Money saving products: can you afford not to have them?
Did you know that there are products out there specifically designed to save you money? Better yet, some of them are designed to save you money AND save the planet. A super product if you will. Knowing which ones are worth their price tag is the key to massive savings and a greener universe.
Well we’ve done all the boring testing for you and here they are, the best of the best, la crème de la crème, the super products of all super products. They’ll save you money and leave your friends and neighbours green (sorry) with envy.
- Energy saving electronics- cool gadgets that’ll save you money
- More green products to save you money
The IntelliPanel is an eight plug socket which automatically turns off your computer equipment when it’s no longer in use. Just plug your equipment (computer, monitor, printer etc) into the IntelliPanel and then whenever you turn your computer on/off all the other things are turned on/off automatically. The creators of IntelliPanel have also designed a socket for televisions which works the same way.
One of the easiest and most effective gadgets out of the lot, the Eco Button is a Moneymagpie favourite. Just plug this little gem into your USB port and then tap it every time you leave your desk. In your absence the Eco Button (don’t ask us how, we’re still convinced it borders on magic) ensures that your computer uses a little power as possible. When you get back to your screen it tells you how many carbon units you’ve saved AND the amount of money too. And all this for just £12.95.
Buy your Eco Button now.
With winter fast approaching a Radiator Booster should be on everyone’s shopping list. The booster uses a small fan to spread heat more effectively around your room, warming it up in half the usual time. Your boiler will then shut down quicker saving you as much as £140 per year in heating bills. With the Radiator Booster costing just £24.95, it’s a small investment well worth making.
Buy your Radiator Booster now.
Remoska electric oven
If proof was ever needed that good things come in small packages, the Remoska mini-oven is it. Whilst no-one could deny its eco-friendly credentials (a Remoska uses 80% LESS ENERGY than a standard oven), for many people it’s the Remoska’s cooking capabilities that really set it apart from the rest. From roast chicken and lamb chops to toasted sandwiches, jacket potatoes and pizza, the Remoska can cook just about anything to perfection – it even bakes bread and cakes! The oven is compact enough to scoop up and take along with you on your travels; all you need is access to a 240V electricity supply.

Dry soon heated airer
This wonderful contraption, £79.99 from Lakeland, dries your clothes much faster than an ordinary airer as it is heated. However, it only costs 3p per hour to run. You can save several pounds on each wash as it will replace a costly tumble-drier and it even gently heats the room it’s in so you can save a little on heating for a few hours too. It really works – bed-linen takes just a couple of hours to dry on it (at a cost of 6p) and even bath towels take just three hours (9p).
Fact: the average UK household uses 21 batteries a year.
Fact: most rechargeable batteries can be reused hundreds, if not thousands of times.
Conclusion: Rechargeable batteries will save you money!
It’s as simple as that, over time rechargeable batteries will save you money. Yes they’re a bit more expensive than standard batteries and you will have to invest in a battery charger (which, depending on the make, you can buy on Amazon for around £10-20), but in the long run they work out SO much cheaper.
Energy saving light bulbs
Switch you lightbulbs to energy saving ones and save hundreds of pounds. Energy saving lightbulbs use 80% less electricity than standard ones, which means each bulb could save you as much as £60 over the course of its life. Multiply that £60 by however many bulbs you have, and voila! Savings galore.
And as energy saving light bulbs can last up to ten times longer than standard ones, you won’t have to worry about risking life and limb balancing on a chair whilst switching old ones over. Well, not as often anyway.
This wonderful little creation is the perfect solution for children who can’t sleep with the light off. When placed in a darkened room it casts out a comforting green or blue glow, which not only looks pretty damn cool but uses ZERO ELECTRICITY. How? Well the Glow Brick is solar paneled which means it draws its energy from soaking up natural light throughout the day. Come night time it’s bursting with energy and good to glow – literally.
Vileda cleaning products
When it comes to eco friendly cleaning products Vileda leads the way. Their Naturals range includes cloths, mops, brooms and buckets, all of which are toxin free and biodegradable (meaning they won’t clog up landfill for the next ten thousands years). They also use sustainable resources so you can clean your home happy in the knowledge that your product hasn’t damaged the environment. Find out more about Vileda’s eco credentials here.

Insulate your loft and save over £140 a year
According to the Energy Saving Trust the UK could save £520m a year if everyone just topped up their loft insulation to 270mm. Five hundred and twenty million pounds a year! Crazy eh?
That works out at a saving of around £140 a year for you, just for installing a little extra insulation. Plus you can install it yourself, so there’s no need to pay out for builders.
Thermal curtain linings can reduce heat loss by as much as 25% – check out these ones from House Charm which start from just £12. You can also buy thermal curtains on eBay where you’re bound to find a decent bargain.
Alternatively, make your own using cheap fleece or a PVC shower curtain with some lining sewn over the top. For tips on how to make your own thermal curtains check out thermalinsulatedcurtains.com
