Money Saving Shopping Tips

Hey Bargain Hunters...

Let's face it we all love shopping and treating ourselves but it always feels all that more special when you feel like you've scored yourself a bargain. Am I right? I am always thrilled when I save a bit of money but then if you watch my empties or haul videos you will know I am a thrifty fan and no stranger to a good deal. I want to share some awesome ways to make shopping and days out guilt free by saving you some money towards treating yourself even more.


I only discovered the joys of cashback recently and it is so easy to get money back on products you are already going to by. I use Topcashback who have a whole host of top retailers working with them to get you a little money back for what you spend. It's easy you can join here and download a tab to your laptop so when your shopping if they do cashback you will be alerted and with a simple click of a button your purchase will be remembered and any cashback will be collected. On a recent Lindy Bop order I got £3.20 back which doesn't sound like a lot but when you were already making that purchase the money can build up in your account in no time.



There are lots of sites you can use to get money off meals, days out and even products one of the ones I like to use is My Favourite Voucher Codes they have lots of fantastic deals, Covering anything you can think of from a lovely meal out at your local swanky restaurants for half the price to camping away in fun little spots. Just jump on the website and have a look for your local deals. I like to use this site when I really want to go somewhere new and by looking at the offers you get lots of ideas of new places to go and things to do with the ones that you love. The reason My Favourite voucher codes wins above the rest for me is because not only do you save a ton of money but you also raise money for charity at the same time.So just by going fun places at a fraction of the price you are doing your part in helping those who need it, You will never find a better idea to go for a meal, 


If you have managed to avoid loyalty cards so far because you think they are too much hassle then think again. So many retailers now have loyalty schemes.  I like to let my points build up and spend them on a rainy day when I need a little boost. Nectar, Boots and Superdrug always build up the quickest for me and I have treated myself to make up, groceries, perfume and you even get special offers just for being part of the exclusive club. Sephora even have a loyalty system or if you like to go on coffee dates try Costa or Starbucks cards.

How do you save money when you shop?

  1. I've only just got back in to money saving as I've had to tighten my purse strings recently. I'm loving the amount of app's and loyalty schemes there are atm (I've only just signed up to Superdrug!), but I have never heard of My Favourite Voucher Cods before. Thanks for sharing! :)

    1. I love using the superdrug card because they let you do split payment so you can just knock a little off an item where as boots and nectar etc you have to have the full amount x

  14. To be honest, we are not very good at saving money when shopping as it does take a little bit of extra effort and we are lazy when it comes to that. We do have a clubcard though :)

  17. I use Quidco for my cashbook though maybe I should look at Top Cash back too. I find The Works loyalty card is the best. 5p for every pound spent and it really mounts up. I did all my Christmas shopping there and got £22 on my card!
