There can be a lot of pressure to arrange big birthday celebrations for your kids. Parents often try and outdo each other and of course if one kid has something at their party, then the next one wants it at theirs, which can lead to a lot of unnecessary expense.

It’s been deals and bargains galore this week – everywhere seems to have a sale on. I may have had to lift my self-imposed bargain ban, as they were just too good to miss. It’s not just beauty bargains that I’ve discovered this week. Argos has some brilliant reductions on items that are perfect for putting away for Christmas.

You can stockpile anything from washing powder, washing up liquid, toiletries, pasta and sauces and cereals – anything that you can keep on your shelves that won’t go off. Over the last six months my stockpile has really grown and if I’m honest I love opening the door to my utility room and seeing all my shelves bursting with items, and I love it even more when I know that I paid at least 70% less than the original costs.

Finally though, it looks as if coupons are making a comeback and there are a few good sites that you can use to find them. My favourites are SuperSavvyMe and Caring Everyday, which have recently added some new coupons. Simply have a look through and see if there are any for products you use. Then just print them out and do your supermarket comparison and find where you can maximise your saving.

Finding a great deal or bargain is what I love doing. I’ve always loved to shop but when my circumstances changed I had to change, and finding deals for things my family needs is now my new passion. I make a rule to not pay full price and to always look for second hand items, offers, online codes and coupons. By doing this I’ve managed to find some brilliant deals.

This week hasn’t been the best for new coupons, so cash back apps seem to be the thing to use just lately. They are brilliant for claiming money back on items that you would buy normally – just be careful to not get caught out in buying something you don’t need just because you can get the money back. It’s not a saving if you weren’t buying the item anyway.

Supermarkets are always full of deals to entice you into parting with your money. Everywhere you look you will find buy one get one free, 3 for 2 and other multi-buy offers. Everything about these deals are designed to make you buy more than you need from the placement and wording of the writing to where in the store they are placed.

This week has been a good one for bargain finds but not for coupons. I don’t know why but just lately coupons seem to be a bit scarce, the usual sites don’t seem to be updating them very often and there seems to be less one off ones. With my Twitter page Coupons Galore UK I can usually find out about new coupons not long after they appear

While still living at home I was terrible with money and buying second hand would never have crossed my mind, but like a lot of families both my parents were made redundant and we had to drastically change the way we spent money. We went from being able to buy whatever we liked to having to save for things and not being so wasteful. This is something that I have carried on into my own little family.

It’s been a busy week. We had our visit to Chessington World of Adventures and even there I managed to find a bargain. I found a purple cabin bag with wheels for my son JJ, which was reduced from £20 to £10. It’s perfect for his sleepovers at his Mama’s house.
