New research from online loan provider Sunny, says that 67% of Britons believe that feeling in control is the key to being happy.  Personally and professionally I think that is so true and once you take back control of a situation, happiness usually follows. 

The Sunny Control Index also found that less than half of the UK population feel in control of their finances, which is really concerning.  Financial worries can be super stressful, and with the school holidays coming up, this is even more prevalent as it can be a massive financial burden balancing work, childcare and trying to afford Easter treats and days out too.

However, there are SO many ways you can enjoy the holidays without breaking the bank so stay in control of your finances this Easter with some of these great offers…….

  1. Kids don’t have to have all of the fun!  Adults can now enjoy a day out for FREE at some of the UK’s favourite attractions.  Kellogg’s annual Merlin promotion is offering up to £50 off the usual ticket price at more than 40 attractions including Legoland, Alton Towers, UK Sea Life Centres and the Blackpool Tower.  All you have to do is purchase at least one full-priced child or adult ticket and then a grown-up can enjoy all the fun completely free.  The giveaway features across Kellogg’s family favourite cereals and snacks, including Crunchy Nut, Coco Pops, Nutri Grain and more.  It is available on packs in all major supermarkets now.  Vouchers are on pack until May 2017 subject to availability and are valid until 30 June 2018.  For a full list of attractions go to www.grownupsgofree.co.uk
  2. Sometimes joining up with other children can ease the burden of childcare in the holidays and remind you that you’re not alone!  Have a look at mush, the new free app which connects local, like-minded mums.  Visit www.letsmush.com for more info
  3. If you want to go swimming, have a look at Splashpath where you can search for a pool near you and see what offers they have.  Some pools will offer swimming for a pound, discounts on classes and cut price family tickets.  You just fill in your name, postcode and email for each deal and they send over the voucher. There is also now an app. 
  4. If the weather is bad then take advantage of CHEAP cinema tickets from Vue, Odeon and Cineworld. You can even get tickets for just £1 at weekends and in the holidays. The films may not be new releases but there are usually some great Disney classics or films that your kids want to see again (and you just know they’ll watch Frozen again!)
  5. National Rail has just announced an ‘egg-citing’ (yes I know!) Easter sale offering £5 off its 16-25 and Family & Friends one-year Railcards.  The sale, which will run until Monday 24 April, means the Railcards will cost just £25 with the code EASTER5 and offer a year’s unlimited usage.  These Railcards can usually save users an average of £142.80 a year, more than four times its cost at standard price, but this discount makes that up to six times as much!  To purchase a Family & Friends Railcard visit: familyandfriends-railcard.co.uk/sale or for a 16-25 Railcard visit: 16-25railcard.co.uk/sale before Monday 24 April and use code: EASTER5 to take advantage of the discounted price.
