Re: Money Saving Tips Forum

I have recently begun shopping differently. I mostly use local shops and buy only what I need, carefully planned meals help me compile my shopping list. No more cupboards full of things I'm not using; no more processed meals lurking in the freezer. My housekeeping expenditure has reduced dramatically. And the bonus is less waste.

Yes, I agree. Bundle them up and give them to the charity shop.

I'm about to do just that as I've cleared out my wardrobes and I've got dozens of hangers I don't need!

Re: Money Saving Tips Forum

Wander around in your pjs all day like wot I do. Huge savings. Hardly any washing of clothing required - once every 6 weeks or so. I save a fortune.

Another is not to clean your teef everyday but every couple of days. Big saving on toothpaste. Damn stuff is expensive.

Just had another money saving tip on finishing a bowl of sweetcorn and baked beans and that is to lick plates (or bowls), along with cutlery, clean so you save on washing up liquid.
