Hello from Family Budgeting

Hello from Family Budgeting!

Hi, I’m Becky and I am a  mum of two. My children are aged 4 and 7 and for the last 8 years, I have been a stay at home mother and part-time writer.

This is my new blog all about living creatively on a budget when you have school-aged kids. For the last 2 years, I have been blogging over at Baby Budgeting which is a website dedicated to parents of under 5’s and packed with money-making and money-saving ideas. My little ones are growing up fast and my baby has just started school. Financial issues change as your children grow and I felt it was time for a new site to explore all these new ideas so hello from Family Budgeting.

I shall still write over at Baby Budgeting because I am passionate about ways to help people afford more time with their children but I am excited about blogging here too. I want this to be a space filled with tips, ideas, profiles, thoughts and creative posts on living well on a budget with our school-aged children.


Family Budgeting Ideas

I do hope you will join me and share your family budgeting ideas too.

How wonderful if we could all save/make a bit of money along the way.

      Thank you Lindy…I’m thinking it’s a little green? Very hard when you have been comfy in one place for so long to quite know how to furnish your new one!

    A great idea and a natural progression. I’m sure it will be just as successful as its predecessor! xx

      I guess it’s time to grow up I’m just not sure I’m ready really!

    If Family Budgeting is half as useful and successful and Baby Budgeting then it will be a winner. Good luck x

    I look forward to your ideas and tips on this. It’s becoming increasingly harder to survive in these tough economic times.

    My recent tip, use a grandparent who is out shopping much of the time to look out for plimsoll bargains. We saved £10 this way.
