my list on saving and cutting back

Dont laugh its a bit anal,

1 – pre payment prescription cert……saves me about £15 per month

2- take showers not baths

3- Use the slow cooker, electricity costs are low to use this

4- shop to aldi, discount shops and pound shops, iceland and others

5-Hubby and Ben take packed lunches

6- in a morning a fill the kettle to boil and have a flask to keep the leftovers for the rest of the day, boiling kettle time afte time costs.

7-try never to throw food away

8-make bread

9-yes i squeeze my loo rolls

11- make my own cleaning stuff, never spend over £3 per month

12- cash 4 clothes for old clothes

13- ive ran out of body cream so im using the hundreds of bottles of sun cream

14- home made facials

15-keep the freezer full, costs less

16- wash clothes at 30c unless towels and bedding

17-i Never buy full priced clothes, all my clothes come from the charirty shops…..I am proud of this

18-make home made gifts

19- value toiletries

20- turn off all plugs apart form fridge/freezer

21- bulk out meals with lentils

22- make meals go further, a chicken can do three meals, gammon can do two

23- use a natinal shopping monitor

24- used approved food

25- Batch cook and freeze, freeze leftovers

26 – Meal plan….. a must

27- Cheap washing powder….just as good



use draft excluder

wear extra clothes before putting heating in

I only use tumbler dryer for towels and bedding

use candles, tea lights give off heat

close curtains early

Have you got anymore to add?
