Welcome to this week’s #SaveMoneyMonday!
In case you don’t know what #SaveMoneyMonday is, it’s my new weekly (ish) feature. Every Monday, I’m planning to feature one small way to save money in one way or another – whether it’s getting something for nothing, sharing a money saving top tip or even a way to make some extra money.
This week I’m thinking about the Summer Holidays as my two break up tomorrow so I thought we’d have a #SaveMoneyMonday Summer Holiday tip!
I found this one when I was browsing for wallpaper for my kitchen wall which, despite it being something I was determined I would have done before the Summer Holidays, I still haven’t got around to doing!
B&Q are offering DIY classes for kids aged 7-11 throughout the Summer and there seems to be a lot of stores participating so there should be one near-ish to where you live if you fancied joining in. The courses at my local store include making things like a bird feeder, a bug-house, a wheelbarrow planter and a butterfly home.
The site says that the sessions last an hour but they may run over because they want everyone to be able to take home what they make and when I went to book a session I thought it was great value at £5.00 considering that it includes all materials and you get to take home what you’ve made.
But then I noticed that the sessions were free if you were a B&Q club member and guess what, the club is free to join – you just fill in a quick form and you’ll get an email with your membership number in which you can use to book your classes over the phone on 0845 600 5428. I’m not sure what else you’ll get as a club member but it looks like there may be discount vouchers!
