Most of us are feeling the pinch at the moment, but making a few small changes really can make a big difference to our household finances.

Many of these suggestions involve easy changes to existing habits, so in a few weeks they can be a (cheaper) part of normal life. And lots of our tips come from real mums, who have found ways to feel more in control of their money - and their lives!

If you are experiencing more serious money issues, go straight here.

Use your Netmums site to help:

Nearly New - buy baby gear in great condition at a fraction of the price, or even for free, on your local nearly new page.

Competitions and special offers - if you don't enter you'll never win! Watch out for lots of special offers and competitions each week.

Planning meals - planning your weekly meals can save you money and prevent all those pricey impulse buys you succumb to at the supermarket. Use the meal planner and write a shopping list in advance to avoid extra spending.

Keeping in touch and making friends - hold your meetups at the local park and invite other mums for a picnic rather than meeting at a local cafe. When the weather's bad, you could all try a free event like story time at the local library.

Cooking on a budget - check out our practical solutions for healthy meals that don't cost a fortune.

Flexible working - we've got some great tips for mums who fancy dipping their toes back into the world of work - from freelancing, home working and part-time jobs, you can find everything you need to know in our working from home section.

Plan your spending - use the Netmums budget planner to reveal your spending habits and identify areas where you can cut down.
