How can we give if we don't have savings or spare cash? Recently I've felt challenged about creating money by saving or changing how we spend. There are quite a few ways to save money on everyday items. Here are a few of my money saving tips:
1. My number one tip is a website called www.moneysavingexpert.com. It's the biggest UK consumer help website on how to save cash. By tapping in a few details, you can see how much money you can save by switching to a different telephone/mobile, gas/electric or broadband supplier. It also has 2-for-1 vouchers, the latest offers in high street shops, comparison sites, and info can be emailed to you on a weekly basis.
2. BOGOF (Buy One, Get One Free) Do these save money? Not really, but if you can go shopping with a friend, buy the BOGOF offers and split the cost, you can then save that extra cash.
3. Takeaways Changes to how we spend don't have to be forever. If you enjoy a takeaway on a Friday night, how about skipping the takeaways for just two months and physically putting the money in a jar, watching it build up over the weeks? Perhaps try using something up out of the freezer. The same applies to going out for a coffee or buying lunch for work – all of that money can be put aside, and it will all add up after a few months.
