Right, so now I officially have a blog!

I have been wanting a blog for quite some time, but I always try and delay it.

I suppose now it’s the time as I really want to enter (and possibly win) BritMums Piggy Bank Tales competition, sponsored by Virgin Money.

I would like to share my Piggy Bank Tale:

Before having a family, I didn’t understand the meaning of having to save money, however now I am fully aware of it! I am always checking our bank account and bills to make sure that we are not in debt.

My tip to survive the credit crunch would be to use your imagination to entertain the kids in a small budget.

We always try and have cheap days out, taking our packed lunch and going to free places.

As the weather is getting better and spring is here, it’s so much fun going to the part – and it’s Free!

Before heading to the park, you could go to a local supermarket and buy a packet of 4-6 ice creams. They are usually the same price that you would pay for a single ice cream in the park – saving you money!

Alternatively, you could have fun at home, in your own garden. We usually invite Paulo’s little cousins round and they have a great time in the garden. Paulo is the one on the left and his cousins in the picture on the side.

My little one also enjoys going to big toy stores so we can take him there for an hour or so. While we browse the shop, he tries the toys and has so much fun – and it’s Free!

We are trying to save in the daily basis just to make sure that our finances are ok and we are not in debt. Unfortunately we are unable to put some money away for the future, but hopefully soon!

Please note that this post is my entry for the BritMums Piggy Bank Tales competition, sponsored by Virgin Money.

Please let me know your piggy bank tales too!

Thank you! 🙂 x
