Inspired by recent Instagram posts, here are my 10 things I no longer waste money on:
1. Expensive Vitamins
I researched a lot of evidence to suggest you’re just paying for kinda fancy wee (as you don’t absorb most of it). I cut out the tablets and worked on getting the vitamins and nutrients from my diet.
2. Coffee From Chains
I used to buy 1-3 a day from Costa, Starbucks etc. Due to calories and cost, I now make them at home and take them in a thermos.
3. Living in London
I moved out of London 3 years ago and although I love the city, I knew I would have a better life outside of it (so expensive!)
4. Full Priced Theatre
I love my theatre shows and still go 10+ times a year but I shop around for good deals first
5. First Hand Clothing
I used to shop just when bored and never returned anything (would donate it all)
6. Dining Out Every Weekend
We still go for meals out but I try and keep it to a treat. We probably go out to eat once a month now
7. Travel at Full Cost
I still travel but I’m way more savvy that just blindly buying tickets
8. Music Services
£9.99 a month for Spotify might be too much for some but personally I think it’s worth every penny
9. Designer Items
I only buy pre owned and only buy if I really want something.
10. Over the Top Food Shop
We cut our food shop right down and only buy what we will actually eat!
