  • Rice maker and sushi knives - we love rice, and my OH makes the best sushi in town. So instead of spending £40+ on sushi takeaways, we make loads for 10 pounds, and super fresh at that.

    Orange sticks and nail files - I do my manicures and pedicures myself, it saves loads of ££££ on these. My nail salons charge fortune for them, and sometimes I do them much better then them.

    Kids lunch boxes. Before was spending about £20 a week on school dinners - now spend about £5 and they're eating much healthier food that they actually like.
