pocket money

Over the last year I tried a savings plan I saw on social media and it has worked brilliantly for me so I thought I'd share...
Basically the idea is you save some money every day of the 365 days of the year - saving 1p on day 1, 30p on day 30, 365p (£3.65) on day 365. I translated these amounts into a monthly amount to save on payday every month, the highest monthly amount to save works out as £105.45 and at the end of the year you end up having saved £671.61 plus any interest from the account you've put it in.

If you live in UK, think twice before spending coins and notes. Sometimes a coin or note is worth more than its face value. Eagle eyes can make a fair bit more by selling special or commemorative editions on online auction sites, and it's relatively easy to make an extra couple of hundred a year this way!

set a limit like 1GBP

Everyday empty all pockets, jeans, jackets etc and EVERYTHING under a pound goes into your pot !

Every month find at least an extra 45-60 you never knew you had just when you need it !

nights out

If you want to remove the temptation to blow loads of money over the weekend, just send it from your proper bank to your fidor account by the faster payment system on Friday morning. Guaranteed you won't see it again until Monday at the earliest

Is this available in the UK?

Yes it is. Go to https://uk.freedompop.com/. Order your SIM for 99p and then DO NOT forget to downgrade within the first month to the Basic offer to avoid paying for the Plan that costs money. You can start using your minutes, texts and data even before the SIM arrives!!! Coverage poor in some areas (they use Three's network) otherwise perfect.

Get 2 weeks dog food for free, delivered to your door and tailored to your dog paying just £1 delivery with this discount code - LAUREBG5

The price afterwards depends on what type of dog you have and their activity level. I have a husky x collie and his food is £17 a month, so it's inexpensive and the quality of food is amazing.

trips, accomodation

I always look at apps and websites like booking.com when I need a hotel quick then always take the price into the hotel and they either match or do it cheaper. Ramada is really good for this.
