Weight – 1lb gain
Feeling – I’m actually not surprised because I’ve eaten pretty bad this week. My back has been really bad and I’ve been on strong painkillers which have knocked me for 6 so we’ve just eaten whatever is easiest.
Still as much in love xx
Anyone else impatiently waiting for the stores to bring out some spring clothing? I love buying clothes. I always have and probably always will. The only thing that has changed is I don’t really buy super cheap items anymore. I still buy pretty cheap but I buy more items that I know are going to last longer.
I have 5 places that I buy most of my clothes from and I thought I’d share them with you because you all know I love me a list!
New look – I think 80% of my clothing is from here.
Ada and Alfred – I have three tees and a sweater and I love them!
Matalan – I find it hit and miss here. I made a large order around November and love everything but haven’t seen anything I like since.
Next – I don’t get a lot from here because it’s pricey but I got quite a few bits in the sale and I loved all of it so I think I’ll be ordering more. The quality is definitely better than cheaper stores.
Tesco – I used to buy lots when it was online but not so much now I have to physically go to a shop but when I do go, I always find something I like.
Simply Be – I like the range of priced items they have here and the sizes are more generous too.
Where are your favourite places to shop?

Weight – 1lb loss
Feeling – I’ve been pretty good this week. I’ve stayed within my points. I did have a Chinese but I stuck to chicken and veg so not too high on points. Happy I’m going in the right direction.
I have featured money saving tips a few times on the blog because I want to help families and myself to save some pennies for either a rainy day, more holidays, Christmas, anything you’re hoping to save for. I have decided this year to branch out more and feature whole articles on the ways to can save money in more detail. First up is broadband providers. Almost every household has broadband now because it has become more a necessity rather than a luxury over the years. I couldn’t do my job if I didn’t have internet, some of my children’s homework is now done online and the teenagers games are like fortnite is online. So it’s definitely something we would struggle to be without. Sad but true.
But there are so many different broadband providers out there that it can become a bit of a mind field and sometimes it feels easier to just pick the cheapest one or the first one you see. Also a lot of people tend to go on what friends or family recommend. Of course some word of mouth is good but you should still search around because what works for one family, may not work for another.
But I’ve found there are ways you can pick the best one for you.
There are three types of broadband available in the UK right now. They are:
ADSL, also called standard or non-fibre broadband
Superfast broadband, also called fibre broadband
Ultrafast broadband, also called gigabit broadband
Look to see which is best for you and your household. Don’t pay for something you don’t need.
They are the best tips I have found that work. I will say it’s not always best to go for the cheapest deal.
Also if you already have broadband, take a look at when your contract started because if it’s at an end, it may be worth ringing them to try and get a better deal or looking around for a better deal and switching.
I know a few people that switch regularly. It may seem like a hassle but it really can be worth it to have extra pennies in the bank.
