Five ways to save - part one

There are so many ways to save your hard earned money - everyday! This is the first in a series to help you save. Just like the old saying - take care of the pennies and the pounds take care of themselves - with a few little cut backs here and there, soon you'll be able to save for fun things like luxury mini-breaks and shoes!

5. Coupons: Save your coupon flyer out of your paper and cut out anything that might be of interest. For grad level coupon use, compare a couple with your grocery store flyer to find out ways you can use a coupon to reduce the cost of an item already on sale – the results could be pleasantly surprising!
4. Air seal your home: Air leaks make the job of keeping your house cool in summer and warm in winter much harder – and much more costly.
3. Make your own beer or wine: You can make beer or wine at home and it doesn’t take that long once you have the basic ingredients. Even better, it’s a fun activity to do with friends – you buy the equipment, they bring the juice and you both get a few bottles of homemade wine out of the deal. Worst case scenario - sangrias!
2. Put your electrical devices on a surge protector: A power surge can easily damage electronics so investing in a basic surge protector will keep your equipment safe.
1. DIY: Forget the commercial brand names! Making your own cleaning solutions and laundry detergent is cheaper and greener! Click here for ideas.
