We are all about saving cash here and what better place to start, than in the comfort of your own home. You probably do not realise it, but you are almost certainly wasting a fortune every day of your life. A fortune that you could be spending on other things like a holiday at that luxury resort or the new car you saw coming home from work. Well, not to worry because from now on you are going to use our advice and save more today.

Grow Your Own Veg

Organic fruit and vegetables are better for you and this means less trips to the doctors or dentists, saving you cash. The trouble is that organic food bought from a shop is expensive and besides, you cannot be completely sure it is actually organic, even if it does taste better. To fix this problem and save your pennies, grow your own produce in your back garden. All you need to do is to lay down some soil, plant the seeds, watch them grow and dig them up. You will save money and know your family is eating good, natural greens.

Switch Off Lights

We are sure there is at least one person in your household fussing about turning off the lights in the rooms of the house that no one is in. You should probably start listening to them because as hard as it is to believe, even just doing this will reduce your electricity bills. But you should also unplug electrical devices that are not being used and reduce your electricity usage where you can. For instance, rather than putting the dishwasher on after every meal, wash them up yourself for once. If you have a couple items of clothing that you need washed a business meeting or event, wash your clothes in the bath rather than turning on the washing machine. Simple things like this will leave you with more money to spend at the end of each month.

Shut Doors

This comes down to heating and insulation. If you want a simple way of saving money on your heating, just making sure you are shutting doors, when you enter and leave a room, keeping heat in the house. If you want another way to save money, start reducing how often you turn the heating on. The house is naturally warmer than you think it is and you just have to allow a little bit of team for your body to get used to the change in temperature.

DIY

If you are thinking about getting some repairs done to your home, first consider whether you can do it yourself. You would be surprised how easy a broken fence is to fix and how many videos on Youtube there are, that will walk you through the process of fixing a leaking tap. Obviously if it is a more complex job, hire a professional. But if it is a simple task, do it yourself.

These tips will save you a bundle and reduce your energy bills so that you have more money in the bank. We hope you agree.
