money saving tips! was created by bluefairy
I've been trying to think of the best ways to save money. So if anyone has any tips or ideas maybe they would like to share them!

I already buy most of my clothes in charity shops and sell on the kids unwanted toys etc...

But if you know any really cheap meals, ways to recycle use, ways to entertain kids, earn extra cash or any other cost cutting ideas please tell.

Hi Bluefairy

You could also join Wiki's very own group called \"Money Savings Ideas\". You can find this by going to the \"Community\" tab at the top of the hompage, and scrolling down to \"support groups\" and clicking on that.

My kids are all involved in Sea Cadets (girls and boys) - they have some great friends and events run by the unit are inexpensive - the experience they get can be really worthwhile. Every time the uniform is too small it is replaced by the unit.

Maybe not what you had in mind but food for thought.

great post blue !!

this is a small tip...re electricity and one that i wasnt aware of...

i switch all the plugs off when not in use....

i noticed the meter wizzing round the other day when plugs were on, when i switched them off bar the fridge i thought the wizzing thing has stopped as it was so slow..

makes a huge difference !!!

just have to remember when making cup of tea to switch kettle on otherwise i think its broken !!! lol

Hi Bluefairy

For ways of saving money on food depends what time you hit the supermarket, if you go after 8pm you can save quite a bit in their reduced section.You could pick up a pack of mince for around half the orginal price, seems cooking in bulk then freezing food is another way on saving money on food.

Look out for the vouchers in the news of the world pretty sure there doing another 1 this sunday save £5 when you spend £30 or mre in Tesco.Tesco club points excellent way to get vouchers and save them for xmas.

Need the ages of your children to think of free entertainment for them.
