With most of the world in a recession it is a perfect time to reassess how you live and how you spend money. There are many ways just a few small changes around the house can make a dent in how much you spend each week. We’ve pulled together 5 tips to becoming the thrifty person you always dreamed of.
1. Be house proud
Take care of your furniture & make sure it lasts longer by rubbing wax in to wood to cease it drying out, or applying leather conditioner with a soft rag to prevent your leather armchair looking worn & cracked.
If your upholstery is looking a tiny bit faded, think about getting sofas & armchairs recovered or re-upholstered by a specialist service rather than heading to the shops to buy a brand spanking new suite.
2. Keep your clothes in mint condition
Keep knitwear looking smart by shaving off bobbles with a blunt razor & keep your outdoor apparel looking well-groomed by using a clothes brush on coats & jackets to pick up bits of fluff.
According to retailer John Lewis, you can also use banana skins to add some shine to your shoes or bicarbonate of soda to refresh smelly trainers.
3. Transform elderly in to new
Make-do-and-mend.org has step-by-step instructions on how to repair elderly clothes suffering from pulled hems or frayed edges, as well as advice on how to transform your elderly clothes in to new items.
Regrettably, they are not all so handy with a needle & thread, so think about investing in a basic "how-to" book, such as Sewing for Dummies by Janice Saunders Maresh, which teaches readers the basic stitches, & how to sew buttonholes & add zips.
4. Don't waste food
British households throw away billions of pounds of uneaten food each year. Stick to a strict list while doing your every week shop & turn your leftovers in to a meal for tomorrow. Other top tips include freezing unused fresh herbs & chillies, & turning stale bread in to breadcrumbs.
5. Be Neat without the cost
Don't waste funds on a cupboard filled with cleaning products. Bicarbonate of soda will leave worktops spotless, white wine vinegar lifts limescale from sinks, & half a lemon heated for a couple of minutes in the microwave will remove lingering smells.
So as you are well on your way no only to becoming a domestic goddess or god, but also a professional moneysaver, the next challenge is getting everyone else to join in around the house.
