Miss Thrifty’s Top Tips For Saving On Family Favourites

Following the success of Pampers’ Wonder Week of deals last year, they’re doing it all again, and have brought it back with lots more amazing savings to be had! Between 31st March and 6th April, Pampers are working with selected retailers across the UK to give you a week of amazing deals, helping your little one sleep soundly.

Simply visit the Wonder Week website at, choose your preferred retailer from the list available, pick your product deal and click through to their site to purchase. Very often you can get significant savings on buying the best quality products like Pampers in bulk during events like Wonder Week. Plus, you can enjoy the convenience of having all your favourite nappies and wipes delivered to your door – freeing up as much time as possible for you and baby.
Pampers have also partnered with bargain-loving blogger Miss Thrifty (aka Karyn Fleeting), who’s super passionate about a simple way to save pounds on every-day and family essentials. Karyn’s got some serious financial credentials, and her blog been heralded by the Times as one of their Top 50 Websites to Save You Money, we caught up with her to get her top tips on bulk buying successfully, so you can spend and save where it matters, find discounts and make savings!

Miss Thrifty’s top tips:
1. Always compare costs and check the price per unit.

In the UK, a product’s price label on the supermarket shelf will also specify the price per unit: if you are considering a bulk purchase of a product, then check this price-per-unit, compare it and make a judgement call as to whether you will be saving money in the long-term.

2. “Stack” coupons and offers for additional savings.

To “stack” is to put multiple coupons towards the purchase of a single item. You can collect coupons from magazines and websites. If the supermarket with the best bulk-buy offers isn’t your closest, remember that you can obtain the savings anyway, if you take advantage of price match schemes.

3. If you are buying baby products, think long-term.

Think ahead if you are bulk-buying baby items such as clothes and nappies – my little one has already outgrown his 0-3 month outfits, Babies grow so quickly, so it’s sensible to buy a size up, or mix and match your bulk buy products. Disposable baby wipes are something you’ll be buying for years, so your bulk buy will definitely get used!

4. Be wary of bulk-buying a product or brand you haven’t bought previously.

Fortunately, many of the baby brands are available to try at no cost or low cost: Pampers, for example, will send you free samples (

5. Remember to adjust your household budget.

For those new to bulk-buying, here is a neat idea from an American money-saving blog, which is applicable to UK shoppers: raise your grocery budget, temporarily, by 25% – “take advantage of big sales when you see them…eventually, you won’t need that extra 25%” (The Simple Dollar)

Whether it’s teething, wind, or just excitement that’s disrupting those 12 golden hours of sleep, every parent has their own tried and tested tricks to help encourage a restful slumber, but something that might get overlooked is a reliable, comfortable and absorbent nappy. Pampers Wonder Week will see amazing offers on the full Pampers range including New Baby, Premium Protection, Baby-Dry nappies Baby-Dry Pants and Pampers Sensitive Wipes; so your little one will have all they need to sleep through the night and wake up for a day of boundless play, every day!
