After posting about a competition I am part of with Money Supermarket I have picked my favourite 10 tips from the emails I received. I genuinely loved reading all the tips sent in! So below are the 10 tips I have picked and will be entered into the next part of the competition to win £100! Thank you to everyone who sent me saving tips, and thank you to the people whose tips are in the Commandments!
Withdraw the maximum amount of money you can spend in a week from the cash point. If you pay by card you loose track of what you have spent. - Emma www.glossy-boutique.com
Label a jar with what you are aiming for (e.g trip to Disney!) to motivate you to save money and fill up the jar with loose change. - Catrin www.littleintoxications.blogspot.co.uk
If you see something you want, wait a week - don't impulse buy. After a week if you still really want it then think about getting it (most the time you will have forgotten!) - Laura www.laurrjadore.blogspot.co.uk
Never take your debit/credit card with you on a night out! You are guaranteed to end up spending way more than you want too! Jess www.rafflesbizarre.blogspot.co.uk
Go food shopping nearer closing time! This means you will pick up all the bargain reduced items that are close to the end of their display date. Emeli www.emelisfrostedfashion.blogspot.co.uk
If you shop online then sign up to cashback websites like Quidco where you get money back on your orders. You usually get 10% back or discount codes. Becky www.thelittleblogofbeauty.tumblr.com
Buy multi purpose products where possible! For example your lipstick doubles up as a blush, plus it is obviously going to be the best colour match. Kimberly www.kimberleysbeautyblog.com
Look for a temporary cheap option! If you want something expensive, look for a cheap dupe, you will then see how much use you will get out of it and if it's worth it. Tolly www.tollydollyposhfashion.com
When looking into buying something like insurance, always ring the companies. You will usually get a better deal than online and you can haggle! Faith www.faithsummerloves.blogspot.co.uk
Set up a savings account or ISA. Put a set amount in every week/month. As little as £5 a week would soon add up. Make sure you hide the card though! Sarah www.sarahsbeautyemporium.blogspot.co.uk
What do you think? Do you stick to any of these tips or will you now?
