I'm trying to save for uni and other things at the moment, so I thought it would be cool to share ideas about ways to save money!
Here's my first tip: bake all your own bread. It costs a fraction of the price of decent supermarket bread and tastes much better too!
Go shopping with friends, that way you can take advantage of more offers like 'buy one get one free' etc
It's not saving money on things like bread and salt that's going to help you. These are inferior goods and don't really make a difference.
I guess if you want to save money it has to be on things like transportation, cell phone bills, drinks, entertainment..
Or get a free sim card from o2 where you can get 300 free txts a month as long as you top up £10 a month.
If you use it effectively you can spend about £70-£80 a year on credit and that covers everything.
I want the bread recipe! All my home-made bread turns out really really heavy, a nice medium would be cool.
Walk. Don't use taxis (unless you absolutley need to).
Get people to call you back using the "but I'm a skint student" (works on parents)
Buy seasonal veg.
Don't go shopping when you are hungry otherwise you waste money and buy crisps, sweets etc
Buy air tight containers so cakes/ things that go in air tight containers don't go off... have no idea what.. perishables?
Buy some vanilla escence. When you want something sweet to eat like chocolate you sniff it and it takes the craving away. Sounds mad but it really works!!
