I have decided to start a new post ritual, Thrifty Thursdays. Every Thursday I will post a picture or a link of something your can get for free or something that I’ve come across at a bargain price. I hope you’ll all join in, to participate, simply post something thrifty on your blog, then link to this post, and come here and add your Thrifty Thursday post link to the comments section at the bottom.
Council Nappy Schemes
Many local councils run schemes to encourage people to use cloth nappies. You might get a reduction in the cost of a laundry service, a pack of trial nappies or money back once you’ve purchased nappies or even a voucher to purchase some cloth nappies.
It’s worth ringing up your local council and asking them if they run any nappy incentive schemes.
Cheshire West and Cheshire
Month FREE nappy laundry service (worth £45) or A maximum of £25 cashback on reusable nappy purchases
For more information please visit their website.
Lancashire & Blackpool Bottom Line Project
If you live within Lancashire or Blackpool and have a child under 18 months old or are expecting a baby you could be entitled to claim a voucher which can be redeemed for nappies and accessories or put towards a nappy laundry service. From Monday 12th October 2009 the administration of the Bottom Line Incentive Scheme in Lancashire is being transferred to Global Renewables. For more information please visit their website.
London:- Real Nappies for London
This is a new London-wide scheme to provide parents with an opportunity to try real nappies.
If the London borough in which you live has joined Real Nappies for London and you have a child under the age of 18 months, you could be entitled to claim an information pack and voucher. The voucher can be redeemed for nappies (and accessories) or a nappy laundry service (for a limited period) within six months of you receiving it.
Liverpool City Council Nappy Incentive
Liverpool city council is trying to encourage mums and dads to use re-usable nappies instead of disposable nappies. They are offering two types of incentives to encourage parents to use re-usable nappies. For more information please visit their website.
