Bibetta Lunch Bag – Review

If you’re trying to pack a school lunch, using a refillable water bottle and tupper ware, you’ll understand that packing it all into a standard size lunch box is almost impossible. When we were sent a Bibetta Lunch Bag I could see that my problems of fitting everything into the lunch box were going to be resolved! The neoprene fabric (the same stuff wetsuits are made from!) is strong, but flexible! The shape is ideal for accomodating a large drinks bottle, and several reusable containers – perfect if you have a fussy eater to pack lunch for!

Coupons and money saving

Disclaimer; Sponsored Post, all thoughts are my own.

 Trying to save money is something I know lots of families are trying to do, especially on those essential purchases! Saving money on essentials, leaves a little extra for those treats! A few years ago I started to use coupons when I did our weekly shop, at first friends laughed that I’d be saving small amounts on a loaf of bread or cat food, but when I added up the saving over a month – it came to quite a decent total! The money I saved went towards other essential purchases, like clothes, and I was delighted that after a few months the money we’d saved added up to a decent family treat! Continue reading

September, Love it? Hate it?

I have a love/hate relationship with September. On one hand it is a new start, the start of a new school year and a new season. I love watching the changing colours from bright summer, to warm Autumnal colours which I really adore, nature really is clever. It’s like it takes all the warmth of summer and spreads it across leaves to give you one last memory of summer before wiping it away to make way for Winter.

Getting great deals on your shopping!

DISCLAIMER: Sponsored post, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Do you ever feel like you have an endless shopping list? New school shoes, new uniform, new trainers, sofa, dog bed..the list goes on. With so many things we need to buy, things we want can get forgotten as who has the spare money to buy those things too? I love shopping, and having children hasn’t really changed that, I have just changed the way I shop. I shop online more, and I try to grab a good deal whenever I see one!
