Crunch the Costs

o   Hunt down a holiday bargain. With a rainy summer and so few of us going abroad, stores are awash with excess hols stock like swimsuits, sandals and holiday dresses. Pick up what you need for next year at up to 80 per cent off.

o   Pounce on the Bank Holiday flash sales. Many big-name stores have offers on for just 72 or 48 hours.

o   Add a Bank Hols discount code. Check out sites like MyVoucherCodes to track down an extra discount. Don’t forget free delivery codes for online shopping too.

o   Stock up early for Xmas. The summer sales are an easy way to save on everything festive from champagne to gifts

o   Look for food deals you can freeze and spread the cost of your grocery shop

o   Seen a top offer on an item your child will need next year? Snap it up now and save. Go up a size for clothes and shoes

Dan’s Tips for Families on a Budget

1.    Do your research on items you have your eye on. Nothing beats advice from people who have already purchased a product, or who can even recommend an alternative.

2.    Create a gift drawer so you’re ready for any party or event. Last minute gifts usually end up costing you more, so remember to buy when there’s a great offer on and save for later. 

3.    Keep costs down on days out by allocating a meal prep day each week.  Factor in upcoming picnics, parties or trips to avoid expensive meals when you’re out. Sites like MyFridgeFood are great for meal inspiration to use  up what you have at home.
