Try to buy secondhand as much as possible eg clothes, furniture, kids toys, vehicles. Big items or small it really saves you money if you never buy new :)

Always pay full credit card by direct debit every month keep a forcast of expected expenses and a record of expenditure. And whereever possible use the credit card but only for items you would expect to pay cash for.
