Tip No.2: Employment

To avoid all that hassle of putting up with crap and constantly being made redundant, avoid working for anybody else. Work for yourself in a business that can't be outsourced abroad.

Is your shower head caked up with corrosion? Soak white vinegar into a cloth, wrap the cloth around the shower head and leave over night.

Cleaning:

Use toothpaste to clean the fridge, it also leaves a nice clean smell.

Tip No 1: Saving Electricity.

Attach a long piece of string to the end of your bed and the other end to the toilet seat. Then in the middle of the night simply slide the cleft of your buttocks along the piece of string until they connect with the toilet seat thus saving £££££'s ($$$$$$'s) by not turning on the lights.

Save money on carpet
No need to carpet the room. Just buy 2 carpet tiles and glue them to your feet.
