If I gave you £1000 cash right now what would you spend it on?
That would be an epic Christmas right! Or deposit for the holiday of your dreams, a years gym subscription, hotel stay for Disney Land.
£500 goes a long way! And I am going to tell you how I save £500 this year using My VIP Card.
So to set the scene a little bit in case you have not heard of My VIP Card, it’s a card that saves you money when you shop!
How I did it
I am going to give you a detailed break down of how I saved £500 in one year just by doing things I do every day!
So to start with my weekly shop. I shop in Sainsbury’s every week and on average I spend around £80 on my food shop. For the last year I have bought vouchers through My VIP Rewards for my weekly shop saving 5%, so over the year I have saved £208 on my weekly shop!
I have visited the cinema 9 times. We never used to go this much but with a saving of 40% it means its much more affordable for my family!
We saved £12 every time we went, coming in at a massive £108 saved that is just for 2 adults and one child! Imagine what you could save if you have more than one child!
I have coffee and cake at least once a week. With 10% off at my favourite coffee shop it really saves! Say £7 for coffee and cake with 10% off that is 70p a week , coming in at £36.40 a year, and I go at least once a week! How many of you have a Costa or Starbucks every day?
If you bought a Costa latte every working day for a whole year you would save £54.60 using My VIP Card
I take the kids to soft play at least twice a month! At 10% off that is £14.40 a year saving
I get my eyelashes done once a month at a cost of £45 , with 15% off I save £6.75 a month making a saving of £81 a year just on eyelashes
I got my hair done twice this year at a cost of £80 each time, I saved 10% so saved £16 on hair
I have kids , which means I have a messy house! So I have a cleaner who comes for two hours once a week! Guess what I saved on that! £135.20
My car needed serviced and it new tyres, new windscreen wipers, new brake fluid , plus the service itself, I saved £53
I wanted a new mobile phone, so I used the rewards portal to get cash back and got a whopping £80
Every time I wanted something I thought about where I could get discount. I accumulated £176 of cashback this year just through buying thing I use regularly online such as cosmetics, hair products, toothpaste! Getting the train to places for work!
I saved 10% on a spa day with my mummy friends and saved £8.50
This year bought every birthday present and Christmas present this year using My VIP Card and saved £76, I bought amazing unique gifts from local suppliers!
I am a food lover and regularly go out for meals, but to make it realistic for people who are on a budget. I will use the example of 1 meal out for two per quarter , 3 courses at an average of 15% off say £60 for the meal a saving of £36 a year
We go for ice cream as a treat around once a month, I always treat myself! Why not! I have saved around £20 a year on ice cream and treats
This is just the stuff I have tracked, not including other days out with the kids, clothing I have bought for Harriet , Window cleaning, Airport Parking , Hotel stays and more!
The total I have tracked this year alone that I have saved £1,105.10
