    It is actually quite incredible how much can be saved this way. In fact, the benefits do not stop there. Living frugally can actually make you healthier, less tired, give you more time and be more fun.

    Case in point: I gave up coffee recently and I estimate I have saved approximately £300 since doing so in September. £300 is a cheap flight to the US! Not only that but each coffee I had was 180 calories in total. Less time at the gym required! I’m not often tired anymore and have a much more balanced daily routine because of it.

    I also gave cycling to work a try. This one is crazy, as it saves me £4.60 on Tube fares every day! I have estimated that I have saved approximately £90 since starting this two months ago. Not only that, but I get a reasonable amount of exercise just by travelling to work and back (it’s a 35 minute/5.5 mile cycle). I have definitely noticed the effects when running – I can go just a little bit faster and shave more time off my PB.

    Also…Pret is an absolute cash sink. I can easily rack up a £6-7 lunch bill in Pret, with all of the calories that go with it. That’s £30-35 a week if done every day. This can easily be substituted with some food prepared the night before. A loaf of bread is incredibly cheap and will often last the whole week. Throw in some lettuce, tomatoes and some chicken and you have lunch sorted for a week for less than a fiver.

    I should be writing a blog post about this…but I’m glad Tim did instead! Cheers lad.
