Budgeting tips for the winter

In the winter, we tend to spend more time at home so our heating and electricity bills will naturally increase. If this sounds alarming to you and you want to minimise the impact this will have on your purse, here are some easy budgeting tips for the winter:

  • Take advantage of high street offers like 3 for 2 gift sets – what you don’t give away as presents can be used at home
  • Track your daily and weekly spending so that you can monitor your money – when you notice the spend starting to creep up one week, you’ll know that you have to reign it in the next week
  • Set budgets for presents and food shopping and stick to them rigidly – try to pay in cash so that you are always aware of how much you are handing over at the till

Energy saving tips for the winter

These tips will help you make the most of your home heating oil spend, and ensure that you stick to your budgets without feeling like you have to sacrifice too much.

  • Get your boiler serviced – not only is it essential for safety reasons, it will also help it to work more efficiently and allow you to maximise your heating oil. While this might incur an initial expense, you’ll see long term savings which will more than make up for it.
  • Turn your electronic devices off standby
  • Only have your Christmas tree lit when you are in the house – never leave it switched off when you’re out and about
  • Always put a full load of washing on, but only boil the kettle for a cuppa with the water you need to save energy when it comes to water usage – it’s better for the environment too.
