Things are getting very uncomfortable here in the UK, with the recent energy price hikes, petrol and diesel prices at their highest ever, and the 1.5% national insurance increase. The future doesn’t look much better as the Bank of England just raised the interest rate by 1% while predicting 10% inflation. For the person in the street that just means one thing, our money is going to be stretched alot further than most of us have ever experienced before.
So what can we do? Energy is a good place to start. Make sure you have LED light bulbs where possible, these are much more efficient, (and they last a lot longer). Try to use as little heating as you can bear. Even turning it down a degree can make a substantial saving, so dig out those sweaters!
A windfall is always nice, but in times like these it can be a lifesaver. Check to see if your current, (or old) account has a sexy name, like Gold, Platinum, Premier, Ultimate Rewards. Also if it came with mobile phone and holiday insurance and car breakdown cover. If so then see if you qualify for a refund of the fees you paid and a nice 8% interest boost! You would be surprised how many of these accounts were mis-sold.
Also, take a look if you had any car finance. PCP was also commonly mis-sold, so if you had finance you should also check to ensure you were not mis-sold this also.
