Five Easy Ways To Save Money This Year


How to save more money in 2020 | Equifax UK

Good Morning Lovelies,

A few years ago, I used to work for Wonga Cash Smart. It was an award winning money saving website, which I was proud to be a part of. It was the job that taught me a lot and I couldn’t have been more grateful for the team I worked with.

With much of the information having come away with me, I think about it daily. However, since that job come to an end, I have discovered other ways to save. Today, I am sharing some of them tips with you.

From Facebook groups to discount websites, there is help out there for all. You might just have to look in the right places to find it. And they might just be within one of these five areas…

Use Facebook To Discover Discounts, Deals and Even Freebies: Since uncovering the Extreme Coupons page on Facebook, I have searched the social media site for loads of other places. My favourite, which also has its own website, is Latest Deals. I think at least once a day I have uncovered a cheap find. From a £20 vacuum robot to a 10p food discovery, the website is brilliant. Thanks to Facebook, I may look like I am ordering loads, but actually I am doing so at a much more affordable price.

Make Do and Mend With YouTube: When it comes to finding out how to save money, YouTube can be a great place. Especially, when it comes to crafting or working on a new DIY project. Even my 75-year-old dad would use it to help him with his car. Christmas is a great time to head to the streaming platform to find out ways to decorate for less. Me and my mum have made loads of our own gifts and homewards without spending hardly anything because of it.

Get Help From Your Local Services: Due to my condition, I am unable to work. This has made me much more aware of my money. I often check my account and see what my budget is that month. Thankfully I have been awarded PIP and ESA. This money helps me and my mum a lot and I couldn’t be more thankful for it. Head to your local councils website or the governments to find out what you may be able to claim lovelies. There is nothing wrong with asking for help.

Yellow Stickers and Reduced Products Are The Way To Go: Mum and me have become known for finding products reduced or with yellow stickers on by everyone we know. My brother even tells people not to encourage us, when we go out and find stuff. Once we did a whole shopping trip, filling up my dad’s car, for less than £20. And that filled a freezer. Take a look at the shelves carefully when shopping lovelies, as there may be reduced items that haven’t been pointed out very well. Also, look for the reduced sticker items and ask about the best times to get the items. Lots of supermarkets start reducing items around 2pm, with a second reduction later in the day. There is no shame in buying these and as long as the date is okay, they are normally fine to eat or use.

Make A Switch or A Complaint: Sometimes moaning can help. I don’t like doing it, but it is something that might just help you save. Whilst I will always praise people to a company, I have also had to tell some people when their business isn’t working. By doing this, I have gotten refunds, vouchers and even meals. I’ve also learnt that by complaining, you can also save money, as it allows you to assess your current situations. For example, I rang Virgin a while ago to complain about the cost of my TV bill and managed to get £50 knocked off my monthly usage. All in about 20 minutes! So pick up the phone or send that email.

There are lots more ways I could share with you. I will probably do so in the future. But for now, I hope that these help. In fact, let me know if they do! I would love to hear about your experiences!
