Re-using teabags, cutting their own hair and only flushing the loo once a day are some of Brits’ quirkier money-saving hacks, a study has revealed.
Researchers looked into the inventive ways people save money and found that a just under a third still swear by saving pennies in a jar.
Other common techniques include giving up the gym to work out at home, eating random concoctions from the freezer to avoid shopping, and turning off all the plugs before leaving the house.
Eating at other people’s homes as often as possible, bulk buying items and sewing or knitting their own clothes were among the more unusual money-saving hacks.
And savvy Brits believe their money saving tricks save them £423 per person every year.
