Hello! My name is Claire (Stapo to some) and I created Stapo’s thrifty life hacks.
I’m 35 and I live and work 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.
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 out there that claim to save you money, make you money and make life better. But do they actually work? On this site, I share my knowledge with you. I’m honest about what has and what hasn’t worked for me, so you can decide if you’d like to try something for yourself.
I hope that this website will help to make your life smoother and happier. My Start Here page explains how to navigate the website, so you can get the most out of your time here.
