This week has been all about hunting down baby bargains on some of the essentials. I have managed some great finds all thanks to Sphock and eBay. I have used eBay for years and the good thing about it is if you miss an item there is always another one, so I can choose a budget for an item and stick to it.

I have used this spring clean to take advantage of making a bit of extra cash on the side by selling any furniture that is no longer needed. I have been using selling apps such as Gumtree and my new favourite Sphock.

Writing to manufacturers can be very rewarding and a lot of times it results in some high value, hard to get coupons. Anyone that coupons knows that finding ones that make items free are rare, as the majority are money off. So by gaining manufacturer ones this will result in free shopping.

I am afraid bargains for me this week have been a bit hard to find due to the norovirus that swept through our house. Although I have been unable to go outside to hunt some bargains down, I have still been able to see what is out there and this week I discovered the app Sphock.

Car boot sales can be great places to find bargains on items you have been looking for and sometimes some unexpected ones as well. Not everyone likes a car boot, so it really is a matter of personal preference whether you go to them or not. Personally, I love them. I have found some great buys over the years, but there are a few things to remember when buying from a car boot.
