Hello and welcome! My name is Claire (Stapo to some) and I created Stapo’s thrifty life hacks.
I’m (almost) 35 and I live in Greater Manchester with my partner Keir and our son, Arthur. Keir and I met, were living together and expecting our son within a 14-month whirlwind. It was all planned though. When you know, you know, as they say. We were supposed to get married in August 2020, but due to the pandemic, we have postponed until May 2021.
In my professional life, I’m a former journalist-turned-copywriter, with over 14 years of digital experience. This means that I’m able to work with companies and brands in a number of exciting ways.
I’d been meaning to set up a blog for a lot of years, but I never quite got around to it. However, when I was furloughed from my job as a travel copywriter in April 2020, I decided the time was now. Stapo’s thrifty life hacks was then born.
What can you expect to find here?
There are lots of ideas that claim to make life better. But do they actually work? I’m hoping that you can benefit from my experience, as I’ve tried a lot of different hacks over the years. Some stuff has worked an absolute treat, whilst other things haven’t been as fruitful.
I’ve become an expert in getting more for less and I want to share my knowledge with you. I’ll be honest about what has and what hasn’t worked for me, so you can decide if you’d like to try it for yourself. My aim is to create a one-stop hack shop, so if you’re looking to do things quicker and more efficiently, then you’ve come to the right place.
In addition to this, I’m always trying to sprinkle some extra happiness into life, so I will also be sharing articles about things that have brought me joy.
Overall, I hope that this website will help to make your life smoother and happier.
