Healthy body, healthy bank balance
- Plan your shopping
Plan your weekly shopping carefully and make a shopping list. Don't buy too much so you don't waste food (and money).
- Local shops and markets
Shop local to cut travel costs and check out St George's Market for fresh fruit, vegetables, meat and fish at great prices.
- Stop smoking
Stop smoking and save thousands of pounds a year, as well as improving your health. A 20-a-day habit can cost you nearly £2,000 a year. To help you kick the habit, read some of our tips to stop smoking.
You can also get help and advice from www.nhs.uk/smokefree, by calling the Smokers' Helpline on 0800 858 585 or by talking to your doctor or pharmacist.

Get fit for free at our local parks. We have put together information about walking, cycling and orienteering routes as well as eco-trails. We also have a wide range of pitches and playing fields.
- Alternative travel
Cut the cost of travel by walking the children to school and cycling or walking to work.
