'Thrifty' mums prioritize finances over housework
One in five mothers say their main role in the home is to keep a tab on the finances rather than do the housework.
A survey of 1,000 women found that tackling tight family budgets is the priority at a time when spending has to be limited.
And two in three, who are members of social network forum Mumsnet, regularly use store reward and loyalty points to make the weekly shopping budget stretch further, the Daily Express reported.
Meanwhile, more than half admitted to changing the way they spend to maximise their savings.
