Giant pub chain Wetherspoon is popular with those wanting cheap drinks and no-fuss food at a decent price. Many of its 900+ pubs are housed in grandiose buildings steeped in history – and let's not forget those jazzy (some might say garish) carpets which are so renowned, they have their own Instagram page.
If 2001: A Space Odyssey didn't put you off robots for life, chances are you'll have heard of Google Home, and if not, you might be aware of other smart speakers or 'robot assistants' – like Amazon's Alexa.
The most environmentally-friendly option might be to live off-grid with no phone and no contact with the outside world, but tempting as that is, I wouldn’t be without my smartphone. I normally like to keep things for as long as possible, but recently technology has been forcing me to upgrade more often than I’d like. So what’s the most sustainable way to do this? Buy second-hand, which of course is also cheaper – sometimes by a lot.
Sometimes, you do want to try an expensive brand to see if it lives up to the hype, but going out and buying the full-size product without knowing if you’ll like it sends chills down a MoneySaver’s spine. Beauty boxes have a tendency to contain some products you’ll use and others you won’t, as you rarely get to choose what’s inside. This one’s different…
If you're looking to stock the cupboards with non-perishable foods (think tins and jars), did you know you don't have to hunt for yellow stickers in the supermarket? You can go online to Approved Food and get ‘past best-before’ groceries delivered to your door in bulk...
Remember: ‘Best-before’ is not the same as ‘use-by’ – more on the difference below – so with this deal you'll stop perfectly edible food going to waste, and hopefully save money as well.
Here's a trick to bag £45-worth of Boots No7 beauty products for £10 by combining a 'free gift' offer with a coupon in store. Though if you'd rather shop online, don't worry – there's a slightly lesser trick further down where I explain how you can grab £37-worth of No7 for £12 instead.
MSE Update Tue 20 Aug: While both the coupon and offer are due to last till next week, as this has been very popular some stores may have sold out - so you may want to check stock before making a trip.
Okay, so it's 2019 and we don't exactly have hoverboards or flying cars, but what we do have is an artificially intelligent companion known as 'Alexa'. In this guide I'll show you how to get an Alexa device such as an Echo cheaply, or if you have one already, how Alexa can bag you some freebies.
