Being a mum on a budget

My main reason for starting this blog is simple. Too many families like mine are finding that no matter how good we are or how strict we are with our finances, it’s just getting too expensive to survive as the cost of living keeps rising. Not to talk of if you live in a city like London.

Then there is channel 4 constantly bombarding us with shows million pound property,million pound mega yachts,most expensive food. The trend is really catching now with even BBC following on.

So my thinking was how does the average family like mine just ‘survive’?I am a mum of 2 young children and spending never ever stops!There is nappy,wipes,food,snacks (silly English culture),transport,clothing,toys, goodness me it is really hard to put anything away for a rainy day or plan holidays to just take a breather from the stressful life one lives.

So what I am aiming to do with this blog is build a community of people who agree with me that even though we live a budget lifestyle we can proudly share tips, encourage each other
