About Me

Hello, I’m Collette – welcome to my money-saving blog! I love freebies, comping and making extra pennies through surveys and mystery shopping.

What inspired me to start this blog?

I’ve always been a bit savvy with money, but my penny-pinching ways were seriously put to the test when I moved to an expensive, rural Surrey village with my other half and we decided to get our first foot on the property ladder.

I’m going to share with you all the ways we saved enough to purchase our first property in one of the most expensive areas of the country, all before the age of 25.

It was hard work but we managed to do it and you can too!

I also want to show you that you don’t have to give up life’s little luxurious and there are ways to save money and still enjoy your life.
