Looking to save some money here and there, around the home? Look no further. Here are super simple tips on finding ways to save money around your house.
Planning your weekly grocery shop in advance is one of the easiest ways you can save substantial money on a week to week basis. By sitting down and planning out the meal schedule for the week ahead you can make sure that you are planning your weekly shopping budget effectively, without the need for impulse buys and spending money on items that go to waste.
Having a weekly shopping plan will also mean that you can avoid any last minute takeaway orders, or any expensive evenings spent at restaurants because the fridge is empty.
It’s an oldie, but a goodie. By putting all your change into a large jar on a daily basis can have you saving up to £500-£700 a year. So by the time you get to the end of the year, hey presto, you can take your coins to the bank and have your christmas budget handed right back to you.
Sometimes the big expenses can come at times when we least expect them, and unfortunately usually, when we could most do without them. Therefore we need to be vigilant with the more expensive items in our homes to make sure we are covered should anything go wrong.
The larger items in our homes such as dishwashers, fridges, freezers and washing machines, can really set us back if we have any problems with them. Therefore we need to make sure that the warranty on these items is fully up to date to ensure that we are covered should anything go wrong with these items. If you are unsure about the warranties on your larger home items, check out the WarrantyGuides to see if you are currently covered for repair and replacement, and if you’re not, the best packages available to make sure you are.
Why not try to find things to do in your local community this summer, rather than dishing out for expensive summer holidays. Summer holidays, with little ones can sometimes be a little exhausting for parents, so why not save yourself the dosh and find some interesting and fun activities that you and your children can get involved in, in your local community and enjoy a home based summer holiday.
