    Default Recession money-saving tips

    As I have always been a tightwad, even in the good times, I won't be changing my life drastically. However some of you younger silly spendthrifts may need some tips on how to cope.
    Post your tips here

    Tip 1: Get your booze at Aldi, Lidl or Morrisson. They have some excellent wines and spirits at prices not much more than the hypermarkets in Calais.
    There is a very dry Prosecco at Lidl for £1.49. Perfect summer tipple.

    Tip 2. Quit smoking, loser. If you smoke you are weak. Simple as that.

    Tip 3: Change your car to one of the ultra economical models or better still ditch it altogether.

    Wear a pullover indoors in Winter instead of heating the whole house to Mediterranean temperatures.

    Yes. Socialists, save on bog paper by using the same piece for after you speak and after you crap.

    1. Visit nearby relatives and invite yourself to dinner.
    2. Visit confused elderly people and convince them that you are related (invite yourself to dinner)
    3. Steal milk from other peoples doorsteps
    4. Keep a lookout for food tasting stands at the local supermarket, and keep going back for more
    Confusion is a natural state of being

    Don't wear expensive clothes indoors. Change into something cheap / hard wearing when you get home.
