Save money on beauty products (AD)

For 2020 I’m trying to make more effort for myself. With my Winter skincare mostly. Also, I’m trying to stop having a frizzy birds nest for hair too. It got real bad when I was in bed with the flu over Christmas time! I’ve really whittled down the products that I use in recent years and now I stick to buying the same make-up and skincare over and over as if it works why change things? Today I’ve got a few tips to share to help you save money on beauty products.

7 simple tips to cut back on heating costs

When it comes to heating I am a firm believer that if you are cold then you should just put the heating on. I have never been a person to try and cut back on heating costs, at least until recently!

I managed to negotiate lower energy prices this year and save £137! I’ve been able to lock into a tariff which has seen my direct debit drop considerably. Obviously I’ve been very happy with my savings but I decided that as I work at home full-time that I would look at small things I could do to cut back on heating costs. Especially since moving house in September 2019 and realising just how much it costs to heat our cold house!

The Meal Planning Linky Week #102 Meal Plan

Happy Friday. I hope your week has gone well. This week has been one of ups and downs for us. Thomas had an operation yesterday, which he is home recovering from, and because it was dental related I’m going to be planning lots of simple, fairly soft meals for the week ahead. Meals that don’t require a lot of prep time – as I need to get organised for Christmas still. Having absolutely minimal food waste is always important to me but I’m making things stretch even further at the moment because we still have so many house jobs to pay for. I will be taking steps to make sure we are avoiding overspending on groceries and this week I’m going to visit Lidl or Aldi for my shop, rather than doing an online shop. We’ve got lots of supplies in the fridge & freezer for Daisy, including her specialist bread and snacks, so I’m hopeful I won’t need to visit a ‘big’ supermarket again this week. I only spent £45 last week, including about £10 of treats, so I was really pleased!
