1. Be a savvy Internet shopper

Make yourself familiar with voucher code websites. Bookmark these sites and make sure you check out the discount codes on www.moneysavingexpert.co.uk as well as Hotukdeals.co.uk before you make a purchase.

Make sure you’re getting the best deal available on your shopping, using price comparison sites, such as Quidco, Kelkoo, Pricerunner and mysupermarket.co.uk

2. Write a list… and stick to it

Make a list and tick things off as you buy them so you don’t duplicate. Internet shopping will help avoid temptation and make it easier to price-check items.
