Saving Money: Down the Plug Hole

There are two things that really bug me when I’m trying to save money. The first is expensive candles – I wouldn’t burn a £20 note, so why burn a £20 candle?! Especially now I know making my own isn’t so difficult..

It’s something you don’t really think about – I know I haven’t really as water bills have always been included in my rent. But starting from next year they won’t be, so I’ve been looking at water costs – and it’s more than I imagined. This all meant I was doubly grateful when Salamander Pumps got in touch with this infographic;

I never really thought that we used so much water a day. Which is bad for an ex-geography student, though admittedly the exam covering ‘Water Conflicts’ was the reason I didn’t get an A* at A-Level (by one single mark #notbitteratall). And most of it gets used for flushing the toilet. That worries me! I live in a rented room in my landlady’s house so I won’t stop flushing the toilet anytime soon, but it’s definitely made me think that the ‘if its yellow, let it mellow’ strategy might come into play when me and W finally move in together and start paying bills (sorry babe!).

Do you have any tips for saving money on water bills?
