I was casually sat down watching TV when I thought, any money saving programs to get my motivation going? I wasn’t disappointed either! There’s a whole pool of choices when it comes to television although you need to know what you’re looking for otherwise you can get bogged down and spend a couple of hours catching up on Homes under the Hammer!
I love sitting down watching television and I thought I might as well share what I found with everyone reading this post. Of course a couple might be something that you watch anyways, there’s one major show that I LOVE and everyone’s probably watched at some point, without keeping you waiting though; lets go!
1, Bargain Hunt
So I said there’s one that everyone’s watched and of course everyone (I know) watches bargain hunt. I love watching the contestants finding all the weird and wonderful items to sell. I’ve been watching the show for years and I have to say I’ve even found out that I’ve got a few gems myself hidden away and made a tidy little profit.
The show has changed hands a few times so I don’t bother keeping up with presenters anymore but the show stays the same. I find myself cheering on certain teams every single episode and can’t get enough of it! If you’re a keen antique collector or auction house goer then you should probably watch Bargain Hunt! You might pick up a thing or two while sat on the sofa having a nice cuppa!
A recent discovery that I love! Sarah goes around recycling centers picking up everyday junk that people are throwing away in order to turn them into something new! It takes upcycling to a whole new level and I love it, so much so that I have the series on record. I must add that she gets special permission from the tip to go around asking people for the junk out of their cars, if you did the same you may get arrested! Which is a shame because the wonders that come out of what she finds are amazing.
In the episode I just watched she turned some old coffee sacks into something amazing, and them chairs!! I don’t want to spoil it so I’d suggest getting the TV on and finding out for yourself. Of course she has help from some amazing professionals but the stuff they do with the rubbish people are throwing away, breath taking! If you love to upcycle and can’t get enough of cool creations, you really need to check out Money for Nothing and don’t waste.
A very personal favourite of mine and one that we’re always watching in my house. Eat Well for Less is amazing if you’re looking to cut back on your food bill. I love how shocked the family looks at the end when they find out how much money they can actually be saving all year round. I also love it when they’re trying the food throughout the show and they’re sure that they are eating food they’re not used to, when it turns out it’s the same food they’ve been eating for years!
If you’re looking to cut down on your shopping bill and not too sure where or how to start? I’d suggest watching a few episodes and picking up some tricks. Gregg and Chris really make the show what it is, I have to say though one big tip that they really drive home is not going for main brands and to maybe swap where you shop! I mean when I changed supermarkets we ended up saving roughly £300 a month! That’s mental right, if not for this show I wouldn’t have made half the changes I have!
So there you have it, three top shows that I love to watch to save me money in general. I go back to Homes under the Hammer though, I love that show and I have to say if you’re looking to do up a new house and need inspiration then you should watch it and pick up some tips.
