Online Shopping with Pouch

With the Christmas shopping in full swing, I am on the look out for vouchers and discounts that would help keep the cost of my Christmas shopping as low as possible. I still have quite a few items to get, but I on it and hoping to round-up all my shopping by the first week in December, so wish me luck.

I am doing ALL of my shopping online because I love shopping online and I find it so easy. Shopping online from the comfort of my home, anytime of the day is pure bliss for me. I don’t have to deal with the crowd and general rush going on at the moment.

So you can imagine how excited I was to come across a new shopping browser extension called Pouch.

Pouch is a browser extension that gives users access to the best available voucher code discounts straight to their shopping baskets. You don’t even have to actively search for voucher codes. Once you download the free browser extensions, it appears on your browser tab, and searches for voucher code discounts on retail sites you visit. Pouch ensures users never have to actively search for a voucher code again. Isn’t that the best online shopping tool ever? I think it is.

I downloaded this browser extension some days ago and I found it very user-friendly. It was very easy to download, no registration required. I just went on the website, and clicked on the “Download on Desktop for Free” tab. The download was completed in under 1 minute, and it has worked amazingly well ever since. It sits on the right hand of my browser. Once I click on the icon to check for available voucher codes on a website, all I need to do is simply paste the voucher code I want into the promo code box on the retail website I am shopping on to get the discount.


There are huge discounts available on thousands of UK websites like Marriott, The Body Shop, Adidas, Waitrose, Sainsbury’s and many other stores. And these discounts here and there all add up in the end, and help save some money. I got 2 voucher codes on the Sainsbury’s website thanks to Pouch, some days ago.

As an online shopping lover and a very busy woman, I love the fact that Pouch would save me time and money without the hassle.  Once you download the very smart browser extension, it recognises the exact website you are on. When you click on the icon on the browser, it then presents the best available voucher codes for that website. It pretty much does all the work, you don’t even have to think it through.

I think Pouch is a great idea. The technology behind it still amazes me. I like the fact that I don’t have to go from 1 website to another in search of discount codes. And it is also completely free, and always will be.

How is your Christmas shopping going? Have you heard of the Pouch? What are your thoughts?

Our Worries For The Future

Most adults are worriers. It is usually the first sign of being a grown up. We worry about bills, our careers, our health, our wealth, and most important of all, our children. As a mother to two 22 month old toddlers, I worry a lot about them; their health, growth and developement, and I monitor and record all major milestones. I also worry about their future, the schools they would attend, grades they would have, friends they would make, the courses they would study at the university and everything else imaginable. My job as a Mom, is to worry.

Worry About Our Children

An interesting survey was recently carried out by My Voucher Codes, the survey asked parents from all over the UK what their main concerns were for themselves and their children’s future. 1,286 families took part in the study, and here are the findings:

They found 44% were concerned about financial instability and economy, 40% were concerned about extremism, terrorism and safety and 37% of families, were concerned about house prices and rental costs. In addition 24% were worried about crime, 14% had concerns over bullying and 11% were worried about drugs.

I found it shocking to know that in the North East (where I live), 68% of parents were more concerned about extremism, terrorism and safety than anything else. I know there is always one new terror related story in the news these days, but overall I find the North East extremely quiet and peaceful which is fantastic for my growing family. Unlike London and Manchester, here in Cheshire, we hardly hear about crimes or break ins, everyone goes about their business peacefully, so to think safety is a main issue for most people was quite puzzling. I would have thought most parents would be more worried about the rising costs of house prices and house rents, the economy, the financial instability with the growth in the unemployment rate and small businesses shutting down; and also bullying at schools. Those are the things I worry about, they keep me up at night.

Mark Pearson, the  founder of My Voucher Codes, commented on the results of the research: ‘From what we have found from speaking to parents, it seems that many of them are worried about the effects of the economy, whether that is financial instability or house prices and high rents for their children’s future. The recent budget announcements seem to have many parents concerned about what the future holds, especially for their children.’
