With the petrol price on the increase and food costs at an all-time high, a loyalty card can be a great tool to help parents with their monthly spending, but you need to know how best to use it.
“A loyalty programme like Clicks BabyClub can help ease the financial pressure, especially when stocking up on toiletries and baby essentials,” says Clicks ClubCard Executive Heloise Janse van Rensburg. She says that it’s important to shop around and make sure you are getting the best deal in terms of loyalty programme benefits.
Last month I attended the Clicks Babyclub event and I learnt just how Clicks Babyclub can assist new Moms to save a few pennies!
I love living in the Western Cape for so many reasons, but one of the best parts of living here is that if you want to “escape” the city and suburbs, you don’t have to travel very far to relax and wind in a lot less chaotic surroundings. However, finding family friendly accommodation in the Western Cape is now the order of the day for us, so we’re always on the lookout for places that will have enough to keep the kids entertained but at the same time give Kurt and I a relaxing break.
If you’re a parent, I’m sure you will share this sentiment! So, what I thought I’d do is put together a list of family friendly accommodation in the Western Cape that we’ve visited and loved. I will also keep adding to this list if we do come across any other gems!

Kids believe in Santa’s scout elves just as fiercely as they believe in Santa, and they derive the great joy from thinking about, writing to and interacting with them. Don’t you think?
The North Pole helpers at The Elf on the Shelf® receive thousands of letters each year from children worried that their scout elves have lost their magic or wonder why adults aren’t abiding by the North Pole rules.
While all children know The Elf on the Shelf’s rules, it’s important for grown-ups to get to know them, too!
How can we as parents keep this magic alive?
Starting with just one music and movement class in Fish Hoek in 2008, the Wriggle and Rhyme programme has grown to seven branches across Cape Town, a dynamic pre-schools programme, 4 musical story CDs and many opportunities to share their resources with less fortunate children.
If you’ve been following my blog or on social media for a while, you’d know how much my kids love music and dance – this is exactly why they are such big fans of Wriggle and Rhyme.
