Here are 5 little tips to help you eeeeek out that pay packet this month.
Using a sauce from a jar?
If cooking for two…Half it. Freeze one half of the sauce for another time. You don’t need a WHOLE jar for two people. It’ll stretch nicely for two meals…. silly people making big jars.
Waste water for plants
Remove your potatoes/veg/pasta from their cooking water using a slotted spoon, let the water cool and then water your plants with it. Yummy nitrates and avoiding wasting water, and save money by not using virgin drinking water for your house plants. (I don’t have a garden or a water butt… le sigh…that would be the dream…)
Turn off the lights
Have an evening by candlelight. Watching TV…do you need all the lights on too? Think about it….
Paper for your bum
Save your paper napkins from restaurants and cafes… I keep mine in a little basket by the loo for when toilet paper is running low and payday is a while away. It’s only for wiping your bum folks… come on…
Flick the Switch
Turn off your heating. Yes, if you have kids this is a one that you can’t really do easily if it is properly bitter outdoors.
We switched off our electric storage heaters in early February and despite having the shittest weather ever since then, we piled on jumpers, popped an extra blanket on the bed and embraced our hot water bottles, and we saved over £100 in the last quarter!
Do you already do any of these? What has been your experiences? Lemme know!
