As a parent, there are plenty of free offers, entitlements and gifts you can take advantage off.
If you want to find out what you might be able to get for free, check out the sites below.
But you should also sign up to retailer sites – for example, if you sign up to Pampers, you will get free nappies sent to you regularly. Cow & Gate will send you a free cuddly toy. Hipp Organic send you free samples. These are great freebies for new mums.
Offers include vouchers, free days out, clothing, packs and samples. You may have provide an email address, but you can always set one up for this purpose.
There are also various Facebook groups dedicated to hunting down the latest freebies, which you can join.
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.
