In our previous blog, we took a quick look at some handy hints and tips for improving the health of your bank balance. Here in the second instalment in our continuing series, we take a look at some more money saving tips and tricks, perfect for helping you save money and get on top of your debts.
Take a Trip to the Market
When it comes to your weekly shop, it’s worth shopping around to find the best deals. One of the simplest ways to eat well for less is to pay a trip to your local market.
Market stalls typically have lower overheads than supermarkets, which can mean lower prices, allowing you to make some real savings.
Websites such as Mysupermarket will also allow you to compare the prices of individual items at the major supermarket retailers, so you can get the best deals and shop savvy.
Change Energy Supplier
Many households could save a significant amount of money by switching their energy supplier. However, millions of us simply fail to do so. Hence, try checking price comparison websites to see if you could be saving money on the cost of your energy bills.
Using less energy in your home is not only good for the environment, but it can also benefit your bank balance too. For example, making a few simple changes, such as switching from traditional light bulbs to energy saving alternatives, can make a big difference when it comes to your energy bills.
Making sure to turn off lights when you leave a room, and your appliances and gadgets when they’re not in use, can also help you to make some real savings.
Many of us enjoy treating ourselves to a bought lunch. Whilst the cost of this might not seem like much, over time, this can really build up, especially if you’re eating out every day. Therefore, try making and bringing your own lunch to work; you’ll be surprised at how much you can save.
If you’re struggling with debt, then it’s also important to consider seeking expert advice. Here at Debt Advisory Services (Scotland) Limited, we have many years experience of providing debt solutions in Scotland, and can help you on the road to becoming debt free.
