About Us

Last updated: 01 October 2017

Mummy Money Matters was launched by Kalpana Fitzpatrick, a well-respected financial journalist, broadcaster and parent, after she discovered that mums were often overlooked and kept out of the loop when it came to money.

Finance can be unnecessarily complicated – MMM aims to keep it simple and relevant.

As well as editing and writing for Mummy Money Matters, Kalpana appears regularly in the media as an expert commentator on personal finance and is often seen on TV (BBC, ITV and  Sky News). She is also often on most of the major radio stations.

As a  columnist for DailyMail Online,  she covers money matters in its Femail section online. She also writes about money for Good Housekeeping magazine, The Sunday Times, The Telegraph and many more. Kalpana is also a Huffington Post UK blogger.

Kalpana is the ambassador for Global Money Week, which promotes financial education – every child should be equipped with the right level of knowledge before they finish their education.

Kalpana was recently shortlisted for the Women in Journalism awards and the National Press Awards 2016 and also the runner up for Personal Finance Blog of the year SHOMOS 2016.

Kalpana was also the financial journalist for Channel 4’s SuperScrimper’s TV show and the accompanying website.

She also works as a freelance journalist, writing for a number of publications and is often involved in many projects for high profile organisations.

Prior to freelancing, Kalpana worked at the Financial Times group, where she wrote for its investment titles.

She has over 14 years’ experience as a financial journalist and brings a wealth of knowledge to MMM. The content is written and researched by Kalpana. All editorial is independent and never compromised by advertising or sponsors.

Kalpana is extremely passionate about making finance simple and accessible as well as helping consumers make the most of their money. As a parent herself, she often found that families were presented with jargon, making finance unnecessarily complicated, resulting in many missing out on entitlements and putting their money in poor returning products.

Mummy Money Matters takes out the jargon, bringing forward essential information in an easy to understand manner.

Family finances are a top priority for mums and dads today – money matters, but when you become a parent, money matters the most.

 

As a money saving expert, Kalpana also comments on consumer, personal finance in the media. 

She is also often asked to be a judge at high profile events, which include the Direct Selling Association and HeadlineMoney, for example.

If you are interested in speaking opportunities, bookings, or interviews, please get in touch with Kalpana on 07717 858 414. You can email on kalpana@mummymoneymatters.com

Reduce your grocery bill by 70% this summer!

The kids are off school and they are going to be hungry – inevitably, the next few weeks will see the cost of your weekly shop shoot up.

To help families keep the costs of food shopping down, MMM put Approved Food to the test, which can help slash the cost of shopping by as much as 70%.

There is of course one catch – the food is past or close to its sell-by date, but perfectly safe.

With a £30 budget, MMM managed to bag a fair amount – cereals, tinned food, sweets and treats, drinks and even laundry detergent and dishwasher tablets – the sort of things where you can generally ignore the date stamped on the product.

If you’ve tried reducing the cost of the grub by switching brands or shopping at discount stores but think you can do better, then try Approved Food  – you’ll be surprised at just how much you could save on some store cupboard essentials.

New products are available everyday and there are some real bargains. For example, Sprite Zero 330ml for just 29p or a 2kg Reeses Peanut jar for just £2.99. There’s even stuff for pets, at more than 50% off.

MMM was really pleased with service and surprised at just how at just how much £30 would buy (see pic above/ instagram).

Although we would like to see Approved Food cut down on the cardboard packaging, the items arrived well packed and in excellent condition.

So, if you’re looking to save a few more pounds on your groceries, take a look at Approved food – you’ll be surprised at just how good the bargains are.
