How to save money whilst raising money for charity - use my favourite voucher codes!

Thursday, 26 May 2016

If you are anything like me, when you are shopping or booking trips etc, the internet is often the quickest and best place to start, especially if you are shopping around for the best deals available.

Well, allow me to give you a tip! Instead of spending hours searching all over the web for the best deals, let me tell you about one website which can give you access to thousands of the best voucher codes available in just a couple of clicks.

With most people having a smart phone these days, it really couldn't be any easier to save yourself money when shopping online. Simply by remembering to check for any discount voucher codes either on the website, or by downloading the My Favourite Voucher Codes app.


Another tip of mine is to keep a list of gift ideas etc with you, and check various prices in different shops or on websites. By doing this I have often saved up to 50% just by shopping around or using a voucher. Quite often companies will also have discount delivery codes too, you just need to get into the habit of checking every time you buy - every pound counts and it will soon add up.




Not only will you save money by using My Favourite Voucher Codes, but you will also be helping others, as a huge 20% of their net profit is donated to charity! You can even have input into choosing the charity that will be supported, simply by voting on which charity you would like them to help monthly.

With thousands of the most up to date voucher codes available from more than 4,000 of the UK’s favourite retailers, what have you got to lose?!

Happy shopping, and don't forget to pop back and share what deals you found!



Secure your home in time for Summer!

In short, National Home Security May Day encourages Brits to secure their homes in time for summer. The May bank holidays are the perfect time to tackle domestic DIY and renovation projects, and research has revealed that this spring bank holiday, more than two-thirds of Brits will do just that!*

But whether you’re thinking about wallpapering the living room, re-tiling the bathroom, or building a conservatory to create your ‘dream home’, it’s important to think about protecting your property too.

With this is mind, National Home Security May Day, sponsored by home security specialist Yale, will take place on spring bank holiday Monday (30th May), with a run-up throughout May. The campaign will provide numerous home security tips and advice so that we can all ensure our homes are protected in time for summer.


According to research from Halifax, domestic burglaries increase by as much as 10% in the spring and summer months, with a huge 40% increase in outdoor thefts. This is a result of more of us leaving windows and doors open while we’re out in the garden enjoying the sunshine and also leaving valuables, such as bicycles and garden furniture, unsecured outside making them easy pickings for opportunistic thieves on the prowl.

There is also a marked increase in burglaries during summer months due to larger numbers of people going on holiday and leaving their houses empty, unsecure and unguarded. Simple, low cost security options can make a huge difference, and many ‘smart’ security products are a lot easier to fit than you might think.


As part of the May Day campaign, National Home Security Month are offering one lucky person the chance to win £100 worth of Love2shop vouchers and a Yale Smart Home Alarm & View Kit. To get involved, check out the Facebook page by searching for 'National Home Security Month'.

This year, home electronics retailer Maplin is also getting involved and will be offering radio and social media competitions, as well as in-store and online promotions, so keep your eyes peeled.
