Save Away For A Rainy Day

A little rhyme I came up with!

 

Be wise with your money you’ll have the last laugh

Insurance, mortgages, ISA’s and tax

Shop savvy and smart, seek out the best deals

Take a packed lunch to work instead of splurging on meals

Regular savings will grow like a weed

Try to stop shopping for things you don’t need

It’s true this is all very easy to say, but try to improve just a little each day!!

    A few tips of mine are – don’t go shopping when you are hungry or with the kids (always costs more!), shop around when buying online and use cashback sites (any money I get from this I save for days out etc.), swap clubcard points for vouchers too you can get some really good deals! And a little one for at home is I have a money tin which I can only open with a tin opener. @SlLouise on twitter x

    We have a great decision making tool for the kids – but it helps us a lot.
    When we want to have take out, or go to the cinema – we have a a scale and weights and we have on one side the ‘weight’ of a holiday for all of us away, on the other we place the number of ‘weights’ of cinema trips, takeouts etc that we would have to decline in order to buy our holiday.

    The kids will invariably go for a cheaper take out in order to get to their holiday quicker!

    I buy things with yellow labels on in supermarkets, and I fill my freezer, I also check out supermarket magazines for money off coupons, also I bank online and every couple of days I do a think called β€˜skimming’ basically you round your money down to the nearest Β£5 and put the excess into a savings account, it might only be like Β£1.48 or 50p, but it adds up and you don’t miss it, I’ve saved Β£30 a month some months by doing this.

    Fill your time with things you like doing that are free like walking and taking in the scenery or something you love. it stops having too much spare time & surfing the internet & then spending money on things & impulse buys.
    I find food shopping online helps, as I can see how much I’m spending rather than just throwing things in the trolley, some online supermarkets have free delivery slots if you book them slightly outside the popular hours, like 9-10pm In the evening

    I always re-negotiate my AA breakdown cover, Sky subscription, Car Insurance, Home Insurance etc. rather than paying the new quote. I used to feel that this was an embarrassing thing to do but now I feel ok about it. If the company I’m with won’t reduce the price, I look round for somewhere else. Mostly they take some money off the quote so I’m quids in! πŸ™‚
