    Fool your friends into thinking that you have expensive low profile tyres by fitting a budget brand and letting most of the air out.

    Paint your tool yellow & black so girls think you're a real tradesman.

    Split the sheets of toilet paper into single ply, this saves real money. Beware of poke-through as the cost of soap to wash the offending finger can outweigh the financial benefit.

    Only go No.2s at a friend's house - that way you never need to buy any paper.

    Don't paint your power tools any colour at all so as to save on the cost of paint. Although you may wish to consider the cost of the paint against having girls think you are a "real tradesman".

    Split the sheets of toilet paper into single ply, this saves real money.

    Alternatively use both sides.

    Save money on washing up liquid in TESCO with "two for the price of one,"
    i.e. one in your trolley one in your inside coat pocket.

    So you're actually stealing the free one. Have you thought this through properly?

    Feeling suicidal?? Nip round to your next door neighbours and use their gas to kill yourself. Saves a rather high gas bill for your next of kin. ;)

    When first fixing, ensure that you run the cable so that it just about reaches the accessories without any play whatsoever, like one of my colleagues does regularly.

    When plastering a new house, cut all the new leccy cables back tight into the wall boxes. All that scrap can add up to nearly £25 on a large house.

    When plastering a new house, take a pipe slice with you and cut the radiator pipe tails back to the wall. With the price of copper at the moment you'll make at least £35- £45 off each house. ;)
