. Consider hand-me-downs Hand-me-downs are a great way to save money - and have a positive impact on the environment. If you have friends with children around the same age, it’s worth asking them if they have anything that would fit your child. Local marketplaces and apps like Depop, Facebook marketplace and Gumtree can help you pick up a bargain - you could even make some money by selling the items that no longer fit your little one. Look out for school forums To help parents keep up with the cost, many schools now have forums where parents can buy and sell quality school attire and equipment for a fraction of the new price, ensuring your kid is kitted out in the school’s colours and branding, and minimising waste. Visit voucher and cashback websites Voucher websites like hotukdeals could be a great place to look for voucher codes and freebies. Sites like these can also give you a nudge as to which supermarkets are running promotions, with the validity of the offers voted by like-minded bargain hunters. Similarly, cashback websites give you money back every time you shop online - on everything from clothes to toys and even activities. Share toys and games A great way to save on toys and games is to team up with other parents and take part in a swap shop, where you exchange toys to keep the little ones entertained. It’s important to set boundaries so you know what is being swapped and when you can expect your items back - and in what condition you expect them to be returned to you.
