Time for a spring clean

19 April 2016

With most of the UK bathed in sunshine today, it feels as though spring has definitely arrived. Last night I started the mission to clear my clutter for a richer life by sorting out my children’s clothes cupboards into two bags of clothes that are now too small: ‘charity shop’ and ‘worth selling’. I’m also starting to spring clean my finances too.

On the agenda tonight is a look at whether my energy supplier owes me money following the UK’s third warmest winter since records began. I’m hoping to be in the one in ten customers who can reclaim more than £200. I’m also going to check out Moneywise’s energy comparison tool to check if I can save money by switching.

Too many people need to overcome their fear of switching. The key is to tackle one aspect at a time. If you’ve already looked at your energy costs, then take a look at current accounts.
