Can Great Sankey family become UK's savviest?

First published in News

A GREAT SANKEY family is bidding to be crowned the UK’s savviest family after discovering how to beat the credit crunch.

Mum Nicola Phipps, aged 30, dad Richard Wedge, aged 34, son James Wedge, aged five, and daughter Amy Wedge, aged one, have been shortlisted in the annual money-saving advice competition, Nectar Savvy Family.

The money conscious family was selected as one of only eight finalist families chosen to keep a savvy blog for six weeks.

Nicola said: “We have always been quite savvy but have been even more careful with money since having the two children.

“We have lived a savvy lifestyle for around five years. Being chosen to compete in the competition, blog with seven other great families and share our ideas with others has been amazing.”

The family deemed the savviest will be treated to a £10,000 prize package from Nectar partners, which includes a family holiday worth up to £3,000 from Expedia and £1,000 gift card from Sainsbury’s.

The family’s top tips include completing your food shop later in the day to make the most of reductions and signing up to theme parks and playarea newsletters to be the first to hear about deals and offers on days out.

...... add to these ideas, signing up for newsletters for places where you go on holiday. Having something to eat before you go shopping (late in the day) as you buy more when hungry. Saving and using whatever vouchers you can find on that shop...... etc etc
