May turned into a very busy month for me meaning there was very little action in terms of having clear outs to sell items etc. I only really visited supermarkets meaning I did pick up quite a few great cashback deals which saved me lots on my grocery bills which was great.
I kicked off the first week of May with a £10 sale on Facebook Marketplace. I do love it when Marketplace runs smoothly as it is such as easy way to make some extra cash as people pick up from you. I also sold an unwanted clothing item which I was going to donate to charity as I thought it would never shift for £4 on eBay. Whilst not a huge amount, it all adds up and I was heading to the Post Office the next day to post a gift so was very pleased with this added extra. In the last week of May I sold another item I’d lost hope with for another £7.
Cashback Apps For Free Or Very Low Cost Snacks
I used Shopmium, Checkout Smart and Green Jinn offers to claim lots of snacks which were perfect for lunches. I ended up with:
- 3 x Plantastic flapjacks – free
- 6 Fruit & Veg Soreen Loaves – 12p
- Off The Eaten Path pea snacks – free

Holland and Barrett Rewards Scheme For Free Treats
If you’ve seen other monthly round up posts of mine you may already be aware of my mild addiction to HiP Oat Milk chocolate. It is incredible and for the amount that I rave about it you’d think I was sponsored by them but sadly I am not! The bars have been appearing on Green Jinn with £1.50 off if purchased from the Holland and Barrett website. I’ve ordered this offer twice now, stacking discount codes to make each bar end up costing less than 80p each instead of £2.99.
Before placing these 2 orders I joined the Holland and Barrett reward scheme. When I went to place my third order I had a voucher worth £3.75 waiting for me to spend. I added the 4 HiP bars to my basket, stacked a 20% off code and free click and collect code as well as my voucher. All told, after cashback I paid 72p for 4 bars and a large pack of Brave Dark Chocolate roasted chickpeas. They’re all in date until next year which helped me justify this as I don’t have to plough through them all straight away. I’ll also be very hesitant about paying £2.99 per bar once this Green Jinn offer ends so thought it was sensible to stock up as I love them so much.

0 Unnecessary Beauty Buys
In May I didn’t succumb to the allure of the Boots clearance section and managed to only buy direct replacements if items ran out. I even managed to resist the 90% off Christmas gift clearance section as I didn’t need anything that desperately.
