Barnaby's Budgeting Tips: Day 5

We all know that shopping around can save us money, but in practice this can be difficult because our lives our so busy. Today's tip is about how getting organised early can help you to save on essentials.

Barnaby says:

"There are some costs, such as insurance, that we all have to pay - but you don't have to stay with the same provider! Put a note in your calendar for the month before your cover runs out, as a reminder to start shopping around for a better deal. Giving yourself that extra bit of time can help you to make sure you aren't paying more than you have to."
