I buy items in bulk when they are on special.  I always look through the catelogues and write down specials.  It is worth going to different stores to save.

We are struggling with $50k worth of debt so i don't think i am one to give advise on budgetting! my one piece of advise that has saved us numerous times is pay a little of your electricity bill each pay cheque. we pay $100 per fortnight and it is lovely to get a bill that says $120 credit! original.gif

I budget, and have savings as part of the budget. It means that when something unexpected comes up, we can afford it.

In my opinion, it is the people who have experienced adversity (of any sort) that make the best teachers for others - it means you can stand tall, share your story and in turn, assist others.  Congrats on this great tip....personally this is what we do too with all our bills (set up via direct debit) and it saves us time, money and heartache each month!  Cheers Jodie Nolan

Saved $300 off Electricity bill by posting a note on each switch that said 'If you turn this on put 50c in the electricity jar'.

(made us all think twice before turning on a switch - especially the kids!)
