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....

what's in Poppy's Easter basket | 2018 | toddler Easter treats |

Easter goodies for my Toddler 

Always another holiday isn't there. I like to make Poppy a box for each special occasion throughout the year; Christmas eve box, Halloween trick or treat bag and Easter is no exception. This Easter i have gone for the more traditional items like my mum used to get us when we were little; books, stickers, chocolate egg, etc... I've not gone as over the the top as I usually do. We are also buying the stuff we know Poppy is really interested in, her favourite characters and bits she can interact with us on as well

The items in the box are not to have in one go, half of this is being used for her Easter egg hunt in the garden. We have gone for the play/learning items this year, she loves books at the moment and we read to her every night. As she enjoys it so much i decided to get her The Gruffalo £5.99 from Waterstones and the Peter rabbit sticker activity book £2 from the Works.

A pack of Bunny crayons £1 from Poundland, Peppa pig play cards £2 fro…

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 so dont throw away b…
