Hello! Happy Friday! What a productive week we have had. Our home finally feels like it is coming together. TVs on the wall, painting finished in the living room and lots more. It feels so good to finally be clearing some of the boxes and putting all of Tom’s DVDs where they go. Tom is really happy and I’m so proud of all the work that we have achieved both together and individually.
Having absolutely minimal food waste is always important to me. I’m making things stretch even further at the moment because we still have so many house jobs to pay for. I am taking steps to make sure we are avoiding overspending on groceries. This week I’m keeping the budget low again, and using lots of Simply Cook recipes this week. *Why not sign up and grab yourself a box for £1?< This is a subscription service so be sure to cancel if you don’t want it to auto-renew.
I quit my job in 2013 to work for myself full-time, as my regular readers will know. I’m really proud that I have created a job that I can do, at home, working for myself. I’ve always wanted to be self-employed and now I am really am living my dream! I am earning a full-time income and have been able to have some wonderful holidays, and other treats, for my family over the last year in particular using the money that I have earned. I’m also debt free – which is a wonderful feeling, and feel the most financial aware that I have ever been.
I love being able to make money online! For me, personally, I think diversifying is the key to online success. I run this blog, and AllergyFreeDay and make money from those blogs in a variety of ways. Alongside that I like to keep up the online moneymaking too as this helps us with family holidays, nice days out and provides a boost to my income on quieter months too.
If you’re someone who doesn’t have as much time to dedicate as I do, or perhaps a lot of energy to dedicate to starting a website and creating content, there are still some fantastic ways that you can make money online.
Matched betting – If you’ve been around making money online for a long time you may have heard of this already. Basically you are using free bets an offers from bookmakers and casinos to make yourself a profit. I made made £15,000 in my first 4 months! Once I won £7,906.12 – there is screenshot proof too if you want to check. Long term I would say you can make a small, regular pot of money each month from this and the return on your time is much higher than paid surveys and the like. Although I do enjoy these too as I like to keep things diverse! Be sure to read my pros and cons of matched betting.
Paid surveys – I love getting paid for giving my opinion. There are SO many sites now and these are some of the ones I use and like:
There are LOTS more survey websites that I use, and you can find all of the ways to that I make money in my ways to make and save money online post. I love lots of websites listed there and am trying to update it regularly now!

Good morning! Happy Monday! I hope you’ve had a great weekend. We’ve been working on more jobs at home, and now the living room is almost finished! Slow and steady progress is being made, which is great. Daisy is really excited as in early March we will be getting a dog to join our family.
This weeks photo I snapped while we were on the way over to see Daisy’s Nan & Grandad. She loves a visit to my in-laws and sees them at least once a week, which is great. It’s so nice to have a good family unit around us and Daisy really thrives from all the different people she sees and places she goes. Today Daisy is off to a farm this afternoon, and I know she’ll have a great time!
