Hello form Family Bidgeting!

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.

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.


I do hope you will join me and share your 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.
