This is a super tip that I have learnt over the years and it has saved me £££.

When I moved to the UK, I used to send money back home using my bank. I did that for more than 2 years and one day I came across alternate money transfer company and that changed the way I send money to my loved ones.

Banks charge hidden fees in bad exchange rates - every time you blindly use your bank to send money overseas, you could be losing as much as 10-15% (I am not kidding!).

Check this guide and do your calculations before transferring money abroad.

Try alternate money transfer services like TransferWise and save as much as £40 on every £1000 you transfer abroad - check it out now: https://www.comparism.com/transferwise-review/

You're preaching to the converted mate. Most if not all of us on here use Revolut. Best exchange rates around and no fees.

No it isn't free. It wears out your shoes and makes you hungry.

Yes, walking is not free.

A cost benefit analysis should always be considered before creating inaccurate savings tips !

Check them to make sure there isn’t any dust clogging them and that they’re fairly clean. Look behind the appliances, and use your vacuum to gently clear away dust. Check all of the vents, especially on refrigerators, dryers, and heating and cooling units. The less dust you have blocking the mechanics of these devices, the more efficiently they’ll run (saving you on your energy bill) and the longer they’ll last (saving you on replacement costs)

Easy tip to keep your bananas from turning brown by wrapping the end in cling film to stop oxygen from getting into the broken stalk part! This should give you an extra few days of shelf life

When talking to a dealer about a car purchase, ask them what extra 'support' the manufacturer can offer to purchase or lease a vehicle from them. VW (covering SEAT - SKODA - VW) call it an RFO and Volvo call it a FIN. The dealer gets a back end bonus for every business contract hire or lease purchase. This will depend on who you talk to and the experience of the person at the dealer. Happy shopping!
