I used to spend way out of control with our food shopping but in order to be able to remain at home for the kids I needed to re-evaluate and make tweaks here and there to the way we were spending our money.
Initially it was difficult after moving the Netherlands as I simply didn’t have a clue where to find everything at the right price but now I think I have quite a good handle on it. If you are an expat, a tourist or even a Dutch national the following tips can help you save – big time!
I love living in the Netherlands but despite having many similarities to life in the UK there are certain things that I still needed to get used to.
I decided to put pen to paper and make a list of some of the things that I have now got used to (or am still trying to). This list is not meant as a negative but rather my observations – in fact I find a lot of the points a definite plus.
