If you're reading this, there's a chance you're a customer of Octopus, EDF, British Gas, Scottish Power or OVO who uses oil for heating your home as an alternative fuel source to your electricity. If so, here at Savvy Dad, we're here to fill in some of the sketchy details surrounding whether you may be eligible for the Alternative Fuel Payment (AFP) of £200 from the government via your energy supplier to help with your energy bills. The high cost of oil in the autumn might make this payment long overdue for customers like yourself who have had to bear the extra burden of not having the support when you needed to buy oil or bottled gas at a decent price. But, what exactly is the AFP, and how can…
Here in the Savvy Dad house, I'm always on the lookout for activities and tasks that will keep my two boys entertained and engaged, and let's be real, keep them from overdoing the screen time while video gaming. So, when the wonderful team at Winning Moves sent us a copy of the Women's European Champion Football Monopoly game, I knew I had to give it a try with the Little Savvies. Let me tell you, the game has really 'scored' highly in our household! Not only is it a familiar yet entertaining game to play, but it's also been a sneaky way to pop in some skill-building for the kids. Read on to find out more about what we thought of the Women's European Football Champion Monopoly game and the…
As a dad of two young boys whose eyes widen when they see an amusement arcade, I know all too well the importance of making sure money isn't wasted or surplus income taken for granted. Yes, it's important for families to have memorable moments and experiences, but it's not always about spending money - particularly if you have mortgage payments to make. I believe that financial stability and understanding of your income and outgoings leads to more independence and a better sense of financial well-being. And while it can be easy to get caught up in the daily grind of work and family life, I've found that taking control of my finances and considering tools like Sprive to automate saving for mortgage overpayments have not only helped me begin that…
Savvydad HQ is branching out from dining in our favourite spots for afternoon tea in our Fine City and dipping our toes into the best places for Bottomless Brunch in Norwich! Dry January is over half-way finished and there’s light at the end of the tunnel for those missing eating a magnificent breakfast-cum-lunch and downing sugary cocktails at 11am…let’s go!

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is big news these days, with disagreements about ownership of AI data and copyright, like in the cases of art generated by Midjourney. Meanwhile, there are claims from some reports, that AI is replacing so many human jobs that, by 2025, over 85 million human jobs could have been redistributed to non-living counterparts. Now, there’s no doubt that AI has revolutionised many industries across the globe, including content marketing, and the gig economy. There are tech and money saving apps everywhere to streamline efficiency and make our lives savvier. But with this ability to analyse and interpret large amounts of data with a lightning-fast turnaround time, has AI become a powerful enough tool for generating product engagement, sales copy, and website content? In the field of content…
As someone who likes to always be looking for the next way to make my life more efficient, I'm always keen to find ways of making sure I get the right amount of fluids and nutrients into my body in order to stay healthy and active longer. I've frequently been told by loved ones (and GPs) that I need to drink more water and in order to achieve this I made the step to buy a 500ml water bottle that I now attempt to routinely fill, and consume, 4 times per day. However, what about making sure I get the nutrients I need from my food? It's not always easy to make sure a balanced diet is in place each week due to the nature of work and family life,…
