Living on the smell of an oily rag

It suddenly came to me today that I have spent a large part of my life being a penny pincher.  It has been a feature of my travelling days, my student days, motherhood, working life and now retirement.

Over the years I have saved money with groceries, furniture and furnishings, children’s schoolclothes and books, my clothes, toys etc. etc.

This blog is going to introduce readers to some of the ways and areas of saving money that will make their lives a little easier in these economically trying times.

I welcome any input from anyone on methods they use or handy hints they have discovered to make their bank balances a little healthier and their lives a little less financially stressful.
