a new blog to read and learn more about other people online. Money Talks will be live every Thursday and I’ve got some absolutely fantastic bloggers taking part! Hope you enjoy it. If you’re a blogger and want to take part then get in touch. This weeks instalment features Life As Mrs D. You can check out the Life As Mrs D website here.
When did you start blogging?
I’ve been blogging on and off for about 15/16 years, but Life As Mrs D has been running since December 2013.
What inspired your blog name?
I’d not long been married, and wanted something that would last. As my blog is about what’s going on in my life, Life As Mrs D seemed quite fitting.
What is your attitude to money – are you a spender or a saver?
I like the idea of saving, but in reality, I’m not great. Money is Mr D’s domain. I just ask him every now and again how much money we have, and if I can carry on spending!
What is the best bargain you have ever purchased?
Erm… I’ve got no idea. I know I constantly show people the bargains I’ve recently got…but can’t think of any right now. I know that I tend to get any toys for Isla secondhand on facebook groups, so I’ve got some real bargains there, as well as at NCT nearly new sales. Isla’s VTech first steps baby walker for £2 will always be a good bargain!
What is the biggest splurge you have ever made?
Dinner one night a few years ago when neither me or Chris could be bothered to cook so we went out for dinner….to The Hand & Flowers in Marlow (nearly £200 later…..)
If you had £100,000 right now what would you do with it?
Buy a bigger car, hire someone to dig out all the weeds from our new allotment plot, and then pay off some of the mortgage with the remainder.
If you could go back 10 years & give yourself one piece of money related advice what would it be?
Put a little bit of money each month from your pay into a savings account. Even if it’s ony £5 or £10, it will soon add up. Or even save £1 a day.
What was the last item you purchased?
Very exciting..a bag of sugar so that I could make some elderflower gin
What is your favourite ever blog post?
“Our allotment after 2.5 years”. I loved writing about it, and looking back on the photos of how much work we’ve done on it.
What is your biggest money regret?
Not knowing more about money – tax, mortgages, interest, savings, ISA’s, all that boring stuff that is actually really useful!
