10 Fast Money Savers

Published on 1 January 1970 by Raffick Marday

Follow these top tips on how to save money every day now.

  1. Take a sandwich to work. Even if you only spend £5 a day (and if you add up all the extra snacks and coffees honestly it’s more likely to be double that), that’s £100 a month and a massive £1,200 a year. In six years, that could buy you a new car!
  2. Cycle to work. Or get off the bus or train one stop early and walk. Not only will you save cash, but you’ll also get loads of exercise, completely free.
  3. Drink at Home: One night a week, swap your glass of wine at the pub for a couple at home with friends.
  4. Don’t buy lottery tickets. Just face it – it won’t be you! Instead, put the money you would have spent into paying off a debt, or a piggy bank, and save for a rainy day.
  5. Ditch the Credit Card in Favour of a Prepaid Credit Card: It will help you budget more effectively as you can only spend the money you have.
  6. Sell your unwanted items on eBay. Everyone has a stash of clothes they never wear and products they have never used, and you could make a killing selling yours. Just make sure you don’t get sidetracked buying yet more unwanted items.
  7. Book in Advance to Save: It’s not just holidays that are cheaper if you book them in advance. You can get great cut-price deals on theatre tickets and theme parks if you hunt around on websites on travel booking websites.
  8. Stop smoking. Besides feeling and looking better, if you usually smoke 20 a day you’ll also save a whopping £2,000 a year.
  9. Magazine Subscriptions: If, and only if, you read a magazine every month without fail, subscribing will save you a lot of cash off the cover price. Look around for the best deal – they are usually offered inside the magazine rather than from another source.
  10. Slow Down when Buying: Don’t buy clothes in the hope they’ll fit you soon. Unless you are doing some marathon training, the chances are, they wont. You’ll end up with a pile of expensive clothes that are completely useless.
