UK in Double-Dip Recession

So, it's official. We're in recession. Again. In spite of everything that's been said and done, in spite (or should that be because?) of austerity measures a decline on 0.3% in the final quarter of 2011 means we've hit a double-dip recession, we've super-sized the slide and ordered extra fries on the side.

Oh dear. If, like me, you've got a family to run things aren't going to be easy. But there are strategies you can employ and help to be had. One source of money-saving tips, advice and assistance is My Family Club and they're giving away a free e-book packed with advice for balancing the family budget and making what you spend go further. Written by Debbie O'Connor (@motivatingmumuk) it contains strategies for keeping control of your shopping, strategies for saving money by couponing and a host of self-assessment questionnaires and tools to give you a better understanind of your spending habits. And - like membership of My Family Club itself - it's free!

To receive your copy, I'd like to hear your money-saving tips. Leave a comment with just one - your best - piece of recession-busting wisdom and the book is yours. Only, do make sure you don't sign in anonymously as I'll need to be able to email you the book by return.

Let the tipping begin!
