How Being In A Relationship Can SAVE You Money

We all know how much a relationship can COST you.. in the beginning there may be elaborate dates, hotel rooms and gifts but once the dust has settled did you know that being 1 of 2 can actually SAVE you money? I’m sure my husband would disagree but the below shows that discounts you could benefit from.

Of course it’s all relative, a super scrimper single gal is bound to save more than her not so frugal, frivolous married friend but it’s interesting to see where I SHOULD be better off. Bizarrely my energy bills are lower now than they were when I lived in my first, TINY house but that’s mainly due to shopping around for the cheapest provider which honestly I never thought was REALLY worth doing but I would definitely recommend now. I would imagine kids play a role in this too, yes they can be expensive to ‘maintain’ but a couple who were out every weekend will easily save more than that now that they’re staying home with the tiddlywinks and a takeaway. On the total flip side I often wonder how I was possibly always SO skint when I lived at home with no bills or responsibilities.. anyone else? I should have been RICH! 😉

How do you save money on the ‘boring’ stuff?

    I try to be quite careful with money, mainly because I don’t earn a lot. But being a beauty blogger doesn’t help as I’m constantly tempted to buy new things… Anyway, before I lived with my partner, I used to house-share with other people and this really helps to cut down the cost of rent, bills, etc.

    My biggest tip is probably to try and budget a bit which basically means work out what you have coming in vs what you have going out and try to make it balance somehow. Also, try to roughly keep track of what your spending your money on so you can see if there are areas of overspending that you could easily cut down on.

    Money, eh? Gotta love it but gotta hate it sometimes too! :-p

    Really interesting read! I don’t live with my boyfriend yet but when we do this post will definitely come in handy.

    My biggest tip is to plan ahead! If you are going food shopping, plan your meals before hand, don’t go in there hungry and don’t get caught up in all the deals! Yes, 3 for 2 may help sometimes but only when you actually need and use those items!

    I’m so terrible at budgeting! I try and pay all my essentials out as soon as I get paid so I’m not tempted to spend more. Then I can say when it’s gone, it’s gone. I also always make sure I check all the voucher code apps, and look out for a bargain! I also have a second job at weekends to stop me going out as much as I would.

    I know myself, and however much I earn I always find a way to spend it!!

    Gotta disagree 😛 I spend so much more on bills and food since living with my other half. I’m super thrifty and wouldn’t spend much on food, he appears to be allergic of switching of lights and only eats meat 😮
