- First Group (the bus company) are offering buy once, travel twice offer on day tickets in my city, every weekend in January - which meant I halved my travel costs this weekend. If you use public transport, follow their social media accounts - I wouldn't have known about this at all if I wasn't following them on Facebook.
TOTAL SAVED: £4.20.
- We were given an almost full box of red wine - it's OK to drink, but I'm freezing most of it into silicon cup cake moulds ready for use in recipes - a splash on wine makes the most of otherwise budget recipes.
TOTAL GAINED: A £10 box of wine.
- I cut my own hair and it came out really well. It's the second time I've tried it, the hair-cutting scissors paid for themselves with the first cut. I'll write up a post with links later this week.
TOTAL SAVED: £25 average.
