21 easy money-saving tips

Posted on: December 3rd, 2012

In today’s straitened times, with clients cutting their budgets, utility companies increasing their bills, higher food prices and a general squeeze on our wallets, here are a few money-saving tips to help your well-earned money stretch that little bit further.

Most of these are common sense but, hopefully, will serve as a reminder to you:

  • Get in the habit of buying your fruit and vegetables from markets as they are much better value than supermarkets.
  • To avoid impulse purchases, write a shopping list and stick to it.
  • Go for supermarket own-label items as they are cheaper than branded goods (and don’t usually taste any different).
  • If you have flatmates, introduce a kitty for buying the essentials so you don’t have several jars of Marmite or five boxes of Weetabix in the cupboard.
