My name is Clair and I am a bargain loving, money saving and penny pinching enthusiast. I first developed my thrifty ways during my time at Edge Hill University. I perfected a way of living on the tightest of budgets that still allowed me to do all the things I wanted to – which usually involved drinks at the Student Union and a pizza from Scoozie.

Now, in my late twenties, budgeting is a way of life for me; I make sure I’m getting the best value for money whenever I part with cash. Like anyone my age, I am juggling a busy social life, the cost of day to day living and trying to save to buy my first house. Fortunately, my thrifty ways mean I can save, spend and sometimes splash out on a few luxuries without blowing my budget.

I love sharing my money saving ways with my friends and family; I’m now excited to share them with you. This blog will contain lots of my savvy spending secrets, bulk buy bargains, delicious – yet purse friendly – recipes, budget beauty buys and general thriftiness!  There may also be a story or two about my faithful furry pal Poppy the Pom!
