Hello, I’m Laura….

I’m a freelance writer, and live in Southampton with my husband Matt and our two daughters, Holly who’s seven and Abigail who’s five. I started this blog in January 2017 because I realised that we’d just survived five years of on/off maternity pay and not gone broke. If anything, we came out with slightly more due to careful planning and some savvy saving. 

Today, Savings 4 Savvy Mums is the place to come for daily family money saving tips, budget shopping lists, meal plans and easy ideas on how to save a family money. 

This blog is for every mum who thinks that they can’t save money day to day due to small in-comings or to many outgoings. I’m here to show you that anything is possible when you have the right help. 

I managed to have almost 3 years off work, and come out without any debt, and fed four people on a small retail managers wage. If I can do it, so can you!  

So if you’d like to know more about  what I get up to in more detail, read on…

My work includes everything from  writing short snappy how-to guides, to top tips posts, to more in-depth pieces.

I also develop budget recipes and meal plans, sometimes for media and often for brands. I also work with a select number of brands to bring a family money saving edge to their editorial campaigns.

As well as writing, I work on my YouTube channel and with brands to produce a range of fun but relatable content, from showing mums how to shop on a budget or how to cook and freeze meals when money is tight.

Thank you

So that’s me and this is Savings 4 Savvy Mums. Thanks so much for reading.

Please take a look around the rest of the site, drop me a line to say hello or if you have any questions, and I hope you find some of my ideas useful.
