I have always been a shrewd shopper. Before we had kids – when we had spare cash to spend, Hubby used to roll his eyes at my shopping around for the best price. Now, he’s worse than I am for trying to save a few quid. We are both fans of savvy online shopping now. I have lots of money saving tips and tricks, and thought I’d share a few on my blog.
Savvy Online Shopping
The first thing I do is add all the items I am considering buying for the kids birthdays and / or Christmas to an Amazon Wishlist. I check the Wishlist every day for price changes and buy items when the price drops to the level I want to pay. This saved me over 30% on the kids’ main Christmas Gifts last year. Definitely savvy online shopping in my book!

Something else I have discovered recently is latestdeals.co.uk. This website shares a large amount of deals from a huge range of retailers. Today alone, I spotted that my shampoo and conditioner of choice are available for £1 a bottle at Poundshop. (I usually pay £3.89 per bottle). I also snapped up a 2 for 1 voucher for Flamingoland. I’ve registered for it in my name and hubby’s too, so that’ll save us £80 when we visit this Summer!
If you shop at H&M regularly, you need to make sure you have signed up to the H&M club. You’ll get free standard delivery on all online orders, plus regular deals and discounts too. I found this out via latest deals, and once I registered, I got 10% off my first H&M order.. As well as free next day delivery – HAPPY DAYS! (I bought the kids a load of clothes for the summer holidays, as they have taken yet another stretch).
I also found out that Iceland deliver to our house for free when you spend £35 online, AND got £5 off my first order too. This makes me very happy as I detest grocery shopping in person!
Lastly, Syd and I are going camping later on this month, and I found some fabulous bargains for our trip thanks to Latest Deals. I got 55% off a new tent and 60% off a cool bag. Additionally, I got some discounted cooking equipment, an inflatable sofa, camping table, lantern, picnic set and more. I reckon I saved well over £100 on camping equipment all told. Not to mention saving around £30 on suncream too. I got 10% off some new clothes for Syd as well as some discounted flip flops for me from H&M.
