£100 living room makeover challenge!

When the lovelies from Moneysupermarket got in touch and asked me if they could send me £100 I wasn’t going to refuse was I?

As it turns out, what they had in mind is right up my street! As many of you know I like to stick to a budget. After Kieran was born and I gave up my previous full time work to build a business that meant I could work from home, we  realised very quickly how important having a budget, and sticking to it is!

Moneysupermarket have sent me a £100 prepaid debit card. My challenge is to use the £100 in any way I want but everything I buy has to be under RRP.  I love a challenge and have decided to use my prepaid card to do a mini living room makeover. Hopefully this mini-quest will illustrate how pre-paid cards are a great way or setting and sticking to a budget but also will help me examine the ins and put and report any pros and cons of the card I have to my readers.

This is where you come in… I need to find retailer  ( online ideally as I’m limited locally) that offer sales / items less than RRP which can help me furnish my living room. Do you own a site I should look at for accessories, wall art, soft furnishings etc? Can you recommend one?

I’m hoping to use my reader knowledge to explore new and better known stores to complete this challenge, on budget and have some fun doing it.

Recommend away!

  1. wow! sounds like my kind of challenge. Good luck sweetie.

    Ha! When they contacted me, just wanted me to post a link blurb to their site for free ! You got the better deal xx

  2. It’s possible they saw some pics I’d taken of my living room and realised I needed some serious help 🙂
    Do you have a list of the independents you work with, a good place to start?
