I have been with MSE a number of years and each year I have become better and better at making sure that I spend my money wisely. I find that recording the savings I am making no matter how small reminds me that if I take care of the pennies the pounds will take care of themselves.

Littlewoods Clearance bargains via eBay: :T

1. V By Very Chambray Men's shorts £3.99 saved £21.01

2. Reebok Supremium Ladies Black T-shirt £4.99 saved £17.01

3. V By Very Black Ruffle Jumper £7.99 saved £30.01

4. V By Very Black/cream High Neck Striped Jumper £5.99 saved £26.01

5. V By Very Men's Navy Woven Jogger Shorts £4.99 saved £27.01

Plus I saved £15.80 on P & P costs
Plus a £5 discount because I had spent £20 plus
Plus I used an eBay 20% voucher code which saved me another £4.59

1 hopper bus journey worth 75p

Free Metro Newspaper 20p

Council Tax Support for 2017 to 2018 £899.83

Tesco Mid Week Delivery Saver cost me £40 for the year in 2017 but I saved £263 on the price of the individual delivery slots I used ( Tesco delivery drivers deliver to my kitchen which is really helpful as I live in a maisonette and there are so many stairs to negotiate) :T

Revolution Super Light 4 Wheeled Suitcase from Tesco Direct which was half price in the Sale so I saved £22.50 and I got free delivery worth £3 because I have a Delivery Saver Mid Week Plan and I had spent over £10 on my order :T

Poundland Bargains: :)

2 X Maltesers and Friends small selection pack half price saved me £1

4 X 6 Packets of Sensations crisps saved me £2.80

Superdrug In Store Shop:
