Save a million for UK kids

I’m so proud to be supporting KidStart’s brilliant Save A Million for UK Kids campaign. They’re asking for us to share our ideas for saving what we can for our kids or for Barnado’s. You can share your best ideas for saving more for UK kids here, and the winner of the best suggestion will win £1000.

Saving for our children’s future is so important, especially in the current climate. There used to be a saying that you were always better off than your parents, but for many kids sadly that’s not going to be the case, so I really hope you’ll join me in supporting the campaign.

I'm saving an extra tenner a week by not taking the bus in the mornings (I’m even losing weight, bonus) and I’m also going to sort out our bottles of coppers.  But I’d love to hear your ideas – it would be fantastic if we could help the campaign reach that £1million target by Christmas.

    I sold some of my kids’ old toys on eBay and put the money into their savings accounts. They have no idea how much it was and were happy to spend a small portion of it on a replacement toy.

    That’s a brilliant idea Becky!

    I’ve invested in a bigger freezer. Now I can take more advantage of the BOGOFs in the supermarket, & can get the family sized veggi box & make up lots of soup & ready meals for us all. I’m wasting a lot less food now

    We have saved a fortune this year by growing our own salad, fruit and veg. We had to sacrifice some of our garden but it has been well worth it. We’ve had everything from courgettes, tomatoes and strawberries to salad leaves and green beans and it all means we are eating a lot healthier too. It’s so easy and you don’t need a big garden to do it. We were beginners and we’ve managed to save hundreds of pounds.

    I’ve started making pack lunches for my partner to take to work instead of him paying silly canteen prices. We can already see the difference it’s making to our money! 🙂
