I read MSE everyday so I do not want to repeat the forum's tips. I am trying to recall some that are not well known.
My main one is buying men's disposable razors. They are cheaper and more robust - they last me ages - okay so they are not pink.
Another one is I live in town so no travelling to the supermarket. I live near Sainsburys, Aldi and Asda. I also live near M & S, Wilkinsons and all the usual suspects. When I first moved here I spent more than I do now as you get used to it. There are many charity shops.
Living in town and it is quite quiet, means that I can catch the whoopsies or reduced items. I also live near the sea so I can go on walks in the summer near where I live which cost nothing.
I do not want to appear dirty but I only wash my bedding every two weeks in the Winter although if it needs doing before then I do it.
I shower most days and just have one bath per week.
I hang the washing to dry over the radiator even in the summer - live in a flat and no washing line.
I turn off all appliances at night - nothing is on standby in our home.
I often cook and we have the same meal the following night as leftovers.
I do like Heinz baked beans and branded coffee but other than that I have done down a brand some are value or economy.
I am a vegetarian and that saves money and I believe it is more healthy - just my opinion.
Before I go shopping for non-groceries i.e. Loo Roll I look at mysupermarket.com to see who has the better offer.
I only used my car where necessary - I get mileage if I drive my car for work which quite often pays my petrol and more. I only work 6 minutes from home - need to drive my car as I may need it urgently.
Close curtains at dusk to keep the warmth in.
Only put the heating on where necessary.
When heating is on make sure I have enough clothing on and keep the heating to a minimum.
I have had my drier for 14 years and it cost be just over £100. I empty the fluff compartment every time I use it and I believe this has helped it last for so long.
Use vouchers I have earned from surveys throughout the year to pay for the bulk of my Christmas presents.
I always shop around when spending a large amount of money - my laptop was the last one in Tesco and they reduced it by over £100. We saw the TV we wanted in Tesco and then my husband did an online search and ended up getting it - wait for it over £350.00 cheaper - it is a big TV my husband likes his TV.
As I have said previously I am not tight I just want what I want for a more reasonable price. I am ready to save in some areas so I can have what in want in others.
I cannot think of anymore tips that most of you don't know already - I hope you found at least one thing helpful.
Other websites I look at are moneymagpie.com and lovemoney - both of which help me save money.
P.S I am so pleased that I have a follower - never thought anyone would be interested in my blurbs.
