Hi there!

Thanks for coming over to visit my Blog – it’s great to see you here!

My name is Donna aka ‘SavvyMumUK’ and my job is to help make your life a little easier. Here you will find all the latest deals and offers that I have found and wanted to share with you all, as well as money saving and money making tips and ideas.

 As a busy mum of 2 I know how hard it is to juggle life and money so I have also included some lifestyle articles too……it’s a little bit of everything.

I really hope you enjoy my blog, please be sure to visit my Facebook & Twitter pages and I also have a community group where you can interact with lots of other members.

 See you soon

About

As a busy mum of two, I know first hand how difficult it can be to juggle finances and the daily struggle to make ends meet. My mission is to seek out the best money saving and money making techniques and pass them on to you. You might think the odd coupon or discount code is hardly likely to break the bank but you would be surprised – My money has noticeably gone a lot further since I adopted new money-saving habits. Everything I know and learn is available for you to read on this blog. This blog is a great platform for me to share all of this information with you.

I am a 34-year-old mum to Amy-Olivia who is 8 and Jenson who is 14. Being a mum to a teenager brings daily challenges and the need for the latest sports gear, game or piece of technology is ever growing. My 8-year-old is not in this phase yet and so I still enjoy buying her the lovely girly outfits and hair accessories but I am sure the time will come that she too will be asking for the latest trends. We don’t often get much time together as a family. Day trips and family holidays are rare but with the money making techniques I am learning I am hopeful these can be but towards some family treats.

As well as this blog I have a fantastic Facebook Group where you can interact and take part in the many conversations and activities. You can find the group HERE. You can also find me on Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook and Instagram.

IMPORTANT: This blog or the information within is for guidance only and should never be taken as professional advice. You should always seek professional financial advice or that of a professional organisation if you are in any kind of financial difficulty or hardship.

Why I love to comp….and have I ever won?

Comp

Almost 2 years ago I came across a video on YouTube from a certain lady called Di Coke. It was a prize unboxing video. Intriegued, I continued to watch the video and was amazed by the amount of prizes she was winning from her hobby of entering competitions.

I’d entered the odd competition in the past but as a pessimist I always thought they were a bit of a con and only a small percentage of competitions were genuine and had legitimate winners. In particular ever since OFCOM fined both ITV and BBC for unfair conduct when running competitions. I generally thought if they were cheating people out of winning at competitions then anyone can.

Cashback Apps

Who’d have thought you’d ever get paid for spending your own money? Well, it’s true. You can and here’s how. You can earn money by shopping both online and in store and is always worth checking to see if cashback is available before purchasing anything. Even insurance, phone contracts and much more.

Cashback for Online Purchases

Earn cashback and save money when you shop at over 4600 retailers both online and in-store. Topcashback is the UK’s most generous cashback site and is totally FREE to join. I’ve put TCB at the top of my list as it’s my most favourite.

Topcashback Logo

To show how lucrative TopCashback can be I’ve added a snapshot of my account overview below. You can see that the total amount of Cash back I have earned to date is almost £800. That’s FREE money on purchases I was already going to make anyway.
