7 Ways to Save Money When You're Travelling in the UK!

We've had some lovely holidays abroad with the kids when they were younger but after our last holiday abroad we decided to stick to holiday's a little closer to home for a few years. The older the kids get, the more of a struggle it is to keep them protected from the sun when all they want to do is play in the pool all day.  They're so fair skinned that they catch the sun very easily and even the most expensive sun tan lotions need frequent top ups which means that I can't relax as much as I'd like to and they get fed up of me constantly smothering them.  I'm not being overly dramatic here … [Read more...]

Five frugal things I've done this week: 1.
