12 Ways to Save in January

Rebecca BebbingtonRebecca Bebbington · Jan 27, 2022

Make your own coffee

Love a takeout coffee? Whilst the odd latte won’t hurt, If you’re dropping by your local coffee shop 5 times a week and forking out £3+ per cup, you could save a whopping £750 a year by making your own.

Try going meat free

How’s Veganuary going? Did you know that ditching meat just once a week could save you a meaty £106 a year, and five days a week a whopping £752!

Did you know the average worker spends £3.28 each day on a meal deal? Ditch this lunchtime habit and make your own packed lunch for as little as £1 a day! You’ll save £63.37 a month and an even juicier £760.50 a year – that’s a tasty saving.

Walk Everywhere

The price of fuel has skyrocketed in the past year and public transport can be a costly affair when used daily. Make savings where you can by ditching the car or bus for walking.

Free Days Out

Did you know the average cinema trip in 2022 could cost a family of 4 up to £27, and that’s not including the essential snacks! Switch costly days out once in a while for some free fun – like trips to the park or a walk in the woods.

Downshift Brands

Did you know that many branded goods have the exact same contents as their much cheaper counterparts? Downshift to supermarket brands to save tons on your weekly shop over the year.

Make a shopping list

Stop adding unwanted items to your shopping trolley and stick to a shopping list. Throwing in those extra groceries could be costing you a fortune! Save money & reduce waste with a good old fashion list.

Set yourself a budget

It sounds simple, but budgeting your finances is a great way to save money. Stick to a weekly or monthly spending budget and put the rest away for a rainy day.

Shop Yellow Stickers

We all love a bargain, right? If you’re popping to the shops for lunch or tea, hunt down any yellow sticker foods for huge discounts on your groceries. These tend to go out early morning and before the store closes.

Always use discount codes

Don’t spend more than you have to when shopping online… Search for a discount code for a guaranteed saving at the checkout! You’ll find loads for all your favourite fashion, beauty, home & lifestyle brands online at
