Win a Aynsley Owl and the Pussycat Money Box

It's the time of the year where we all think about how we should have saved our money better throughout the year so that our bank balances didn't look so poorly after Christmas. And surely we should be teaching our kids about saving their pennies too.

I've started to introduce the idea of doing chores and earning pocket money to my eldest two daughters and they have just the place to store their hard earned pennies, their money boxes.

Now if this idea sounds good to you, then I have a fantastic competition for you to enter. House of Fraser have kindly allowed me to give away one of the Aynsley Owl and Pussycat money boxes worth £24.95 to one lucky reader.


Entering is simple, just fill out the rafflecopter form below by 11.59pm 3rd February 2015 to be in with a chance of winning. Rules are simple. You must be a UK resident and you must fill out entries correctly as all of them will be checked and verified.

Good luck.

  3. Use home delivery for your groceries, that way you only spend on what you need and are not tempted by extras, as you are when you walk around the supermarket. It only costs from £1 delivery and saves petrol and time.

  4. Have something to eat e.g. lunch before going food shopping. As you tend to buy more when hungry, being tempted by all that is to be seen in the Supermarket etc. So likely to save money, reduce food wastage etc.
