Money Saving Tips

Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

An article out today has listed the top 12 apps that can save you a fortune. Personally, Christmas and New Year has pretty much wiped me out for January so I’m definitely planning on downloading some of these. From train tickets to your weekly big shop there’s an app to suit almost everyone. One of my favourites is ‘0800 Wizard’, it helps avoid the ridiculous amount you get charged when calling 0800 numbers. All you have to do is type the number into the app and it finds you an alternative landline number to call which ultimately doesn’t cost you anything and is counted as part of your contract minutes. Another of my favourites is called ‘Red Laser’; it’s perfect for those of you who like to hit the high street shops looking for a good deal. All you have to do is if for example, you find an article of clothing that you really want, just hold your phone over the barcode and it scans it to compare the price of the product online and also to see if you can buy it cheaper somewhere else!! Its genius, not only that but you can then buy the cheaper item on your phone and have it delivered to your house! We had loads of money saving tips sent to us on Facebook, and you even managed to find more apps and websites to use that weren’t included on my list, such as ‘Groupon’ and ‘One for the Wardrobe’, so thank you!

Did anyone else notice that our brilliant city was featured on 2 different programmes last night on 2 different channels; ‘Weight loss Ward’ on ITV and ‘Underage and Over the Limit’ on BBC 3. Whenever Sunderland is featured on a TV programme, most of the time it’s in a bad light and we’re made to look like the dregs of society, however I was pleasantly surprised to see it being praised. ’Underage and Over the Limit’ on BBC 3 was a documentary focusing on underage drinking in the North East. In particular it followed a team of people from ‘Youth Almighty’, a project based in Silksworth who provide a safe and welcome environment for young people by providing centre based work in order to keep the kids off the streets. It was brilliant, and it’s great to know that a project such as that exists in Sunderland.

Simon and I have a mate date tonight; we’re off to see ‘Singing in the Rain’ at the Empire and I can’t wait!! Tune in tomorrow to see how it went and don’t forget to phone in and tell us your football anecdotes!!
