Minimising home costs
There’s no doubt about it – running a home is expensive. From the costs of upkeep to fixing things that go wrong, it seems there’s always something to spend money on. But some things are just good common sense: if you can try and stay on top of maintenance, spending a little from time to time, it’ll save you from bigger bills later.
Of course, what goes on outside is only part of the story. One of the largest slices of your running costs will come from your utility bills, and although government schemes can sometimes help, the first thing to do is to make sure you’re on the best deal with your energy supplier. If not, think about shopping around for a better deal: in the age of the internet, there are dozens of price comparison websites that can save you serious money.
