Today it is sports day but we still have time to reflect on this weeks money saving and money making ventures! It has been another busy week here with lots of life admin going on in the background, but with it opportunities to make smart savings.
Five Fabulously Frugal Things I’ve Done Linky
First up and probably the most important is making sure that your life insurance is fit for purpose. Many of us ignore life insurance but that could be a very costly mistake if the worst was to happen. I had a slight panic myself on this as I have had some health issues the past couple of months and it did get me considering my long-term financial situation. If you are not covered I urge you to read 4 Things Everyone Knows About Life Insurance That You Don’t. If you take out cover because of my suggestion you will also be gifted a £75 voucher for M&S or John Lewis, and considering the premiums start off very low that is like free money right!
Secondly, I used TopCashBack to sort out Chloe’s travel insurance. She is off on her girls holiday very soon and I wanted to make sure that she was well covered with a low excess incase she needs to pay anything whilst out in Greece. Taking a EHIC card is also really important and these are free – just apply in good time. Never buy travel insurance from the estate agent- look online for low price details. I have paid just £11 for the week.
Thirdly don’t forget it is Fathers Day this weekend and if you are not organised be quick and read 6 Budget Fathers Day Treats that you can still do.
Penultimately we are still decluttering and selling things we no longer need. It has stalled a little this week but I we just need to go back into the selling sites and bump things up.
Finally I have stopped my personal training – again initially due to health but it was also expensive and I have decided group training is the way forward. It costs less and I like the motivation and energy I get from group training. You can read all about my start in Iron Zuu Gloucester: Training Like Never Before.
