Cancel your unused subscriptions

Did you know that Brits spend £14 a month on unused subscriptions every month That could be far better spent on your utility bills currently, so you must get rid of the ones you’re not using!

Consider your streaming subscriptions like Netflix or Disney+ and if there’s nothing you want to watch then maybe it’s time to stop your subscription. You can always get your subscription back in a few months if a new movie or show you want to watch comes out.

Organise your garage

Around 56% of UK adults say they have unusable rooms around the home due to them being extremely cluttered. One of the main rooms that this happens in is the garage. Too often, Brits just use garages to store items they don’t often use, with no organisation in place.

Use one of your winter weekends to rummage through it all and get rid of your unwanted items and organise the items you do want to keep. If you’re someone with a lot of tools then you may benefit from purchasing tool chest cabinets to fit everything you need in. The extra space left behind can then be used for whatever you want. This includes starting a home gym or parking your car.

Clear out your wardrobe

Another area of the home that can get quite hectic is the wardrobe. You may have clothes that are incredibly old and no longer to your taste. If this is the case for you then maybe it’s time to say goodbye. We recommend creating three piles: keep, don’t keep, and a maybe pile. Once you’ve sifted through everything, go back to your maybe pile and be cutthroat with your decisions.

Once you’ve got a pile of clothes you no longer want, there are plenty of ways to turn them into cash. This extra money could then be used to pay your household bills or even get you some new clothes.
