Unleash your inner masterchef and cook up wonders. Not only will this predilection for homemade food will save you money but will also allow you to have a healthy and flavoursome meal.

2. Shower at work or gym to avoid showering at home to save money on your expenses.

3. Watch telly in your gym in order to reduce your energy bills.

4. Run the washing machine and/or the dryer early morning or late at night in order to take advantage of the lower off peak hour rates.

5. Create a ‘no-spend-zone’. In other words, set a day of the week as a no spending day. For example, every Monday you will not spend a single penny.

6. Set the screen brightness of your mobile phone to a usable minimum in order to save power and thus battery.

7. When shopping for groceries, use a basket not a trolley. Having to carry your shopping and having limited space to place the extra shopping will discourage you from buying those unnecessary items.
