Three money saving tips now the clocks have changed

It was dark by 4.45pm tonight and it is just going to get earlier and earlier as the winter draws in, so I have three quick, easy and inexpensive tips to save money.

1) Close the curtains as soon as it gets dark, this makes sure you keep the cold out and the heat in.

2) Buy a hot water bottle for everyone.  There is nothing worse than getting in an icy bed.  A simple hot water bottle can make getting int o bed on a night so much nicer.

3) Turn the thermostat down by one degree.  Just by doing this you can save up to 10% on your heating bill.


  1. Top tips my frugal friend I'm lovibng your new site!

  2. These are the best types of tips - so easy to do but save money x x

  3. I also love that your blog is the first one tonight that doesn't have that comments captcha thing on where you have to type in the silly word ;-)

  4. I agree about the hot water bottle, K is much happier getting into bed when it's warm. My mum has my grans old electric bed warmer, it's a huge metal UFO shaped contraption. I might give it a go!

Bissell Vac and Steam Machine Review and Giveaway

I have hard floors downstairs which I love.  They are much more practical than carpet with 2 mucky boys and a dog. Over the past 8 years I have tried all sorts of ways to keep them clean and I think I have finally found the product that does that for me. It is the  Bissell Vac and Steam Machine .  This amazing suel action machine vacuums and steam cleans either independently or at the same time.  It means that I have done away with my vacuum and steam cleaner downstairs (which I gave to my brother in law). What I like: You can either vacuum or steam clean or do both It is lightweight and easy to manoeuvre The handle is adjustable great for a home with people of different heights and for getting the kids involved. You need no chemicals The pads are washable and reusable It comes with a two year guarantee It warms up fast (within 30 seconds) so no long wait to start cleaning It costs under £100 It is space saving.  No need for a separate vacuum, steam cleaner or mop.
