Three ways to save money this week...
✿ buy own-bRAnd MEdICATIonS Swap branded versions of painkillers like ibuprofen, aspirin and paracetamol for supermarket or pharmacy own brands. In Sainsbury’s for example, own-brand ibuprofen is 45p for 16 tablets, compared with £2.20 for the same size pack of Nurofen – yet the active ingredient is identical.
✿ TEA And A MoVIE If you’re over 55, check out Silver Cinema screenings at your local Odeon – see classic
films and new releases, with tickets from £3 and free tea and biscuits.
✿ CHRISTMAS SAVERS Look out for early-bird supermarket offers on Christmas food that’ll keep, such as mincemeat and Christmas cakes or puddings.
