Save some Money!
I had been stuck with my Gas & Electric company for some time, a busy family lifestyle has meant that I hadn't had time to look around for a better deal. Finally after paying large direct debits each month I decided to look around at cheaper tariffs and various Utility providers. After doing some research I came across Look After My Bills. You may have heard of them on BBC's Dragons Den, they were the first company to have all five of the Dragons pitching for them. I have saved around £250 on switching to a new deal, and will be using these extra savings on spending on my family instead of paying extortionate energy prices.
Once you have made savings on your expenditure items, put the money aside into a savings account. This will enable you to the spare cash towards a family day out or an emergency item if required, giving you peace of mind.
