Money saving tips

Now if you are anything like me you'll want to make your hard earned money go as far as possible, but also have shopaholic tendencies! Here are some easy tips to help you make the most out of your cash!

Shopping



If like me you do most of your shopping online there are now countless sites where you can get cash back every time you shop. The percentage of cash back varies from retailer to retailer but you can normally expect to get around 3% cash back on most purchases. You can get cash back from a variety of retailers so whether you're ordering a new pair shoes or a your Friday night take away you could save yourself a few pounds. Quidco is my favourite site and one that I regularly use. The one downside to cash back sites is you don't see the benefit straight away and it sometimes takes a few months for your cash back to be bankable.

 Daily deals


Sites like Emerald Street can give you some great money saving offers. If you sign up to their mailing list you will get sent daily emails which include interesting articles and can include promotional discount codes. One of the best offers they do are Two-For-One on afternoon tea. I have also seen money off codes for online retailers. 

Designer Shopping


If you find yourself lusting after designer goods then sites such as BrandAlley and SecretSales are a great place to look. They hold time limited sales for big name brand and you can grab yourself up to 70% off your favourite labels. It can be hard sometimes to get items in the size you want because stock does tend to go quickly but if you look ahead to upcoming sales you can usually grab a great deal. 

Lifestyle Deals


Wether you're looking for a gift, spa day or theatre tickets sites such as AmazonLocal, Groupon and Wowcher usually have a deal for it. These sites offer discounts to a variety of activities which can save you up to 80%. I have ordered a few afternoon teas and days out through these sites and have found them really enjoyable. It's also nice if you are planning a day out to see where you can maybe treat yourself to a fancy dinner without breaking the bank. 

Holiday Deals


Everyone deserves a break once in a while and if you, like to have a little luxury in your life then sites like Secret Escapes are a great place to look. They do weekly sales with the best offers for last minute holidays and hotel stays. Whether you're looking of a city stay or a spa retreat they usually have something to suit your every need. Another benefit is they also have holidays available which are outside of the UK.
