With energy bills on the rise and the cost of living crisis getting progressively worse, many of us are looking for ways to save money.
Whether it’s opting to cook with an air fryer instead of using the oven, buying a wearable blanket instead of putting the heating on or spending less time in the shower relaxing and unwinding, we’re really having to compromise on a lot of things we enjoy.
