Great British Budget Day 1

Today is the first day of the Great British Budget!

This month I am going to be telling you what Barnaby the Budget pig's top money saving tips are along with my own tips on how to save money on your shopping. I will also be sharing some of my budget meals which are low on cost but do not compromise on quality or taste.

Today's top tip is:

Barnaby says: "Could you save on your energy bills? Turning your thermostat down by a few degrees could save you up to £65 a year, so remember to get into the habit of putting on a jumper BEFORE you turn up the heating! You should also take regular meter readings to make sure you're not paying too much"

This is something which we already do. Every month, the day after the direct debit has been paid, I take meter readings and put them onto our online energy account. This allows us to see how much energy we have used and whether we are in credit or not. So far, over the past year, we have built up a lot of credit to help during the cold winter months. However when I provided the meter readings last month our bill was significantly higher. So this last month we have turned the thermostat down in the hope that this month our bill will not be as high.

Fingers crossed it will be lower!
