How to save on back-to-school shopping was originally a paid collaborative post in conjunction with My Voucher Codes back in 2018 and updated in 2022. I would love to think that I am an organised Mum but half the time I am a fly-by-the-seat of my pants mum, however, when it comes to saving money I am on it! Raising children is expensive and any penny I can save means that I can spend it somewhere else, preferably on something fun.
University open days are a great way to help your son or daughter decide which university to choose. They can be somewhat overwhelming and also not all open days are created equally, so in order to help your child get the most out of their visit, we have put together this guide from a parent’s perspective.

If you ask any successful entrepreneur about the key to starting a successful business, the most common answer you will hear is investing in the right opportunity at the right time. There are some businesses that have started out as an accident or emerged from something that just luckily managed to gain momentum later on. However, this is a very small percentage of businesses, and most of these enterprises have a limited life. As soon as things start to change or as soon as the product/service starts to lose demand, these businesses have little that they can do to keep things going.

Taxes can be daunting for anyone but when you are running your own business it is even more important to keep things in check because you could end up putting your livelihood at risk. Not only can you end up incurring financial penalties, but you can get yourself in some legal trouble if you do not pay the right taxes at the right time. An important tax for small business owners to be aware of is VAT or value-added tax. I am not yet at the stage where I have to pay tax but I do earn money being a blogger (find out how).
As a family, we’re always trying to save as much as we can. We can’t necessarily afford to put a great deal aside each month, but it’s always so reassuring to have a little bit put away for things like holidays, days out, and, of course, Christmas and Birthdays. But, with the looming inflation rises, the ever increasing energery cost rises and my boys growing up quicker than I ever thought possible, and things like going to university, moving out and, dare I say it, weddings, looming ever closer on the horizon, I’m trying to find ways in which we can cut back and save more.

It’s true – you can stay fashionable on a budget, but it’s not as easy as it would be if you had a higher sum of more »
With so much conflict in the world, it is important to talk to your children about war and explain things to them in an age-appropriate way. This is especially important when they reach school age as they will hear about it in the playground and it is so much better if you become their trusted source of information. That way you can control what they hear and how they process it. When it comes to older children you will find that they consume so much news and information via social media such as TikTok.
