Steph McGovern and Alex Jones reveal the pitfalls that part us from our cash in a bid to help families save money.
Alex and Steph head to Glasgow to meet the Rodger family. Event organiser, Colin and dance lecturer Karen are parents to three sets of twins. This supersized family are desperate for their first holiday abroad, but they need to get their spending in check if this dream is to become a reality. Karen's addiction to shoes is rubbing off on the kids, and when it comes to technology, Colin always opts for the brand leader. While the family are out, Alex and Steph take a sneaky peek inside the house and make a pop-up shop with all the things the family already own to get them to face up to their spending. The family want to change, and we've put them to the ultimate test. All their usual branded products have had their labels removed and have been replaced with substitutes to open their eyes to alternatives. But will the family like Alex and Steph's changes?
Alex and Steph head to north London to meet Kevin and Yolanda. This shopping-obsessed couple are desperate to save some money for their upcoming wedding. Having recently lost 16 stone between them, new-found confidence has led to a shopping obsession, each of them buying new clothes to flatter their new frames. To reveal just how much stuff there is, Alex and Steph have gone into the house and taken their possessions to stock a pop-up shop. Yolanda and Kevin can't believe it when they walk in and find everything out on display. When they are confronted with how much they have spent, they are left shocked. Alex and Steph swap Kevin and Yolanda's products for unbranded substitutes to show where they can spend less, but not all the products have been changed. Will they be able to spot the difference? And will they make the changes needed to save for their wedding?
