How am I saving Money?
CashBack Credit Card
I personally do not think that I am using the card to its full capacity!! I often buy something and forget to use it, so I am going to try and change this habit for the next year of use.
I have also contacted American Express and requested a duplicate card for my wife. This way I will be able to increase the overall usage of the card. One thing that very rarely went on the card was the Supermarket shopping. So just this little change should give me even bigger savings next year.
I have for sometime now been using Bio Diesel, this has proved to be the biggest saver of all.
I am currently spending £0.35 per litre.
According to my calculations this works out that I am saving around £1,896 per year!!!
Here is my previous blog on Bio Diesel.
CashBack Web Site

I use a lot of stamps a month and in order to cut down the amount I spend on stamps I often take a look at eBay to see what is on offer. Not only can I pick up a book of a 100 cheaper, but I also purchase them through the CashBack web site and pay with my American Express CashBack card to get even greater discounts.
I also send all my post 2nd class!
I am a great believer in sending Faxes. The main reason for this is that my current telephone contract gives me free calls to any 01, 02, 0870 or 0845 number.
So if it can be sent by fax instead of by post then that is what I do.
I have a solar panel that I use to charge a 12V car battery. This in turn is then used to charge some of my electrical appliances such as my mobile. I really do not know how money doing this saves me, but I feel good for being greener. Also I got the battery very cheap from the scrapyard, it even came with a 30 day guarantee.
Whenever I know in advance that I am going to make a purchase or go to a certain restaurant, I do an on-line search to see if there are any current discounts.
I am sure that there are other things that I do, but can not think of them at the moment – but when I do I will blog it here!!!
