Like most ordinary working families I’m always on the lookout for new ways in which to make our hard earned cash stretch further!
Here are my top 3 tips and number 3 is a total shocker!!
- Rethink Grocery Shopping Habits: It’s not easy to admit it, but I’m ashamed to say that most of our family income goes on grocery supplies. Now I’ve taken a good long and objective look at my weekly shop I’m happy to say that by making simple swaps for own branded items instead of household name brands and heading for the value ranges I’ve made substantial savings!
- Take Another Look at Home Utility Bills and Tariffs: I undertake this task each year and I always, always make big savings by switching tariff, provider or both! The easiest way to achieve proper comparisons is by having your current utility tariffs to hand and by using a fair comparison website such as uSwitch.
- Stay Away from Coffee Shops!: Nobody loves their daily caffeine hit more than me… but seriously do we really need to spend so much money on takeaway coffees? NO. So my simple solution is to purchase a travel mug and fill it with home-made coffee – this easy to achieve tip really is a no-brainer & you can thank me later! 😉
