Helping you to make and save money!

If this is your first time here, then welcome. I’m here to help you to make and save money. I’ll help you to manage your mental health around your finances too.

I’ve been in debt, I’ve suffered with anxiety and I’m a mother. I also know that each of those things come with a particular set of challenges. So I try to help those who are feeling overwhelmed with tips and hacks to get through the rough days. But of course, it doesn’t all work, so I share that stuff too. Check out: no risk matched betting and the reasons I don’t think it exists.


I also share my experiences of motherhood.

This means that I could write about free money: easy ways to snap up extra cash, then an article like: how to make a vision board that really works, followed by a personal post like: Arthur, mummy and the double electric breast pump.

Mental health and your finances

I truly believe that money, time and happiness are all interlinked. Cash doesn’t buy you happiness, but it does buy you choice and time. It can also help you to reduce your stress levels and to achieve your dreams.

That’s why I’ve written articles like: coping with redundancy: what to do when you lose your job and how to find monthly goal ideas that will work for you. As I believe that these types of tips will help you to save more and make more.

Friendly finance tips

Each post on this blog has been written as if I’m speaking to a close friend, because I want this space to be real and authentic. So please read these articles in the spirit that they’re intended. I want you to imagine me chatting to you over a cuppa (or a beer).
