Frugal Fridays!

Tumblr source.

It's time for another Frugal Friday. I don't think I'll ever run out of tips to give especially since I'm still learning new ways to save money now!

The first one is to get every card possible that you can collect points on, it may seem like the points don't amount to much but I've managed to get multiple 'free lunches' with my Superdrug and Boots card. I also got a £1.50 off a £15 purchase with my nectar card and I know Tesco clubcard also have similar deals. It may not see like much now but over time the points can really add up, and who doesn't love a few vouchers. I also have Subway card, Matalan card, Boux Avenue card to name a few. Especially if you already shop at the shops on a regular basis. They are also free sign up for!

Another tip is to shop the reduced food section in shops in the evenings, you'd be surprised what you can get for 14p and most of it can be frozen anyway. I was having a barbeque in July when we have moved in, and buying the food for barbeques can be quite expensive and so we planned ahead and bought things in June, buying ahead will save you money in the long run. Desserts are generally very also reduced and so it's great for a yummy little treat.

My last tip for this week is to buy from websites such as eBay or apps such as Depop. I have managed to buy brand new candles and clothes. What looks so great on in the shops may not look as good on at home and so a lot of the clothes still have their labels on. It's so easy to use, you just search for what you want and ta-da! I'm loving pastel clothes at the moment and so this is great for me. I also have bought a few bath and body work candles off Depop aswell as eBay for great value aswell as other things. It pays to search around. Depop also sells homemade items and they have some adorable shorts!

Love Sarah

  1. These are great tips! I always say no to signing up for cards at stores because I find my wallet is so full, but you make a great point! The savings really do add up. I think I will take your advise and actually start getting those rewards cards! Thanks for posting :)
