Collect loyalty points, water down washing up liquid and hand soap so it lasts longer, use slightly less laundry detergent, don't buy brands, buy second hand clothes or only shop in the sales, mend clothes if you are able to, set yourself an amount to spend on your food shop and don't go over it, meal plan, buy yellow stickers, don't get take aways, if you go out for coffee or buy magazines stop doing this and you will immediately save money.

I don’t buy new spray kitchen or bathroom cleaners. I refill my existing spray bottles with diluted flash or washing up liquid.

Also, top up my liquid soap dispenser with cheap washing up liquids with the colour that matches the bathroom.

primark or street markets or £5 shops

I have afew clothes/shoes that lasted me 5-10years from £5 shop

don't buy brand stuff clothes/food

I get 12packet value toilet rolls at asda for £1.98 and they are fine...

if I can't get them I get 6packet in poundland.

I get value bleach at Tesco, Asda for 80p or less & 1-2strong one for £1

Tissues at Tesco/Asda value box is 75p, soap 4packet 70p-£1,

hand soap 250ml-500ml from 40p-£1 (savers sometimes can have big size on sale for 80p 500ml I brought 6/7 1day & store them.)

sometimes these little stuff make a big difference...

get value food like nuts, dry fruits, biscuits, they all usually taste the same

end of the week check groceries that the shop wants to get rid of at discount...

store afew things like afew cleaning stuff, cupboard food before price goes up.

dry pasta can be around 50p, 400-500g and there is no difference from a packet that is more then £1

Ebay has cheap clothes & try everything5pounds.com

I got a skirt from there

it was great material and strong and that is going to last me at least 3/4years.

OH FORGOT … about handbags at £5 shops, street markets, Primark...

which always normally lasts about 5years.

I always check the material, strength.

The highest price I HAVE PAID FOR HANDBAG IS £6,i BROUGHT ONE FOR £7 only once but usually I pay £5

You don't need 5-7hands bags

I only buy 1 for daily use then a big one for alittle shopping.

Same for shoes 1daily shoe(£10-£12),

1trainners(£7.99-£12.99),

1 winter long boots(£12-£20),

1 slipper,(£3-£5)

I keep to this budget, I don't need 3shoes,3trainners,3slippers and so on... it's not necessary

keep to a budget, and certain amount, & same for hair accessories.

Everything mentioned so far is something that saves me money after I did others things that made a bigger difference first. Check how much you are spending on food and the other sundries to run a household. By meal planning, moving to other products and seeking out offers you could possibly save quite a bit. The second option is to look in to your energy, communications and insurance costs and move to cheaper providers. Once you have done these then collecting vouchers, points etc is worth your time.

I currently use soap nuts instead of washing powder. It's better for excema of be skin plus is eco and very cheap. A bag will last for ages

Charity shops are always good for clothing. But definitely for curtains and bedding and books.

When doing the food shop make a list and stick to it. I find it better to go shopping without my partner or oldest son as they both like to put things in the trolley when I'm not paying attention and then partner puts it all on the checkout and I don't notice until I check the receipt cz I think it's more than it should have been or when I'm putting the shopping away and find it hidden in the bags haha 😂

Always check out sites such as latest deals (obvs), hot UK deals, and sign up to money Saving expert email.

Try reusable items, save money and good for the environment. For example, e for laundry 240 washes costs around £12 on amazon. Bamboo kitchen towels roll is £6.99 on amazon you just wash them after use. Many others but shan’t bombard you. Could also make own cleaning products.

Sign up to quidco and top cashback. Also use receipt hog, shopmium, clicksnap... lots of apps with good offers and freebies.

Get supermarket magazines for coupons. Make sure you have loyalty cards. Try brands down when shopping most of time you can’t tell difference in taste. Have more vegan meals, meat is expensive so can save a lot there... some gorgeous recipes about too.

Sell any unwanted stuff around the house on eBay, Facebook or Shpock.

Write down what you’re spending, it highlights stuff you didn’t realise you were spending.
