10 tips for saving money
We all have those things that we want to save for, whether it be a holiday, a new item of clothing or just saving for a rainy day. Some of us are lucky enough to have money left over at the end of each month, and some of us are always looking for ways to save a little extra.
I actually consider myself to be pretty good at saving when I want to, but I recently surprised myself with how well I did when I knew I had an end goal. After booking a holiday to Florida that was only 9 weeks away, I managed to save enough money to be able to enjoy myself whilst I was there, without having to worry about money and being able to buy what I wanted (which is what being on holiday is about right?!).
I thought I’d put together a little list of things I found helpful when saving up the pennies. Maybe you don’t even need this list because you have enough money or you’re already really good at saving, maybe it will inspire you to have a go yourself, or just maybe you will try some of these out and surprise yourself with how easy it can be.

So life is finally sort of settling back down after my return from holiday. Is it just me or do you find that it always takes a couple of weeks to get back to normal after a vacation? You’d think you can just come back, unpack, do some washing and then you’re done. That’s what I was expecting anyway. Wrong. I have done MANY washes, put all the holiday clothes away (I’m pretty sure I won’t be wearing shorts or bikinis in Manchester anytime soon), then there’s getting back on top of food shopping and the apartment, and probably the hardest thing – going back to work.
So as you may have seen if you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, that I bought a few goodies out there from the outlets, and I finally got round to choosing my birthday presents from Jay. You should know that my birthday is in January and we went to Florida in April. So the decision was a hard one! (It was between a handbag, a tattoo and a puppy, so you see my problem.)
Anyway, so i opted for a handbag, and ended up with three! These are my two new Kate Spade beauties…

So I’m over half way through the most amazing holiday and have only just managed to squeeze in some time for a quick post…
