I love sales, always try to get some cool clothes this way, New collections are always too overpriced and I find it a big waste of money, in some weeks all of it will cost half less, just patience :)

learn to sew. It doesn't need to be the neatest job or the right stitch, but seams and buttons are easy enough for repairing clothes. I learned how to make clothes and bought a cheap, but reputable sewing machine and bought clothes that maybe didn't fit but I could adjust.

Buy more stuff second hand, even if you don't need to. donate or sell what you don't need.

I was taught that rich people spend money to save time and poor people spend time to save money and there's a lot of truth in that. I do think in practice it's more a choice about what's appropriate for you at the time. I laid a floor just to learn how to do it and took holidays from work for it. it would just have cost me £40 and 2 hours to get someone else to do it, but I did learn a new skill. Poor people always know someone with a practical skill, but not someone who can work money, but it's learnable. I learned how to tile a floor. I learned how to cook. I once paid my rent just by cooking for everyone in the house. so everyone can learn how to make the most of their money.

it's only a bargain if you would have bought it anyway was what I was taught by my mum.

I will also say, get a second freezer, so you can buy in bulk and cook in bulk. Always keep it stocked. I can live out my freezer for three months and this year it's been a godsend.

Thank you for coming to my TED talk.
