Psssst! ‘SECRET’ Office & Schuh outlets flogging cheap, slightly blemished shoes
Nothing beats the feeling of a new pair of shoes, but this can quickly turn into heartache if they get scuffed the first time you wear them. So why not save yourself the misery (and some dosh) with a pair that isn't quite immaculate in the first place?
Have yourself a MoneySaving Christmas… starting with the best way to bag a cheap, sustainable Christmas jumper from only £3
Jumpers are for life, not just for Christmas, but most of us only wear our most garish festive get-up for one or two days a year, and then feel pressure to buy a new one the following year. That's neither sustainable nor MoneySaving, so what can we do about it? I have a few ideas...
Get paid to recycle old clothes and shoes, eg, £5 off at M&S, Schuh and H&M
Recycle Week may be over (Mon 21–Sun 27 Sep), but it's still 'Second-hand September', reminding us to check if we can buy items second-hand via charity shops, eBay, apps, or from each other before buying 'fast-fashion' to help protect the environment. But the reality is, clothes and shoes do wear out, so how do we sustainably dispose of items we can no longer use?
MSE's first ever Eco-MoneySaving charity clothes swap
As it's Second-hand September – where Oxfam is asking people pledge to buy nothing new all this month – I decided to organise our first ever clothes swap in the MSE office.

Beware... Littlewoods often charges up to 34% MORE than Very.co.uk for the SAME item
Littlewoods and Very.co.uk are both essentially online 'department stores' and they're owned by the same parent company, Shop Direct. The two sites look very similar, and while the product ranges aren't always identical, there's a lot of crossover. So you can surely buy from either and it makes no difference… right? WRONG!
How I saved £16 on a pair of black jeans by dyeing a white pair at home
You find a pair of jeans, they're in your size and they're cheap... just one problem – the colour’s all wrong. I had this recently with a pair of white jeans (I wanted black) in my size, reduced from £26 to £5 in the Dorothy Perkins sale. What was I to do?
Why it pays to sign up to a retailer's loyalty scheme or newsletter to unlock 'hidden' extras
We all want to make our money go further, and signing up for retailers’ loyalty schemes or newsletters can be a great way to do this and even earn yourself ‘free’ money. However, did you know there’s often more to these schemes than earning points?
