Ways To Save Money Without Being Miserable

Here at WOW Free Stuff we love a freebie, however we’re also passionate about saving money where we can. We know how easy it is to waste money and spend it without even thinking. That is why we have put together this quick guide of easy ways to save money. No one says you have to completely change your life to save money; instead a few tweaks can make all the difference.

Buying a House

Although the thought of signing into a mortgage can be scary, it doesn’t have to be this way. For example, did you know that you can pay off your mortgage quicker than expected? Of course it goes without saying that the quicker you can pay off your mortgage the more money you’ll save in the long run, which is exactly what everyone wants.

Already got a mortgage? Doesn’t worry you could still save. Make sure you look into the possibility of switching to a cheaper mortgage deal.

A mortgage is a big deal so make sure that you go to an independent mortgage broker for advice and support.

Keeping Your House Warm

Energy bills are not really something we can avoid, but that doesn’t mean we can’t save a bit of money where we can. Research shows that some people could save nearly £500 a year by switching energy supplier.

Don’t forget though, other utilities could be costing you more than you need to pay as well. Often you can get the same service by different companies at a lower cost – especially as a customer who is entitled to an introductory rate. Think about phone, broadband, mobile phone, home insurance etc. – that’s a lot of places that you could be saving money.

Food Shopping

Food for your household is another essential that you can’t do without. That said you should really do what you can to save where you can. This doesn’t have to mean cutting back or changing brands. First of all use an app like MySupermarket which will help you compare prices between stores. This will allow you to see which supermarket you should go to that week for the most cost effective shop.

Try and do your shopping online rather than visiting a store. This will prevent you from impulse buying items that you don’t need – those baskets at the ends of the aisle are there for a reason!

If you are up for trying other brands then a visit to Lidl or Aldi is recommended. You could save a fortune if you’re not overly fussed about brand names.

Getting Out and About

Every single day people spend more money on their train tickets than they need to. Lots of people don’t realise that they could save money on their regular commute with a railcard. Make sure you check the train company website to find out about railcards and see if there is one that could give you cheaper tickets.

As with anything you buy, you should shop around for tickets. Make sure you compare places such as The Train Line, Red Spotted Hanky and the train company’s direct website to see which one gives you the cheapest offer. If you have time try ringing them up too, to see if you can haggle for a deal.

If you know when you will be travelling then make sure that you boo in advance. The ultimate time to book is 12 weeks before but anytime in advance could save you some money. Play around with time of travel too if you can as often off-peak times will save you money.

You Are Allowed To Treat Yourself

Just because you are trying to be sensible with money that doesn’t mean you can’t treat yourself. That doesn’t mean you have to splash the cash, instead be a savvy shopper and do what you can to save money.

For example have you thought of taking part in a house swap as an alternative to holiday accommodation? You simply join the site and find a household that you like the look of and organise a swap with them. This allows you to have a holiday without the worry of spending out for costly holiday homes or hotels.

If you can’t stretch to a holiday then look into cost effective ways to treat yourself to a day out. Lots of websites such as Lastminute.com offer cheap entry to places such as Alton Towers. There are often offers in daily newspapers if you collect a certain number of coupons too, so make sure you look out for those.
