When buying books on a budget, it can be difficult to know how to save money. With costs of living increasing, we’re all looking to save but you can still leave room in your budget for reading. 

If you’re writing out your next monthly budget, it’s a good idea to include your discretionary spending in this. For some people, this can be gym memberships and for others, it might be reading. It can feel difficult to include in budgeting when the cost of living has increased energy bills, rent, and even transportation costs. However, if you are a book lover then you can still fund your reading habits without it costing the Earth.

Health & Beauty Editor

I’ve been the Health and Beauty Editor here at MyVoucherCodes since March 2022. I love writing, and I’ve been doing it since my second year of university back in 2019, and what I love to write about most is beauty, skincare, health, protein, and wellness. On top of my work for MyVoucherCodes, I have a lifestyle blog on social media.

In my spare time, I enjoy heading to the gym, watching Love Island, and spending some time with a good book. I also have a degree BA degree in Creative Writing and English Literature from Bath Spa University.
