CHECK OUT THE WHOLE OF YOUR WEEKLY SHOP BEFORE BUYING

Comparisons on your weekly shop only look at how much you could save over the whole of your shop - but this is not necessarily the cheapest way to buy your shop. If you have the time, (and nearby ready access to the main supermarkets) check the price of every item on your list using www.mysupermarket.co.uk
This where meal planning is really quite necessary!
Make a list of items for each supermarket you plan to visit and go armed with any coupons, loyalty cards and cashback or reward credit cards you may have.
This maximises your chances of really saving money on your shop.

NEED A NEW WASHING MACHINE?

 


If you need a new washing machine, I'm sure you already shop around, do your research, buy through a cashback website with a cashback or a reward credit card - but something that has been suggested to me is that we should look at the capacity of our chosen machine.
A 7.5kg washing machine saves us around 92 washes a year compared to a 5kg capacity machine, thus saving electricity, water (and sewage charges), detergent and fabric conditioner!

HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT!

When you make a cake (or bring a bought cake home) slice it up into sensible portions and store in an airtight cake box. This makes sure that you control the portion sizes and not (a greedy) someone else in your household!
