5 Top Tips For Saving When It Snows

by Redeeming Riches on January 30, 2013

It’s that time of year again when we’re all anticipating the first big snowfall of the winter, although a bit later than normal, it still comes with the usual mix of excitement and dread. Whether you’re itching to go out and build a snowman with the kids or cursing the revised train timetable, we can all fall into the trap of over preparing for the winter.

1. Ask a Neighbour
When it comes to things you only use at winter, take a snow shovel for example, don’t go splashing out on a brand new one only to use it for a week or two and retire it to the shed. Why not ask a neighbour? In times of toil, like trying to un-stick your car from the ground at 7am, the goodwill of people may just surprise you.

2.Tog up!
Try investing in a higher tog duvet for winter; it can often be tempting to leave the heating on overnight when you hear the sound of that ice cold wind hit the window. But don’t underestimate how warm a good quality quilt can be.

3.Get the wellys out
I’m sure most of us, at one winter or another, have found ourselves lagging behind in our preparations for winter and end up having to face the dreaded snow in our good shoes. Save yourself the inconvenience of ruining another good pair of shoes this winter and invest early in a sturdy pair of wellingtons or boots.

4.Layer up!
When we feel the bite of that first sign of really bad weather it can be tempting to rush to the shops and splash out on a new coat for winter. But don’t forget, you could get ready for winter by simply wearing some more layers. By simply putting a jumper on underneath your jacket you’ll feel the difference immediately and save yourself a small fortune.

5.Freeze!
When it comes to shopping at winter we tend to buy a lot more in bulk than is really necessary. Often in the UK we don’t find ourselves unable to travel for more than a couple of days at a time and it can be important to remember we don’t have to go crazy when it comes to stocking up on the essentials.
