Yay, it’s Friday, and what better way to celebrate the end of the week than with a special look at all our marvellous HIBS100 thrift bloggers, saving money with style.
First off, we’re going to plunge straight into that C word we’re all avoiding. Yes, Christmas. It’s definitely coming, but never fear, Ricky of Skint Dad has some clever ways to lessen its impact on our purses. He has a great feature this week on all kinds of nifty ways to swerve those tills and get your hands on some festive freebies.
Becky Goddard-Hill from Thrifty Home is featuring a great post on the easiest and cheapest way to revamp your home decor – by throwing a few new cushion covers on your existing pads. This simple step really does so much to change the whole look of a room. Pop over to Becky’s to see some of the bright and beautiful covers she’s found.
Over on Mum’s Savvy Savings, Emma has some brilliant tips on saving money on car repairs. I don’t know whether it’s just me, but as soon as my car is being serviced, the red pound signs start flashing. I’m certainly going to take note of Emma’s great advice and see if I can save a few pennies here in future.
And, for some extra special inspiration, there’s a rather amazing open letter to herself from Emma at The Coupon Queen, explaining how she’s turned her life around in just one year, using her money-saving blog and a lot of positive thoughts, via the law of attraction. How great would it be if you could do that, too?
