Like most young family's, we pretty much live pay cheque to pay cheque.
We have a savings account in which we put some of our hard earned cash into each month. Not as much as I'd have liked, but it's there all the same and it does make a big difference.
We also have a Christmas fund, making the annual event a whole lot less stressful, especially given the amount of people we have to buy for at that time of year.
We also have a Tesco Club Card, a Nectar Card, a Boot Advantage Card and we collect the in store food stamps at Tesco, Sainsburys and Iceland to help with the ever mounting costs of a growing family.
