I’m always looking for ways to provide well for the future for my 2 young daughters. As I’ve mentioned already, the girls father just upped and left a while back so I’m always taking advice on plans that will satisfy our need for the future. I know people who study supermarket brochures and then drive to the one with the cheapest deals . These days its so easy to use comparison sites to find the cheapest supermarket prices. I find Mysupermarket.co.uk pretty useful for comparing prices from shops like Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Waitrose as well as others.
Another thing I’ve done is join Netmums, an online parenting organisation that offers fantastic information to mothers and offers local support and advice. One of these is where to find free and fun activities to do with your kids. There is also another site called VisitBritan where you can pick up wonderful ideas for cheap days out as well as free activities for cheap outings and holidays. You’ll be able to investigate affordable theatre tickets as well as cheap restaurants to eat at when you’re on a budget. By doing some research, if you’re in my position, don’t stress as there are lots of ways to ensure as parents battling to make ends meet, your kids, like my girls, can enjoy all the fun things kids should enjoy.
