Save pounds without a crash course diet, and without even changing gas and electricity providers.
Price cuts have been coming thick and fast over the last few months, which has been great news for gas and electricity customers who are willing to move to a new provider to get a better deal.
It seems to be a common misconception that when a gas and electricity provider introduces a new cheaper product, they automatically put their existing customers on this improved rate. Well, that's not true - while new customers are given every incentive to sign up, existing customers will generally continue to pay out more unless they are willing to do something about it.
A quick telephone call to your existing gas and electricity provider could be invaluable. Ask to be put on the most cost effective tariff, and you could save a small fortune.
