We've always been a fan of downshifting at MSE, where you switch from brands to much cheaper ‘dupes’ – lookalike products, where often even the packaging is similar to the expensive brand. Now I'm challenging you to 'downshift the downshifters' and swap your favourite £4 Lidl or £6 Aldi perfume dupe for a £1.25 or £2 version at Home Bargains. Will you take the double downshift challenge?
Second-hand shopping has grown in popularity, both online and in charity shops. But what some don't realise is that you can often find BRAND-NEW clothing on second-hand sites. Not only can this save you £££s, but it's a more sustainable option for the planet too.
Until Friday, Topcashback is offering up to £35 cashback on a £50 Asda online spend. That's a big saving, but I wondered... is there a way to get the last £15 'free' as well, to give a totally free shop... or even get paid to shop?
