Winter is coming. I even brought my Christmas cardy out and my sheepskin slippers. I think we’re all a bit worried heating bills this winter, so now is the time to be preparing our homes to keep bills down.
Mr Bargain Hunter bought us a tado device earlier this year which helps us control heating remotely, but there are definitely less techy ways to reduce heating bills. Especially as I am one of more than ¾ of Brits worried about bills going up.*
Fit radiator reflectors
I have been using these for a while but not behind all radiators due expense and faff – Mr BH uses insulating tape to stick them to the wall! So imagine my excitement when Radflek sent me their Radiator reflectors. They reflect 95 per cent of wasted heat back …
I recently wrote about Spaceways – a service that helps people save time, money and space. I wondered if this might be of interest for a moving saving feature or a feature on ways to solve the lack of space in London?
For only £6 a month, SpaceWays provides customers with large heavyduty boxes and a free pickup service at a time you choose.
This eliminates the hassle of bringing items to self-storage warehouses and means you don’t need to rent a van or car. When you want your boxes or a particular box back, simply go online and any number of boxes will be returned for a flat fee of £19.
I’ve teamed up with the nice people at Spaceways to give away three lots of free storage – each box is 67 litre heavy-duty box (60cm x 40cm x 37cm).
Earlier this week I was invited to a launch event for Make Up Gallery, the new value make up range from Poundland. It seriously is a bargain at a pound for each item. For young girls, anyone on a tight budget or if you just fancy experimenting, it’s a smart move by Poundland.
What a great event! In Soho, the music blasted from the DJ and an intimate atmosphere was created by the lighting. But forget the venue, I was there to see what this new range would have on offer for me and you.
Firstly, the makeup display looked smart and would fit in with other displays in Boots or Superdrug. The packaging is simple and black. The range will be rolled out to bigger stores at the end of the month and then …
I HATE cleaning but must admit that my house isn’t dirty. The luxury of a lady who does for me two hours a week is a major factor in this.
She really is a luxury for me, but I figure that she’s equivalent to the price of five fancy coffees a week. As I don’t drink coffee or buy my lunch at sandwich shops or coffee shops, she is my treat and IMHO a bargain for me.
Unfortunately, two hours a week isn’t enough to keep my abode spic and span, so I am always looking for good value cleaning products. I tried HOME2HOME and have still not finished the hand wash or cleaner that I bought in 5 litre bottles a year back, so the price was definitely right. They don’t sell everything I …
