Save Money

Whatever your lifestyle, everyone could do with a few more pennies in their pocket. So we’ve found our top tips to save you money (and it won’t cost the earth either)…


SwishingBorrow
It really is very simple – borrowing instead of buying will save you oodles of cash and is easy to do. Throw your own Swishing party to get some new clothes. Sign up to your local library and borrow books instead of buying them too.


Kelly Brook CyclingOn yer bike
Walk or cycle around rather than driving. It’s greener, healthier and will save you lots of money too. We’ve got a great video showing you the perks of cycling rather than driving. Check it out here.


Watching TVTV Turn Off
We’re sure you’ve heard this one many times before, but leaving your TV on standby rather than turning it off completely can waste a lot money. And this goes for unused plugs too, so make sure the power supply is off when you’re not using them.


Water

Don’t waste water
Don’t throw your money down the drain! Try taking shorter showers to reduce your heating and water bills. Also fix any water leaks and don’t let the tap run when you brush your teeth. They may seem like small changes, but over a year they can make a massive difference to your pocket.
