How to save money on everyday items

From clothes to furniture and food, it seems as though no-one is paying full price for anything anymore. With the rise of extreme couponing in the UK it’s no wonder that we feel as though we need more for our money. It is possible to get the things you need for less and here are a few tips on just how to do that.

1. The next time you visit your local supermarket to do your food shop you may want to allow some extra time. I don’t mean so that you can look at every deal in the shop to find the bests ones – that would be far too time consuming! No, what I mean is that by allowing yourself an extra 10 or 15 minutes you could spend that time picking up the receipts that other people have discarded in the car park. Believe it or not but one persons discarded receipt is another person’s voucher for money off their next food shop! By collecting receipts and then taking to the internet to do a price check you might just get yourself some money off vouchers.
2. Online sites such as are on the rise and it’s no wonder when you consider that they host some of the best deal around. Whether you’re looking for money off your next pair of shoes, dining table or a laptop computer, there are vouchers galore to be had!
3. In need of some new clothes? You don’t need to head to the charity shop to get yourself a bargain! Head on down to your normal retailer and always check your garments before you buy. A skag, a stain or even a missing button can be your ticket to some money off. Disclaimer: I’m not advising you to deliberately damage goods for money off!
4. One thing you may want to head to charity shops for are home furnishings. Upcycling is pretty big at the moment. Lamps, tables and other charity shop treasures are just waiting to be given a new lease of life.
5. Last, but not least – packed lunches. Making your own lunch the night before you go to work can save you money every day. You could go for a simple sandwich or use last nights leftovers, either way it’ll save you from spending unnecessary money on food.
