UK Money Bloggers Easter Giveaway – Win an M&S Hamper

I’m extremely excited to be teaming up with some fabulous money bloggers and friends to bring you the UK Money Bloggers Easter giveaway. Easter is one of my favourite times of the year; with Spring in full flow, lighter evenings, and a sense of newness in the air, there’s almost no better time to celebrate with family and loved ones.

Easter can also hit your pocket hard, though. I definitely find it tough to resist some of the beautiful treats available at Easter, and it can be easy to over indulge (and over spend) on the traditional Easter Sunday dinner. With that in mind, there’s no better time to get your name down for the chance to win one of 3 fabulous Marks and Spencer Easter hampers that we have up for grabs as prizes in our UK Money Bloggers Easter giveaway.

Do make sure you head over and visit the other UK Money Bloggers involved in this fabulous giveaway. Between them they are a superstar wealth of invaluable knowledge and information when it comes to money and finances.

This Easter, some of the UK Money Bloggers have come together to offer you the chance to win one of three M&S Easter hampers. Three lucky winners will win an Easter hamper delivered before Easter. Keep reading to find out how you can enter.

    Go shopping in supermarkets in the evening, they do reductions of up to 90% to get rid of stuff

  3. Lou anderson on April 3, 2019 at 8:00 am

    Yummy!!! Chocolate!!!

  6. plumbobmummy on April 3, 2019 at 12:23 pm

    I try to only go to the shops when I need something and ask myself ‘do I need this?’ Before I put anything in my basket

  7. Toni Davis on April 3, 2019 at 12:33 pm

    Thanks for chancr

  8. Claire Ross on April 3, 2019 at 12:42 pm

    I shop using Top Cashback

  9. The Chocolate Chap on April 3, 2019 at 12:47 pm

    Actually a lovely idea… and M&S chocs are usually very tasty

  10. Kelly Whitfield on April 3, 2019 at 4:44 pm

    We use a code finding website that automatically finds codes when you go to buy something on the internet if you save it.

  11. valerie harbut on April 3, 2019 at 6:16 pm

    Always make a shopping list – and keep to it.

  12. Olga carpentet on April 3, 2019 at 6:29 pm

    Make a shopping list

  13. Laura Walker on April 3, 2019 at 7:12 pm

    With kids I find facebook marketplace great so many great deals

  14. Oliver on April 3, 2019 at 7:50 pm

    Lovely chocolate

  15. Carole Nott on April 3, 2019 at 10:11 pm

    I try to buy larger sizes of supermarket products that are better value

  16. Sam Wakefield on April 3, 2019 at 10:56 pm

    Use sites like Quidco to buy things you were going to buy anyway – top cashbacks are things like insurance, utility, mobile phone and subscription contracts – have earned and received £2050 so far!

  17. Sam Wakefield on April 3, 2019 at 11:04 pm

    bigger isn’t always better – sometimes the larger sized food / household products which you expect to be better value are actually more expensive in terms of £/100g

  18. ElizM on April 4, 2019 at 11:06 am

    Aim for simplicity. We don’t need so much stuff!

  19. Sarah Cooper on April 4, 2019 at 2:11 pm

    Use an app like quidco to get cashback on your purchases.

  20. RACHAEL MCCADDEN on April 5, 2019 at 8:12 am

    My tip is if you do not need anything do not take your bank card out with you as you could be tempted to use it. Also if you need to buy something use cash instead of a card as you can see what your spending

  21. Karen hutchinson on April 5, 2019 at 5:54 pm

    Don’t buy what you can’t afford

  22. samantha jerome on April 6, 2019 at 3:48 pm


  23. Keith Hunt on April 6, 2019 at 8:00 pm

    I buy pine bed frames for about £5 for the planed wood which saves me £100s for planed wood for crafts.

  24. Gerri Tennant on April 6, 2019 at 9:40 pm

    Use cash not cards.

  25. Paul Ham on April 7, 2019 at 5:39 am

    Get yourself a separate bank account and transfer 1,2,5 (or even 10!) pounds a week online every saturday or when u like from your main account. Make an alarm to remind you, you must do it regularly every week! You won’t miss it if you keep it small. Dont have any debit card for this account, don’t use it for anything else! By first years end you’ll have at least £300 in there, probably much more!

  26. Mr Keith Crooks on April 7, 2019 at 11:39 am

    Take advantage of all the coupons and vouchers and promos and special offers you can lay your hands on!

  27. Rachel Butterworth on April 7, 2019 at 4:31 pm

    Keep a log for a couple of weeks of everything you spend money on ,even the small stuff like a cup of coffee. You’ll soon see ways that you can cut back and save.

  28. Emma Gallagher (@emstargally) on April 7, 2019 at 4:32 pm

    I always buy the BOGOF deals on general household items and my friend who shops in a different supermarket does the same and then we swap with each other.

  29. Chloe R on April 7, 2019 at 5:38 pm

    As a university student, I save money on food by cooking from scratch – use plenty of frozen and tinned items, batch cook and freeze it! I’m still amazed by how much my friends waste on takeaways and convenience foods – they often prefer my cooking too!

  30. Karen Brady on April 7, 2019 at 6:07 pm

    Collect free samples of shampoo,conditioner and other toiletries to take on holiday

    Make sure you look for voucher codes for every online purchase.

  33. Beccy Rowley on April 8, 2019 at 6:10 pm

    I opened my little girl a savings account when she was a baby which I pay ten pounds a month into and any money which she gets for birthdays and Christmas. When she’s 18 i’m sure she will be grateful to have a couple of grand to put towards car insurance or uni fees or even a deposit on a house.

  34. Debbie Kent on April 9, 2019 at 7:29 pm

    ‘Make do and mend’ just as appropriate as it ever was!

    Set budgets for days out and avoid unnecessary big purchases!

  36. Becky on April 10, 2019 at 11:35 am

    Writing what you’ve spent down as you go & keeping a countdown of the money coming out.

  37. judy kennedy on April 11, 2019 at 1:06 pm

    Sounds obvious, but take cash out before you do the your food shopping and take a list, otherwise a food shop just eats up in my case limited funds

  38. Katy Holloway on April 11, 2019 at 8:29 pm

    Buy non perishable items in bulk when they’re on offer.

  39. Rebecca Nisbet on April 11, 2019 at 9:29 pm

    be thrifty, upcycle, get bargains from charity shops and when making big purchases, do a bit of research first, you can usually find it cheaper somewhere else.

  40. greig23 on April 12, 2019 at 11:11 am

    use cashback websites wherever you can

  41. Vivienne Wilkes on April 12, 2019 at 12:46 pm

    Menu planning

  43. Joanna Tolhurst on April 12, 2019 at 4:46 pm

    Charity shops for clothing and handbags – nothing better than a good rummage and its amazing what you can find.

  44. Sara Ford on April 12, 2019 at 7:06 pm

    Planning your meals, making a shopping list and sticking to it.

  45. Ann Skamarauskas on April 12, 2019 at 8:59 pm

  48. AnnaSSS on April 13, 2019 at 3:41 am

    Freez leftovers and use them later. Save a lots of cash in my budget.x

  49. Cristina on April 13, 2019 at 12:05 pm

    Set up a direct debit to pay your credit card balance IN FULL each month – then it doesn’t matter what interest there is on the card so you may as well get yourself one that gives cashback for all your spending.

  50. christine westlake on April 13, 2019 at 2:47 pm

    do not take use by dates to mean food is bad and not good enough to eat, check whether it is still ok to eat first.

  51. Cheryl Potts on April 13, 2019 at 4:28 pm

    Chocolate + eggs, better than bacon + eggs !

  52. Rosalind Amison on April 13, 2019 at 4:33 pm

    Take a re usable coffee cup with you on days out. Many coffee shops offer a discount to people who bring their own.

  53. Caroline Signey on April 13, 2019 at 5:47 pm

    Make meals from scratch instead of takeaways and convince foods

  54. Stephen Shepherd on April 13, 2019 at 7:04 pm

    Plenty of chocolate, I might even share.

  55. Emma Fox on April 14, 2019 at 5:23 am

    I often buy my evening meals from the reduced section of the supermarket on the way home from work.

  56. Lindsay Els on April 14, 2019 at 7:03 am

    Freeze everything to reduce waste

  57. Sarah on April 14, 2019 at 8:05 am

  60. Claire Lacey on April 14, 2019 at 8:48 am

    Always write a list before you go shopping. That way you won’t be influenced by things you’d like but don’t actually need.

  61. FameAsserLUFC on April 14, 2019 at 1:51 pm

    Whoopsie Aisle for the win

    I put the money I want to save in a savings account.

  63. Fiona Hossell (@fiona0999) on April 14, 2019 at 3:13 pm

    Anything left in the bank account at the end of the month goes straight into a savings account. And buy Easter eggs after Easter, when they’re half price!

  64. Lynne Slatter on April 14, 2019 at 5:04 pm

    Set up a standing order (no matter how small)in to a savings account, so that every month you just get used to it being a regular expense

  65. Heather Hawley on April 14, 2019 at 8:26 pm

    Buy from the reduced sections of the supermarket

  66. Sue Clarke on April 14, 2019 at 9:07 pm

    Turn the Sunday roast leftovers into a curry for Monday’s supper or packed lunches
