Something I Havent Ever Done Before On My Blog

kids eat free, free food for kids, summer holidays, free or cheap meals for kids during summer holidays, cost of living crisis, struggling for money, feeding kids cheaply

Welcome back.

Today I have some news for you, it's about something a bit different and something I haven't done before. I am going to have my very first blog series where I share tips and tricks or hacks, whatever you want to call them, for things to do and ways to save money during the school holidays. 

I am going to write these type of posts throughout the year for each school holiday period, each post will have a different infographic depending on the season, the summer ones will all have the above infographic as the blog post photograph so they stand out, and as I said, other seasons will have a different photograph. 

Why The New Series?
With the cost of living crisis and prices of absolutely everything going up a ridiculous amount, everyone is trying to save where they can.  I think almost everyone I know has been impacted by the cost of living crisis, some more than others and it's a horrible feeling to be struggling financially. I have had situations in my life where I have been rock bottom financially and it was horrendous, I think posts like these may have helped me had there been blogs around during those times. 

My friend once said to me that I should write a book of tips to save money, and things I did with my children when they were little as she always found them really useful when she had her children and  while it's a nice idea and very kind of her,  I think it's more than advertourous for me,  but I can write a blog post or two, so that's where the new series comes in. 

When my children were younger,  I was a single parent for a while, and for some of the years of that time I struggled massively financially, it was a horrendous time in my life and one I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy. And myself and Simon, my partner have struggled financially also, especially when I was medically retired from the NHS and we lost my wage. Simon has also been made redundant twice, and both times weeks before Christmas, not ideal at all. 

I am not proclaiming to be a money saving expert by any means, I'll leave that up to Martin Lewis, but I would like to be able to help people by sharing my tips, tricks or hacks I learnt over the years which saved us money,  I will also be doing my research too and sharing my findings with you. 

What Will The Posts Be About?

I will be writing a variety of posts, there will be ideas to keep children entertained during the school holidays, ideas that don't cost a lot of money, there will be places I find that have deals and discount codes, how to find the best deals, places to eat cheaply or free, and basically anything I can share with you that might help make the school summer holidays a little bit easier on your pocket. 

I hope you think this is a good idea and I hope my posts will be able to help, if they help just one person, it'll be worth the effort of writing them. 

If you have any questions or suggestions, please let me know. 

Thanks for reading
