Meghan Markle has shared the savvy ways she saves money when buying presents for her son Archie.

Just in time for Christmas presents rush in the next few weeks, the Duchess of Sussex revealed her tips during this week's episode of her podcast Archetypes.

Titled "Good Wife/Bad Wife, Good Mom/Bad Mom," the 41-year-old provided insight into her life as a mum along with Sophie Trudeau, the First Lady of Canada.

She then revealed that she once found a way to save a few dollars on a toy for three-year-old Archie.

Meghan recalled the time when Sophie visited the Duchess with her children Xavier, 15, Ella-Grace, 13, and Hadrien, eight, for a few days, and the families were playing by the pool.

"We splashed in the water, then threw some pool floats in," the former Suits actress said.

"And I kid you not the one without pepperoni was a few dollars less than the one with pepperoni.

"And yes, I'm still talking about the inflatable pizza float for the pool."

She also detailed her ‘chaotic’ mornings with her husband, Prince Harry, and their two children in their California home.

"For me, it's, you know, both monitors on, for the kids to hear them, always up with Lili, get her downstairs, then a half hour later Archie." she said.

The Duke of Sussex will then help get Archie downstairs before the mum makes breakfast.

"It's very important to me,” she added.

And after breakfast for the humans is done, it’s time to feed their three dogs, which includes a new addition, before getting Archie ready to leave for school.

"You know, but it does, it feels like a whirlwind,” she said.

We’re sure that many parents can relate to the morning rush.

The Duchess sympathetically thought about how single parents manage with getting their children ready for the day without any additional help, saying: "How someone does this without a partner to help them through?

"It is so much work to be a mum."

And Sophie can relate to Meghan's struggles, with the retired television host having been married to the Prince Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, since 2005.

When the Duchess introduced her 'dear friend' to her Spotify podcast, she gushed: “She knows what it feels like to be a mum and a partner.

Further expressing their similarities, the 41-year-old explained: “And specifically a mum and a partner in the public eye, and also how crushing the guilt of expectations can become the guilt that we feel as mothers or as women, in general, is self-imposed."

We love this camaraderie!
