Earlier in the year we set out on a mission to find the best tips from savvy parents on how to save both time and money during daily life. We had an overwhelming response from savvy parenting bloggers, resulting in our Parenting Life Hack Guides for Feeding, Potty Training, Long Car Journeys and Family Holidays Abroad.
Now it’s time to pick the best of the best in our list of the top parenting life hacks. Please add any of your own using the comments box at the bottom of the post. Enjoy!
Slashing Family Food Bills
Cut the cost of your family food bill by putting together a meal plan each week and then do your grocery shopping online and STICK to your list.
Grocery voucher codes are usually available for your first shop so see which has supermarket has the best offer rather than always going for your usual.
Get your kids involved with cooking and food preparation so they eat what’s on the plate and no food ends up in the bin at meal-times.
Potty Training Made Easy
Before you start potty training, let your toddler pick their own potty so they feel involved with the process from day one.
Use heat-sensitive stickers during potty training to make the experience more enjoyable for your little ones.
Reward and praise throughout the whole process using little incentives and reward charts.
Affordable Family Travel
Keep the car tidy on those long car journeys by attaching a shoe tidy to the back of the front-seats. It’s perfect to keep everything in place and the kids can get things out as and when they please.
Compare and save using sites like Kayak and Skyscanner before you book ANY travel arrangements to get the best deal. Then get an extra saving on top by checking if iLikeOffers.co.uk has any voucher codes available.
Get an international sim card if you plan to use your phone a lot while you’re away and then wave goodbye to any roaming charges.
