The ethos behind MoneyMagpie is that we live in a land of plenty, that there is enough for all and that whatever income you are on, there are always ways to have a rich life…often without money.

Unlike other money experts, the people behind MoneyMagpie believe that riches are not just about piles of cash, they are about a quality of life, freedom and simplicity. This is why MoneyMagpie spearheaded the national Clear Your Clutter campaign in 2016 and will continue to run it each year. Clear Your Clutter Day encourages people in Britain to think about what is important in their lives, to think big and have what is genuinely valuable in life while discarding what is tacky, temporary and wasteful, and to make a profit.

What about the adverts?

Yes, we have banner advertising to help cover the costs. But we choose our adverts carefully – we only include products which we think are genuinely good. We also look into everything we advertise to make sure it’s legitimate – so you won’t find any scams on our site.

Having banner adverts helps us to generate some of the revenue we need to cover the costs of the website without having to compromise our promise to research and reveal to you the best deals, bargains and money-making ideas.
