a dozen ways to be frugal

Filed under: frugal — plonkee @ 4:29 pm

Here are a dozen ways that I try to be frugal

  1. Not owning a car
  2. Living in an ‘up and coming’ rather than established area
  3. Shopping around for insurance and utilities
  4. Putting everything possible onto direct debit for the discounts
  5. Wearing extra jumpers rather than turning up the heat
  6. Walking everywhere instead of taking the bus
  7. Using discount supermarket Lidl
  8. Borrowing books from the library
  9. Cooking from scratch
  10. Using my loyalty cards whenever possible
  11. Checking out the reduced section in the supermarket
  12. Booking rail travel in advance

What else should I be doing?
