My Gran passed away a long time ago but there are things that have stuck with me – sayings about saving that are often not repeated but sayings that I believe should be repeated and passed down from one generation to the next! Saving money is very important so please read on to find out what my gran said!

 

Living on her own for over 20 years after my Grandad died, she was a keen saver who saved each year to travel to visit her sister in Canada at the same time as going on outings with her friends and making sure her house was always spotless.

So, what were my Grandmother’s top tips?  Well I’ve listed some of them below just for you…

Grow Your Own

While Gran never had a large garden, she did grow herbs in a plant pot on the windowsill just outside her kitchen window.  Why not consider buying a few seeds in your local pound shop and get planting?  Will certainly save you a few pounds and make your food taste delicious.

Waste not, want not

I always found this saying confusing as a child but as an adult it makes perfect sense.  Gran was always about preparation, making meals in bulk and ensuring nothing went to waste.  Why not give your own meal planning a go and head over to my How to Meal Plan post to find out how?

Look after the pennies and the pounds will look after themselves

Again, another saying that only made sense as an adult.  But it is still true today, break your savings target in to small chunks and just concentrate on saving a small amount – after all it will soon amass in to a large amount of savings without you worrying too much!

Make do and mend

This really is a classic and one which has seen a revival in recent years.  My gran always mended – mended her skirt, sewed patches in her bedspread, fixed rather than throw something out.  Why not see what things you can mend instead of throwing them out?  I recently mended our tumble dryer – bought the part on EBay and watched a YouTube video on how to install it – saved myself hundreds!
