There are so many ways to save money, but it is not always easy to see how you can make savings in your own life. It can therefore be good to look towards others and see what they do to save money that you can learn from.
For example, my neighbour picked up a piano stool recently which was second hand. It was very cheap and he repaired it and reupholstered it. Although we do not all have carpentry and upholstery skills, it is still worth thinking about where you may be able to pick up things cheaply, There are many things available second hand these days and they could be better quality than items that are available new. Therefore it is worth thinking hard about whether you should automatically buy things new or look to see whether you can find some cheaper second hand items first.
