Hi, I’m Angela, blogger and content creator here at A Money Minded Mum. I’m a 40 something mum of four and I live in the north-west of England with my husband, our two youngest children Daisy and Jake and our cat, Mo Mo.
I am passionate about money-making and money-saving and sharing what knowledge I have so others can do the same.
After having my daughter in 2011 and realising the cost of childcare would be more than the earnings I gave up my job in retail to become a stay at home mum. I started this blog in 2013 as a way of documenting our adventures as a family and also to share the things I had learned about stretching a budget once we became a single income family.
The blog has evolved over the years and we are now predominantly a personal finance blog although other topics can be found in our archives. See the links below for samples of our previous work:
My husband Chris works hard behind the scenes, he takes care of all the technical bits that come with a blog. Without him and his unwavering support, I never would have come as far as I have with the blog.
As a family we try to live a frugal and thrifty lifestyle, saving money on the necessities so we can enjoy a few luxuries like days out and holidays. We still have lots of fun and I enjoy the challenge of finding a good deal and having a great day out on a tiny budget. I want to help other families like ours to stretch their budgets so they can still have lots of fun experiences as a family.
We have been featured in the following publications:
Here is a selection of brands we have collaborated with over the years:
