Top ways to save money on adult purchases (AD)

Since becoming a Mum in 2016 I definitely appreciate my evenings much more. Having a small child, running around for most of the day, certainly makes me more grateful for the time that I have child-free. My 4-year-old is not the best sleeper, which makes evenings even more sacred! Now I’m a parent I enjoy the little vices of life a little more – so today I want to talk about saving money on adult purchases!

Using Hyperjar to manage family finances (AD)

In our household, the money management often comes down to me. I’m happy with this arrangement, as I’m organised and enjoy savings. I know how to prepare a budget and enjoy knowing that our family finances are well managed. My husband has access to our ‘house’ bills account and is happy with how things work but he also does the bulk of the shopping in our house too, especially at present. This works really well but I wanted an account where I could transfer some of our groceries budget so Tom could use the card and it wouldn’t matter when he forgets to give it back to me! Then HyperJar reached out to me to test out their service and it seemed perfect timing!

Certainly a month I can’t wait to see the back of, and just for a change, I wish I could skip forward a few months! I’m sure I’m not alone in this feeling though so I won’t feel bad. My aims have been very hit and miss this month! Around the 20th of the month, when it became obvious that we would be staying home for the foreseeable my aims fell a little by the wayside, particularly as I have no childcare now! Anyway, here it is – my aims for March 2020 – the results!
