I’ve found it so interesting to hear everyone’s feedback on my blog – the fact that it makes sense to a lot of people is really amazing to hear.
So I’ve dedicated today’s post to other people in the Media industry, finding out what they do to save money in small ways to afford their luxuries.

I buy ingredients for lunch on a Monday and make my lunch for the week. Recently I have been buying mixed leaves, chicken, tomatoes, humous, couscous and making a lovely salad and it has saved me so much money. I used to spend £6.50 per day on lunch and now on average lunch costs me £13 a week so I am saving nearly £80 a month!
My flat mate and I make dinner for 4 instead of 2 and bring it for lunch the next day. It means I don’t need to spend extra time making a separate lunch or buying it when I get to work and I save about £15-£20 a week so its well worth while.

Nicola suggests heading to Waitrose at 4pm on a Sunday...when all the fruit has been reduced – it still lasts and you get the great Waitrose quality.
Merrick Cassanova, Managing Editor Red + Esquire (he deals with budgets and money-so trust him on this one!) says make sure before you throw away jars past their date, that it says ‘Use by’ NOT ‘best before’. If the jar says ‘best before’ a certain date (i.e herbs etc), it just means they won’t taste as fresh as if you use them straight away.
