This time of year is undoubtedly the most expensive time for everyone meaning that the New Year will spent sat indoors trying to recuperate your money. However, it can be difficult to save when the infamous January sales have absolute must-have bargains. This week, the money saving experts at PIWoP, price drop alert service, are here to show you how to save money in time for the New Year!


Sleep on it


You’ve probably heard this age-old saying before, however, 90 per cent of shoppers frequently buy items that aren’t on their shopping list. So, this timeless phrase may have some value. If you see an item and feel as though you need to take it home then and there, go home and sleep on it. If you wake up and either forgot about it or have fallen out of love, you may have just saved yourself an extra pound or two!


How many hours would you have to work?


If you’re instantly attracted to an impulse buy, take a step back and think about how long it would take you to earn it. If you’re looking to spend £150 on the latest pair of shoes but only earn £7 an hour, it would roughly take you 22 hours of work!
