Saving on beauty
43. USE TRAINEES FOR HAIR CUTS AND COLOURS
Haircuts and especially colours can cost a load of money. Often trainees have slots where you can get a bargain – and as they are monitored by the hairdressers you are usually in safe hands – and it can amount to a massive discount. (If you have 7 or 8 cuts a year this is a huge saving).
44. EEK OUT TIME BETWEEN TREATMENTS SUCH AS HAIRCUTS AND WAXING
Leaving it an extra week/day or two could mean significantly less appointments over the year – and significant savings too!
45. BUY PRODUCTS ONLINE FOR DISCOUNTS ON RRP
There are some great online shops that offer discounts on beauty products – my favourite at the moment is Gorgeous.
Saving on fitness
46. IF YOU DON’T LOVE THE GYM, THEN CANCEL IT
The gym is a great place if you use it often and get your moneys worth – however for a lot of people it just doesn’t add up. You end up spending a lot on a monthly membership only use it once or twice.
Work out what your average visit is actually costing you to see if it is worth it – and you may be surprised at the results!
Why not look at a pay as you go gym, or individual fitness classes local to you, or even just walking/running more for free?
47. GO OUT WITH FRIEND FOR A WALK INSTEAD OF MEETING FOR COFFEE
I have just switched to walking and running with friends to catch up – as it not only gets us fit, but stops us spending money on coffee and the inevitable temptation of biscuits and cakes!
48. BUY A FITNESS DVD RATHER THAN ATTENDING A CLASS EVERY WEEK
This is a simple trick that saves a fortune as a DVD is often as much as just 1 or 2 classes. Get more out of them and change your routine by swapping DVDs with friends as well.
I have also started finding fitness classes on Youtube – so you could always check that out as well – just an extra idea!
So – we are well into the money saving ideas now – hope you’re finding loads that you’re going to try – for the next set I want to look at gifts and presents – another money sucker!…
