Customers who took part were asked to submit their best money-saving tips for a chance to win a Love2Shop voucher. Congratulations to our winner Aneta who submitted two of the tips below.
Here are some of the tips shared at the webinar:
- “Use an electric blanket when around the home and relaxing and not too mobile to keep heating costs down. Some are as cheap as 4p an hour to run.”
- “Enter realistic saving goals and participate in savings challenges. There's one called the 365-day money challenge. Save 1p on the first day of the year, 2p on the second day. The last day of the year, you'll put away £3.65. By the end of the year, you’ll have ended up saving £667.35.”
- “If you want a day out with the family, London Zoo offers tickets on the day for £3 per person if you show proof of your qualifying benefit. Find out about the zoo’s help for Households scheme and eligibility on their website.”
- “The government Help to Save scheme can give you a 50% top up on your savings. This is for a maximum £50 per month, with a top-up of £25 every month. It’s a great way to save and manage your money efficiently.” Find out more about the scheme and eligibility on the Government website. (Winning tip)
- ”Buy toiletries or dry foods when they are on half price if you can - it can save a lot in the long term.”
- “Shop around for groceries and food, different places have different offers, and it can work out cheaper.”
