Stacey Solomon shares clever trick to keep costs down when taking kids to cinema

Stacey Solomonis no stranger to sharing her top money saving hacks and tips with fans.

Now the star, 32, took her tips out of the home and into the cinema as she took her brood to see the new Jurassic World film.

Stacey told fans: “I've just packed a bag and I'm taking them to the cinema as they have been begging me to take them to see this Jurassic Park thing. So I'm going to take them.”

She shared a picture of the group’s “cinema snacks” which included bags of supermarket popcorn as well as two plastic pots with marshmallows, jelly sweets and cola bottles.

Stacey explained in her caption: "I've just filled up some of our cups with sweets and bringing some of our cardboard popcorn boxes to fill when we get there.

She then showed images of the brightly-coloured flat packed popcorn holders, before packing bags of shop-bought sweet and salted popcorn on top.

The Tap to Tidy author took a break from renovating herPickle Cottage homefor the trip.

The Loose Women star has been redecorating her home and in doing so shared all she could do to ensure she got the best for her money.

And she recently shared a clever way to create fake panelling using £7 wallpaper.

Showing off her latest project, the former X Factor contestant revealed to her 5.2million followers that she’d purchased some panel effect wallpaper to spruce up one of the property’s smaller rooms.

“Finally got in here and I’m going to attempt to wallpaper this back wall!,” she wrote on her Instagram stories.

“I found this panel wallpaper on @dunelmuk website it was on sale for £7 which I thought was amazing and the perfect colour for in here so hopefully I can actually pull this off I hardly ever wallpaper [laughing face emoji]”.

Doting mum-of-four Stacey then began her latest mission by rolling out the grey wallpaper and cutting it to the correct size.

She then spread paste on the back of the sheet and lightly folded over both ends before allowing the paste to go tacky before carefully lining it up on the wall and cutting off any excess.

In her signature tap-to-tidy style, Stacey, who has written a book about her renovation project, showed off a series of before and after pictures of the room.

While the room initially started off as a blank canvas with white walls and a grey shelving unit, the TV personality transformed the space into an elegant room full of character.

“I love it [emoji] I think I’m going to put some coving at the top because the ceiling is a bit wonky,” she wrote. “But I really like it [emoji] especially for £7!”
