World Cup fever has gripped the nation, but we are happy to report that June is not all about football- the wonderfully British Wimbledon championship starts on Monday. Along with Pimm's and champagne, Wimbledon goes hand in hand with strawberries and cream, so to celebrate the start of the tournament we have rounded up our favourite strawberry themed gifts for under £40… with some Savoo savings thrown in for good measure.
In Part I of our budget wedding guide we showed you how to save money on outfits, wedding rings and invitations. Here, we give you the Savoo top tips on cutting back on the wedding reception- including food, drink and entertainment.
As I sit at my desk and look out the window, normal service has resumed. The rain is lashing down and more severe weather warnings have been issued than Premiership footballers take out injunctions. But last night was different; the sun was shining and cricket fans in London flooded (sorry about that pun) into the Oval for the Friends Life T2O game between Surrey and Kent. Luckily for me I was there too, but not part of the masses – no, no – I was there as a guest of Webgains in a corporate box. A mighty fine way to spend an evening, if I do say so myself.
It is with pain and anguish that I use this week's post to inform you of my current ailment. It seems that I have become afflicted with the curse of the 5150, a condition that will take a rather hefty amount of cash to cure.

Like a lot of guys I like lists, I find things like Top Fives amusing. It could be the top five women in the world you would most like to date, the top five movies to watch or even Desert Island Discs, which is similar to a top five. Why we guys do this I do not know. Maybe it's because we have nothing else to talk about, being so one dimensional! Either way, it happens and recently my mates and I have started a new top five - "Things in your life you couldn't do without losing."
Now obviously this doesn't mean parents, siblings, girlfriends etc but,
instead, is more focused on things in the home. My current top five:
Dishwasher (I couldn't wash up)
Washing machine (I couldn't go to the launderette)
Walking through the empty silent streets of England, no more sound can be heard, all shops, cafes, bars are
empty, TVs are off... I wonder what to do now that it's over? The World Cup that is! Click 'Read More' for our voucher recommendations
