I save money by going to a cheap pub instead of paying £2.50 for a pint.

Ok I don't actually drink pints but it's a good comparison figure.

Yea, I save by not going out with my friends much. But I start spending a hundred or two during the holidays though, mostly on PC hardware.

I hardly ever save anything. That's what parents are for. However I do have a couple of savings bonds that were gifts. I'd be kind of stupid to cash those.

I put my pay checks in a savings account. How long they will stay there is anybody's guess.

Money is a wonderful thing........
This is only my guess, but I reckon people who work for their money usually like to save it, more than people who gets it for free

It has a good section on student money saving, but most of it is aimed at people with a house and kids

agree with this, but even then, when i was earning money i had full control over what i could spend, so i spent it all pretty quickly, but did save up for stuff that i originally wanted instead of jus buying lots of unnecessary things

- Buy in bulk, especially things like shampoo etc.
- Go to sales.
- ebay.
- Go to £-stretcher shops, they may have a bad reputation, but you'd be suprised the amount of quality products you can find.
- Find cheap pubs/clubs/bars in your area, and visit them more often than the expensive ones.

Alternatively, don't buy stupid items you will never use, and/or get a better paid job.

Quality advice there, especially the last point. I used to spend silly amounts on stuff I don't wear/use but I seem to have grown out of that!

I have a jar where I put in all loose change that I know will go to waste if I leave it in my pocket. Then I take the heavy jar to ASDA and use the Coinstar machine to change the money into notes. I last changed up 2 weeks ago and got £94! Very good! I reccoment it. Also, you don't need to just put in coppers; pound coins, two pound coins, and silvers are all acceptable. You forget about it once you put it in there.

Coinstar take 10%! What's wrong with counting it yourself and taking it to the bank?

I save money in two main ways

1. Not drinking (alcohol)
2. Absolutely hating shopping, so rarely do it
