Question by InDiAnNaJoNeS: How can I save money on a day to day basis?
Well, the cash flow ain’t so good at the moment… I’m half way into my overdraft, credit card is near it’s limit, and just starting a new job. I have a new home and a holiday next year to budget for.
SO – how do I save money from day to day? My partner and I share all bills, rent and other expenses equally. We already cycle to work, or take the cheapest route possible ie. bus. We have a lot of homemade foods so as bread, healthy pizzas, pasta sauces etc, as this works out a lot cheaper. We take lunch to work rather than buying it, and only go out for a few drinks on the rare occasion. We shop at Asda, which seems to be the cheapest supermarket. As you can see, we are really trying to be economical here! Also I do all the washing on a 40 cycle to keep electricity down, and we turn lights off and all that.
Does anyone have any tips as to what else we can do?
As far as better paying job goes – veterinary nursing is not a job you do for money I’m afraid, and I’m not qaulified to do anything else. My partner works for the Daily Mail, and is doing very well, so hopefully his salary will go up soon.

Sounds as if you are already doing everything you can and still sinking. Maybe looking for a better paying job would help.
