Can I reduce my
household bills?

You may have noticed by now just how much it can cost for all that is associated with home educating your child.
 
Maybe, like myself, you have had to give up work, maybe you need to rely on your partner, or you the main source of income comes from you.

Whatever your situation, find out below some great ways to save money while home educating.

1.

Check out the Dave Ramsey Snowball method.

3.

Cut out the takeaways

5.

Shop at bargain stores

7.

Make a packed lunch for when you leave home

9.

10.

11.

13.

15.

No more loans or credit cards

You will have to arrange your own work experience but you can also look out for volunteer experience for your child. I found it hard to find official work experience opportunities for my eldest son and this is because I didn’t have insurance so companies were not willing to take him on until he was 16. What I realised though that he was unaffected by not having work experience and in the end he managed to secure a part time job in Primark when he reached 16. He all had a lot of experiences that when put together can be packages as work experience.

You could try the Duke of Edingburgh Awards when your child reaches 14 but I believe they will be involved with another organisation.

be successful?

Yes but this all depends on what successful looks like to you. You all need to put the work in to make it possible.
