Looking after the pennies

  • Don't buy vending machine coffees at work
  • Make my own sandwiches for work
  • Don't buy ready meals
  • Turn the heating down
  • Walk instead of driving on short journeys
  • Turn the lights off
  • Set a budget and stick to it
  • Shop around for the best buys

  • Insulate you - layer up! 
  • Bulk make staples and freeze

  • Make Christmas boxes for loved ones 
  • Make hampers to keep costs down
  • Don't get conned by offers - check the small print
  • Use discounts and coupons
  • Don't buy in app purchases like lives - do you really need to spend that??
  • Eat smaller portions - less pennies and better for your waistline too!! 
  • Down brand - go down a brand on expensive items
  • Buy single measures when you go out instead of doubles
  • Drink cordial instead of fizzy pop - it works out cheaper
  • Shut windows when the heating is on
  • Shower instead of having a bath - less water, less heating cost

  • Stay home more
  • Don't gamble!!
