Katie wins #BudgetFun competition

Congratulations to our worthy winner of the #BudgetFun competition. Katie from Coventry wins the family ticket to Cadbury World for her contribution that also teaches valuable life skills to her children, as well as keeping the spending down!

Many thanks to all those that took part, we were overwhelmed with the number of responses and the creativity and imagination of your suggestions.

We hope you all had a fabulous half term. We will certainly be running some similar competitions later in the year. Keep following us on Facebook and Twitter to keep up to date.

This is Katie’s winning suggestion:

I find handing control of the budget to my daughter really works! She has her daily allowance and knows if we do less one day, we can save money to do something bigger the next day. If she wants to go somewhere really special, it means more days staying local, play dates, park trips, crafts, etc. She’s really taken to it and there’s less cries of things being unfair once she understands.”
