Last year our money-saving abilities were really put to the test when we decided to get our foot on the property ladder and purchase our first property.
That’s right, we wanted to try and save for a house while renting.
Were we mad?
We were far away from home so moving back in parents wasn’t an option.
So we had to find ways to cut our budget and save enough for a deposit while renting.
How did we do it?
If you’re addicted to scrolling and snooping on social media like me, you can put all that to good use and score yourself a freebie with social media giveaways!
Brands run giveaways on their social media pages all the time, so it’s good to chuck them a like or a follow so their giveaways appear in your newsfeed. I’ve won LOADS of stuff over the years this way so I definitely recommend it.
The best sites I use for giveaways are:
Supermarket cashback apps are one of my favourite ways to cut down my weekly supermarket shop bill.
You can get major discounts and freebies on these apps, which can cut your food bill in half!
If you time it right and combine these apps with coupons, we’re talking serious savings.
I managed to eat for free for a week using a mix of supermarket cashback apps and coupons at one point.
When I totted everything up, I realised this saved me a whopping £100!
Our family are huge fans of Groupon, especially their days out!
Every birthday, Christmas or special occasion that warrants a gift, usually contains an exciting little slip with a random day out or adventure.
Past exploits include a spa day, a trip to the zoo, a sports car experience, the list goes on.
