Don’t be afraid of switching suppliers

The thought of switching suppliers can fill you with dread and feel like a lot of effort but often the best deals are for new customers. More often than not providers take care of everything for you when it comes to switching so other than agreeing to a new contract with them and potentially giving meter readings if you’re swapping energy supplier there won’t be much else you need to do (just look into any exit fees first). If you get lucky, sometimes trying to leave your current supplier will result in them matching or beating the new deal you’ve found too.

Don’t forget to cancel old direct debits

It’s surprising how many people are paying monthly subscriptions for memberships to gyms, entertainment packages and home services that they don’t use. This is an easy way of saving money by just looking through your scheduled direct debit payments and cancelling those that you don’t need anymore, you’ll be surprised how much you save!
