Talk Money Week, 12th-18th November
Talk Money Week is a new public awareness week from the Money Advice Service aiming to change our general reticence around discussing money. It is being held from 12th-18th November and will include events across the UK designed to help people have more open conversations about their finances.
My money story
Living within our means
We don’t waste money buying things we don’t need and anything we do purchase is more often than not second hand. As the person in charge of food, I always plan our meals and shop using a list. It is very rare that food is wasted at Shoestring Cottage. Mr Shoestring is super handy and great at repairing stuff and DIY. All this means that we no longer have any debt and we can afford the days out and holidays that we really enjoy!
