From the very day you find out you are pregnant a million things will run through your head, it is an incredibly exciting time but it’s also a time when many of us will be looking to tighten those belts (money wise obviously, there’s not much hope of that happening with the bump in the way!) I always worry about money and how we will cope when the maternity pay kicks in, as I am sure many of you mummies-to-be and daddies-to-be do.
One great way of getting some “help” is to use websites like mumandbabyonline who pride themselves on helping you to save those valuable pennies. Sign up to the newsletter; you fill out one simple form that in turn signs you up to other companies such as Boots, Hipp, Huggies and Pampers, giving you the opportunity to start saving straight away on all those essential baby needs. How does it help you save I hear you say? You will get access to vouchers, fantastic competitions and emails from mumandbabyonline with updates monthly, so you’ll never miss out.
Another way of helping out with the monthly finances, is to check out what you are entitled to; have a look at Martin Lewis’s site www.MoneySavingExpert.com/benefits. Whilst your “scales” are increasing; why not increase the weight of that purse too!
