How she lived a year on just £1 a day

Have you heard the name Kath Kelly?

Kath bet her friends that she could live on just £1 per day for a year. This would really encourage her to come up with some ingenious ways to save money and survive the credit crunch in the process!!

Kath has now written a book which is available at Amazon - but here's a wee taster of the ideas she came up with to help save money:

(1) Collect as many coupons, leaflets and free papers for vouchers. They often have 2 for 1 meal offers, free cinema showings and free entry to many events.

(2) Look in shop windows and on noticeboards for "free to collector" goods. We have also looked at Gumtree in the past at - they also have a free to a good home section.

(3) Never ignore Market Researchers! They often have freebies to give away and questionnaires to complete. Often these questionnaires can result in you being sent shampoo, alcohol samples, etc etc.

(4) Go shopping at the end of the day to benefit from end of day reductions in delis and shops. Look for dented tins and also 2 for 1 offers. Also learn how to "stretch food" - eg Buy a chicken, roast it today, use the spare meat in a risotto and then use the bones to make soup the next day!

(5) Leave notes instead of using your mobile phone and also use the internet at the library.

Another 5 tips coming tomorrow........
