It’s never too late to get on the dry January bandwagon. Even if you were sensible over the holidays, we can all agree that booze can be expensive. Why not take the plunge and cut out alcohol for the rest of the month? You’re bound to save a few quid!
New year, new you! Take some time to go through your subscriptions and ask yourself whether you still really need them. Cutting back on just one monthly outgoing can make all the difference, and you may find that you don’t really miss it.
Compare & Switch
You could be overspending on your utility bills without even knowing. Get savvy by popping onto a comparison site and comparing your gas, electric and internet. Chances are you’ll be able to find a cheaper deal and may even have an opportunity for cashback or freebies when you switch supplier.
While we’re on the subject of gas & electric bills, now is as good a time as any to become more conscious of then the energy you’re using. Try to cultivate a habit of switching lights off when you’re not in the room or turning your heating down by 1 or 2 degrees. These little things can add up to big savings on your energy bill in the long run.
Sell or Re-Gift
If you received something for Christmas that isn’t quite your thing or bought an outfit for a Christmas party that you never ended up wearing – why not consider re-gifting or selling online? Your items will end up in the hands of someone who really wants them, and you’ll get the spare cash you need.
Rather than a pub visit, fancy meal or cinema trip, why not get outdoors and go on a walk or hike? Not only is enjoying time outdoors free but you’ll feel healthier for it as well.
