Simple Savings Tips
Best savings tips are more important than ever, with many people trying to survive on an increasingly tight budget.
In a world where there is a bigger gap between rich and poor than ever, it is important to share tips. Hence our goal, is to provide savings tips for people on low incomes.
Recycling Savings Tips
There are many options people can consider. For example, local councils often have a city dump that has a recycling facility. Consequently, good items are made available for purchase by the public in a recycling or ‘Buy Back’ shop. So it is easy to recycle and save.
Another one of our savings tips is to shop at opportunity shops, thrift shops or charity shops. These can also be a great place to find household items at a super cheap rate. In addition, they often carry everything from crockery to second hand suits. Make sure to check out your local Op shops.
A good recycling strategy should also include ‘repurposing’ items around the home. Things that have outlived usefulness for one purpose, may be able to begin a new life with a different purpose. For example, a plastic milk carton may have a second life as a pot for growing seedings.
Maximise Your Income
You must maximise your income by any amount, no matter how small. This includes accessing any welfare benefits you are entitled to in the nation in which you reside (in rare cases some nations pay benefits to citizen living outside their national boundaries).
As mentioned, this site includes advice and information to help people survive on a very limited budget. However, we are also committed to increasing that small budget, by fighting to increase welfare payments and the minimum wage.
Socialism has been described as “the understanding that all of our people live in security and dignity” and “a government and an economy and a society which works for all.” Consequently, our content on this website is driven by supporting policies, campaigns or information that helps to ensure people’s outcomes are not determined by their postcodes. Indeed, our focus is based on the principle that people have rights to health care, education and housing.
Best Savings Tips – Food
One of our savings tips is to grow your own food. A food garden can be a precious resource when times are tough. Research what fruit and vegetables grow easily in your area. Then make the most of any opportunities to grow your own fruit and vegetables. We happily share our experience of growing food in the tropics.

It is amazing how many things you can do for free. For example, in your spare time why not enjoy a bike ride or have a picnic at the local park. Find free ways to have fun.
Often local councils offer facilities and events for free or a minimal cost. For example, becoming a local library member will open up resources and material to you for little or no cost.
Councils also sponsor events from time to time. These can include everything from free music to family fun days. These often include special occasions, such as national days or public holidays. Take advantage of them when they occur.
Vote for Savings
You can also vote for and support parties that are committed to democratic socialism in the knowledge such policies reduce inequality and help those most in need of a hand from government. Indeed policies that provide free health care and free education are always going to make life easier for the underdog!
Conservative governments with neo-liberal policies have an agenda that imposes austerity on the most disadvantaged members of our community. Keeping them out of office is crucial to avoid government policies that make life even harder for those of us who can afford it least.
