Rebel Badge Book!
So Im guessing you are all thinking what on earth is this?
Well years ago I was a Girl Scout and did Duke of Edinborough etc - love a Badge and or a Sticker - so when I heard about this Merit Badges for Adults and its aim of helping people develop life skills and trying new hobbies I decided to learn more.
So now I am tackling the April Challenge - which is the Chocolate challenge and have to admit that Harrogate is THE place for this due to our amazing chocolate shops - for example - https://harrogatechocolatefactory.org.uk which is both an amazing Cafe and Chocolate factory run as a social enterprize.
Newly opened and an asset to the Harrogate Food Scene is - https://www.thechocworks.com/ which has just opened on Station Parade offerening both savoury and sweet items.
Finally if those 2 amazing businesses just havn't covered all your amazing chocolate needs we have a beautiful branch of Hotel Chocolat nestled on James Street.
So as part of my Rebel Chocolate Badge - I am forcing myself to test wares at these fine establishments! - for more info check out - https://www.rebelbadgestore.com/rebelblog/qdy96ghg1mpfbl3aznsfxmvixradhz

More money Saving tips
(1) be aware that these experience or overnight stay packages you see all over arn't always as good a deal as they seem -ie very restricted date use and not weekends. These companies charge the hotel or venue about 40% commission which is why they only take them off peak - you can ring a hotel or venue direct and buy a gift voucher from them which will give you much better value for the same money.
(2) Sign up for whatever free point schemes are going - they are all on phone apps and if you do buy coffee remember your reusable cup for a discount or for example Nero gives you extra bonus points. Pret does a monthly scheme if you need coffee and wifi - or shop around for a local who might do something similar.
(3) make sure you get all the coupons and discounts you can - Tesco do personalised Vouchers (ie things you actually buy), as do Co-op, Waitrose and nectar points with Sainsburys (don't forget Nectal also links up with Ebay so you can get points even on auctions and second hand items.

Money Saving tips - A
Lets face it we all have a favourite or easy access Supermarket - which is your go to on a regular basis. I am not an advocate of trailing round 3 supermakets to save 5p on beans - its petrol and or time which lets face it most of us don't have.
I do however think its worth taking advantage of this app - https://www.latestdeals.co.uk/supermarket-price-comparison if you are going to do a stock up of a particular item (for us its Toilet paper) which can lead to a considerable saving on bulk shops on non pershiable items.
