A great way of saving money and eating more healthily is to grow your own vegetables.
You will be amazed at how much tastier, freshly picked produce straight form your own backyard actually is.
As well as the satisfaction of producing something for the pot, gardening in general is great exercise.
All that digging, planting, weeding and eventually the harvesting use muscles that you may never had known that existed.
It is great for all the family and children in particular love watching things grow.
If you start to become more confident about growing, you could even start to sell on the excess vegetables at a farmers market or even offer a local delivery service.
It is a good way of creating an extra bit of income and your customers can appreciate the real taste just like you do.
Joining a gym is likely to now be out of the question, for the revised and much tighter budget. However with only a small investment you can have your own gym in the comfort of your own home. It is also, much more convenient, than queuing up to use a club’s facilities.
Exercise equipment is much more competitive than it used to be, so shop around to get the best deal. Consider second hand equipment that has often, hardly been used but is being sold just because of a change of heart. Basic dumbbells are very inexpensive and small trampoline can be picked up very cheaply.
If you have the space convert a spare bedroom into a home gym, if not there take up less space than you may imagine.
