  1. Kirstie Bain 2 entries. Join every single baby club so that you receive free samples and money off vouchers. From supermarket ones to baby food and nappy clubs.

    2. Contact your local surestart centre (whilst you can). Mine recently held a cook and taste session. This was a free session for 3 mums with a nutritionist. We helped her cook 3 different meals for a weaning baby and she showed us how to turn them into a meal for all the family. We got to take home each meal, which latest for 2 weeks. We also received a free sippy cup and starter bowl

  2. michaela britton with 3 extra entries (hipp 'like' your fb 'like' and sharing on my fb page.
    Try and make as much food from scratch as possible and freeze for when you need it. Buy fresh fruit and puree it for weaning and also try fresh veg or left over veg from dinners.
    Join as many fb or websites that you can that offer freebies or samples, especially supermarket baby groups as they always give out freebies

  3. write out your family meals for the week, then only buy the food u need for those meals, this has cut our shopping bill right down!

  4. HI im a friend of both pages and im following this blog im also going to share this on my fb wall.

    My food tip join the money saving expert you caan get a ton of vouchers off there and it also informs you of any offers on at your local store.

  5. We'll be giving him what we eat for the most part, although we will be giving him some puréed organic food too! I'm a fan of both pages and I'm following the blog with networked blogs (Arriane Preston), so 4 entries total :)

  6. Elizabeth Williams, 3 entries all together. Cook food from scratch and freeze any extras for further meals for the family and make your own purees and free extra for weaning. Also joining loads of baby and fb sites to get any freebies and samples going free.

  7. my tip- when I buy a food I am looking for offers " buy one get one free " or "take 3 pay for 2"

    I have liked both FB pages as Marzena Szy
    I follow your blog as Marzena
    I shared on my FB wall as Marzena Szy

    5 entries for me, please


  8. Money Saving tip- Go to your local fruit and veg shop when buying fresh fruit... you can often get twice the amount of food than at a supermarket for the same price... plus it's often in better condition.

    I follow your blog as manfa.lou or Samantha Fenn, Like you on FB, Like HIPP on FB and have shared the comp on my FB wall

    5 entries in total =)

  9. Sharon Curran 3 entries (Liked on facebook, Follow through Google Connect, liked Hip Organic Page on FB and commented here).

    My top tip for money saving when it comes to food is to find out what time your local supermarket reduces all the days stock. Head there and buy usually expensive items like meat and put them in your freezer (if you have one obviously) they will keep for quite a while and you should be able to save yourself a few pennies by doing it.

  10. Hi Leah Sullivan here from Facebook - Profile

    I have so many food money saving tips as with 5 of us in the household, along with the dog I need to be as frugal as possible! My main one is to buy the larger packs/jars etc of things and then once the food is made only eat what you need to then freeze the leftovers! I can often have another couple of meals left over for the children with things like pasta, which is always good for those rare evenings when my husband and I want to treat ourselves to a cheeky takeaway :) xxx

    Ooh and I am claiming 4 extra entires please for all of the above... have shared on my fb wall etc. My daughter is 5 months old and I literally bought her the baby rice to try weaning her this weekend, so this pack would be a real treat for her. I love Hipp organic!

  11. My money saving tip is to shop at cheaper supermarkets and food stores to get the best deals - such as Asda and Aldi etc as many of their items are often half the price of other supermarkets. Also dont ever go food shopping when you are hungry as you will end up buying lots more than you would usually!! lol.

    Claiming 4 extra entries as have done all the above. Would love to win! email: xx

  12. meant to say shared this on my FB wall x

  13. money saving tip is '' grow your own'', make a little veg patch in your garden.

    3 extra entries liked both pages and followed your blog , so 4 entries in total

  18. Join the baby groups - there are so many! Different stores, baby food companies, facebook pages and so on have groups / blogs / forums not only to give you endless money saving tips and advice, but also to get great vouchers sent to you and also free samples of products and also run great competitions! This has been the best thing for me in saving money and also trying out new products, often very cheap if not free! facebook name and liker emma speers.

  19. Hiya Becki Clarke here from facebook. 2 extra entries i like hipp fb page and mymummyspennies FB page.
    I always look for ways to save money and i find making a big batch and feezing lasts longer aswell as making slight adjustments to our own food so baby can eat and its always good to grow your own fruit and veg its not that hard when you know how and goes so far :) Another great tip is buy the offer jars and pouches in bulk works out cheaper and they last long when not opened. Good luck all mummy's great comp :)

  20. My food related money saving tip is look on to pick up the best buys!!


  21. Already liked Hipp Organic


  22. I already like mymummyspennies on facebook

  23. I am already following you

  24. my best money saving tip is free food there are so many fruit trees on common land that noone uses every autum i get apples, blackberries, damsonsand plums i can make jam, pie, crumble for a few pence just freeze and they last months, i also ask local farmers for the veg the suppermarkets dont want alot just ask a few pence for what costs pounds in a shop some will give you it, ok its not pretty but it tastes good.
    ive liked hipp your facebook and your blog

  25. I have shared on my facebook page

  26. My best food/money saving tip is to buy meat from the butcher rather than the superstores. A large joint of meat can be used for so many different meals, broken down into portions, sliced for sandwiches, minced for pies etc. Its great knowing the meat your kids eat isnt pumped full of water and preservatives plus it works out cheaper in the long run.
    I've commented and liked the listed pages. You can contact me on FB Laura Silver or email

  27. money off vouchers i have a purse full!
