In today’s trying times we are all having to watch how much we spend.
Here are a few tips I have started to put into practice with the help of my partner.
Every week make a list of what you are going to have for meals, from that list you will know exactly what you will need for your shopping. Only buy in what you need, no getting those little extra things.
If you have leftovers from a meal don’t throw them away you can have it for your lunch the next day or put it into the freezer, it can be kept there for up to three months.
Try buying the shops own brand labels their own tinned food is exactly the same as the brands, their own labels are just as tasty. Look in different shops for lower prices.
Plan your trips to save on fuel, you might find that going by public transport is cheaper than using your car.
Look on the internet for prices.
Get your little ones involved with saving money by explaining to them the benefits of turning things off when they are not using them, that includes water, electricity & gas.
Put your small change into a jar it all adds up in the end (for an outing to the seaside).
