The Parent Club

Loyalty cards, tips and tricks

Here are a few things I found helpful, easy ways to save money, advice on pregancy, early stages of parent hood, etc...

 For the regular boots loyalty card; collect 4 points for every £1 spent. In the parents club it's 10 points for every £1 spent, crafty ey!? Not only that but you also receive in the post 20% off certain lines, £5 off when you spend £20, free ellas kitchen cook book for toddlers recipes, etc... it really is worth having. I managed to save up £35 worth of points to spend online or in store.
Tips; head into your local boots ask one of the shop assistants for the zookeepers children's book... its free! 

 match and more card for every 5,000 points collected you recieve a £5 voucher. Head to your local Morrison's for more info They will happily explain the stages of how it works. 

Emma's diary;

NCT: nearly New sale
It is a charity that offer information and suport on pregancies, birth and early parenthood. They offer antenatal and postnatal courses. They also promote preloved items at their nearly New sale events which many parents have given great reviews on. I'm one of them and they are brilliant. There's so many quality baby and maternity clothes, toys, baby funiture, etc... and at such low prices.
 They don't do them on the island any more but I have found a nearly new event in Portsmouth on the 24th of June....

How to Declutter your Home and Keep it that Way

Time to declutter What helps me destress, be productive and keep myself organised is getting rid of all the bits and bobs i keep laying around the house. Yes, that drawer full of crap and all the kids toys that keep mounting up after Christmas and birthdays. I start with 4 bags; charity, selling, friends/family and bin. You don't have to do all of these in one day, pick a room or an area for one afternoon while the baby sleeps and the toddler is settled with snacks and a colouring book and get busy. *Rooms* Bathroom- the cabinets, products you dont use or are out of date, bath toys, etc... Kitchen- food packaging, out of date products, pots and pans you don't use or need to replace Living room- the mounting of paper work hidden in drawers, kids toys, shoes, etc... Dining room- ( same as above) Bedroom- clothes you don't wear, brought but never used, old bed, bedroom drawers and tables, worn out shoes (good quality shoes can be repaired fairly cheaply s

Money saving Hacks | Christmas | 2020 edition |

It's that time of the year...   Remembering all the kids Christmas activities, nursery and school nativity plays, Christmas gift shopping, scheduling friends and family to come over during the holidays, teacher gifts, phonics, cooking the Turkey....   1- Plan Christmas a year to 6 months in advance  I know this sounds nuts but honestly knowing what is happening and who you're visiting makes it a lot easier and less stressful.  2- Buy gifts in the boxing day and January sales. Buy and stock up throughout the year on all the sales. It's amazing how much money you can save by doing this. I manage to save up to £200/£300 by doing this each year.  3- The things you don't think of buying in those sales. Wrapping paper, christmas cards, tape, gift tags, gift bags, Christmas arts and crafts for the kids, stickers, advent calendars (the non-chocolate ones) I brought the Harry Potter charms bracelet advent calendar and frozen 2 advent calendar in Sainsburys

5 creative ways to make extra money

1- sell unwanted items Is it time to do a clear out? Need a little extra money? Sell those trousers you've not worn in 3 months and sell the dress you've only worn twice.  Make sure all items are washed, no marks and no rips etc... these are all things that will help you in the selling process. Take lots of photos of the items, compare on other selling sites to make sure you check out your competitors. Good places to sell are facebook pages, Ebay, depop, Amazon, car boot sale and friends or family  2- creative skills  Are you creative with woodwork, clay, jewellery making, etc... if so put these hobbies into a place online and sell them! Don't forget to charge for materials, hours per day, time to take photos and uploading,etc. 3- teach another language  If you have a second language then good on you, another skill to write down on your cv! Launch a new website of what you can provide, zoom language classes, work sheets, online courses, etc. Make it clear on what you can pr
