    Secure a tennis ball or similar to your back so it's impossible to accidently roll over onto your back in your sleep.

    This doesn't work. My husband snores as much when he is on his side as he does on his back!

    Sometimes just losing weight can help prevent snoring. Snoring, especially where breathing is interrupted, can cause tiredness during the day or it could indicate a serious condition.

    I think I saw on a Pen and Teller show once that learning to play the didgeridoo can help. Actually just googled it and perhaps it does?

    By the way, that was the first site that came up. I'm not promoting this, only referencing.

    Hello

    Not really a moneysaving solution but, I was diagnosed with sleep apnoea a year ago. I was given a breathing macine to use at night. Before I was alegendary snorer, since using it it has stopped completely. Much to the relief of my other half.

    My husband was also diagnosed with sleep apnoea and now has a machine. Brilliant, saved our marriage or his life, one of them would have gone! :)

    Sleep in separate rooms?

    I tried ordering the Tesco anti snore pillow - it did not work.
    The secret to success is making very small, yet constant changes.:)

    Get yourself a Mandibular Advancement Device, look it up on the net, for about £25 for the basic and £120 for a fitted one. Used the basic for 4 years, worked well, just got a fitted unit, slightly better fit.
    This has been the only thing that has worked for me bar surgery!!
