Watched this earlier on - how the fuff can a couple that earn over £108,000 still overspend??? The mind boggles!
2 of the tips (dying underwear and keeping the cardboard out of loo rolls) made me laugh as I am currently wearing a very fetching pair of purple dyed Sloggis and have a carrier bag full of cardboard loo roll holders in the shed waiting to be filled up with seeds - nothing new there then! (note - the Sloggi pants have a lot of lycra in them and the dye doesnt exactly take to some bits and they have come out looking a bit like mens old fashioned y-fronts!!!!)
Did like the tip about putting crushed up eggshells down your kitchen sink waste to catch any nasties lurking there.....and the recipe for h/m nettle pasta looked interesting....will have a look at the website to see if there is any more info. Looking forward to next weeks show.
Had to give in and get some stuff from Asda but was very good and only got exactly what I wanted on my list - so thats £7 left over from Marchs h/k to put into my holiday fund!!
