Boylin’s Self Store’s Top Tips on How to: ‘Waste Not, Want Not’

  • Get your washing on the lineYour dryer is one of the biggest users of electricity in your house. Luckily, it is one of the appliances that can easily be replaced by hanging your laundry outside on the line on any day that isn’t raining!
  • Turn off the water: Don’t clean your teeth, wash your hands or do the dishes with the water running constantly. Try filling a bowl or basin with water at the sink and try to shorten your showers. A smart water meter is handy to keep track of your water usage!
  • Walk or cycle wherever possible: That quick nip to the shops can unnecessarily burn valuable and now expensive fuel.
  • Meal plan: Plan your menu before you go shopping and only buy what you need. If you are easily swayed by temptation, switch to a smaller store or try Lidl or Aldi.
  • Stock up: Make sure that you always having something in your cupboards and freezer that you can make a meal out of. Nothing drains the budget faster than running out to the shop for a few quick things or reaching for the takeaway menu.
  • Grown your own: If you stick to easily-grown fruit and veg that you will eat, it’s possible to save money by growing your own.
  • Leftovers are your friend: Leftovers can be used to make stir fries, pies, pasta dishes.
  • Use it up: Make use of over-ripe fruit and veg. Brown bananas can be mashed up and used to make banana loaf. Apple can be grated into cakes or porridge. Use oranges in place of lemons in recipes such as paella. Veg that’s past its best can be grated into casseroles or sauces or used to make soup.

More Handy Hacks to Help You Save Money during the Cost-Of-Living Crisis

  • Borrow rather than buy: Ask around if you need something for a short time or just for one job. Your friends and neighbours might have just what you are looking for.
  • Repair, don’t replace: Before you throw away your washing machine or cooker and buy a new one, see if it can be repaired. It is usually less expensive, and appliances can often run perfectly well for many more years.
  • Be thrifty: If you haven’t worn an item in the last year, it’s unlikely you’re going to. Sell it, recycle or donate.
  • Hunt for a bargain: It is amazing what you can find in charity shops nowadays, and the vintage look is super on trend at the moment.
  • Buy used: You can pick up toys and hardly worn clothes on many Facebook marketplaces.
