“This site is a place for like minded people to come together to share money saving tips and ideas. It’s been a life saver for me and many others, enabling me to go from buying two weeks of shopping a month on a credit card to having money left in my account at the end of the month 😊”

I joined this page as I was struggling when I first moved out of my parent’s house, wanted to find some good ways of cutting back on food spending and other things too! I have learnt so much from this page, and it has definitely helped me a lot with my spending and saving! Everyone is so friendly and gives great advice!

“All of us have times when our months run for longer than our money – Skintdad and the related Facebook groups are a lifesaver for those moments and help us to figure out ways to budget for these times. The group is a ‘virtual family’ who take care of each other and support each other – sometimes, just some support and encouragement are all that is needed. I really appreciate all that Ricky and Naomi do for us”

Feedback from the communities
Don’t take our word how great the communities are!
The members love being part of a big money saving family.
“This community is great, it gives us a chance to pass on tips and experience while learning all the while. It also makes you realise we are all in the same boat, just some of the boats are harder to row!”
Elaine, community member
“The Skint Dad “brand” is so different to anything else out there because it focuses on issues we’re all going through it together. Every member is really engaged in helping people with issues ranging from reducing debt to where to buy cheap carrots. It’s so much more like a community than anything else I’ve found on Facebook.”
Paul, community member
“After a month of being in these groups, I’m already better off financially. Bargain hunting is my new favourite thing and I’ve been inspired to cook new things. I’ve never been able to save a penny in my life and I’m now getting somewhere.
Not only that, but the communities Ricky and Naomi have created are incredible. It’s my paradise of social media. Everyone is so lovely and helpful. I honestly will forever be in your debt for the help I’ve had from this group. Thank you ALL so much.”
Kay, community member

But this group makes you realize there are thousands of us in the same boat and the community spirit and encouragement is amazing and very often lifts you from a dark place to a place with a chink of light x”

“I joined Reduce Your Supermarket Spend during a time of difficulty in our household. The support we have received and tips we have been offered have been invaluable. Beyond everything else, we have cut our food spend and food waste down to a minimum. My pantry and freezer have never been better stocked and I’ve never been more confident about my cooking. I love sharing tips with others and knowing that no one is judging is so uplifting.”
Susan, community member
“Learned so much. Saved on our food bill, learned how to managed and pay off debts and some really good bargains on Amazon! Even got savings to start a fund to buy my own house. Big thanks to Ricky Willis and Naomi Willis x”
Vicki, community member
“Before I joined this site, a big black cloud hovered over our lives. Then Ricky and Naomi came along with a fantastic page full of hints and tips on how to get your life back to some sort of normality. Now that cloud has lifted and we can see light at the end of the tunnel. So grateful. Thank you 😀”
Holly, community member
“This group has helped me immensely. It has helped me and my family take back an element of control. After a sudden unexpected reduction in finance, I feel that my food spend is now something that can be changed provided I am careful. I recently had £54.00 and two weeks to go until payday with two adults and two children. The tips I received here made that doable for me. I would’ve thought that impossible before joining. Thank you”
Laura, community member
“Thanks to this site and all of the lovely members I no longer feel so isolated and the tips, advise and help all of those lovely people share is amazing. I’m now able to start paying more of my minimum payments and sitting here sometimes just reading other people’s struggles has made me realise I’m in a better position than a lot of others. Fantastic community, I usually read others and enjoy their moments when they’ve bagged a bargain or stood their ground with a company. Thank you all for restoring the old fashioned way of helping others. 😺”
Natasha, community member
“I joined this group by accident late one night, so I thought I have a wee look. So glad I did. I have started skimming bank account, I have tried free products that I could not afford to try, I have even started baking which I have never done. You need advice just ask there is always someone willing to help….it’s like a wee savers family x”
Elaine, community member
“This group is like an online family to me. All the hints tips advice I have been given has saved me so much time and money! Being disabled I struggled daily now with the easy recipes and advice and tips my life is that little bit easier and I’m able to save now too for some spoiling myself sessions. Thank God for Skint Dad !!!”
Berni, community member
“I have never been great with money but since joining this group I’ve got better. I even have a slight emergency fund with enough to actually go visit my friends at the other end of the country who have been waiting years for me to come. This group changes the way you think both about money and actions. I thank everyone especially Naomi and Ricky for this site, everyone is so helpful with hints and tips or just a kind word if you need it. I’ve learned so much here, thank you! X”
