    Some daily MoneySaving routines are so ingrained theyíre second nature; but you mightnít realise youíre being clever. So I thought Iíd tap all MoneySaversí wealth of knowledge to dig out those little gems. Do you keep an Overseas Wallet like me? Save old batteries because they still work in less demanding gadgets? Measure your water before boiling the kettle. Please tell us your little gems.

    As a child I remember my granny tearing out out the sheets of paper from her telephone directories and Yellow Pages and using them as loo paper instead of buying toilet rolls. I bet the DynaRod people got plenty of business clearing the sewers around her neck of the woods.

    It is only about 60 years ago that quite well off people would find a source of small squares of paper and then thread them through the corner and hang them up in the smallest room.
    Cheaper than Izal or Bronco and all three types made good drawing paper!

    Now should we talk about lining nappies with sphagnum moss?
