How to save money - but still live well!

Are we all throwing a fortune away?

Advertising - and peer pressure - can make us waste money. Do we really need to throw out perfectly good clothing and buy new ones, just because fashions changed last week? Is that expensive perfume, which the famous footballer gets paid a fortune to endorse, really better than the economy line? Are there genuine advantages in paying a packet for the latest mobile phone, even though our old one is perfectly serviceable?

Here are just a few ways of saving money - perhaps a lot of it - on everyday items. If you have other ideas which you think we should add, why not contact us now and tell us about them!
