As it turns out, the 'three people, one income' tagline on the sidebar must now be changed to 'four people.'
The mammasaver household has indeed been blessed with a beautiful little baby girl, born in mid November. Two weeks late. Two entire weeks late. My pelvis has not forgiven me yet.
Amidst the newborn whirlwind, we also moved house to accommodate these tiny little growing people. Apparently, a one bedroom flat wouldn't do.
So, our financial challenges have increased this year a little:
- Bigger home = bigger energy bills.
- Nicer area + bigger home = larger council tax bill (ouch).
- Two children + all of the above = a bigger plughole in our bank account than we had before.
- Oh, and the need for a bigger car...
It is a challenge, but already we have found some fuss-less tricks to keep our spending down.
Watch this space over the coming weeks to hear our spending triumphs and downfalls, which might just save you a bob or two.
