Tips for mastering family finances

Since becoming a mum of two, buying a house, getting a joint account with my husband and also being self-employed, I've really had to learn how to master our family finances!

On my blog I regularly share family finance tips.
Here's a good selection handpicked from my money blog. New posts added regularly to the end.
