10. Save on DIY
If you’re planning on doing a spot of DIY this bank holiday weekend, there are plenty of ways to keep the costs down. DIY giant B&Q runs a money-saving members club for over-60s which gives a 10% discount on all goods every Wednesday – go to diy.com for more. You can also see if you can track down free gear on freecycle.org before shelling out for expensive equipment. But if you decide against DIY, be sure to visit Which? Local to find tradespeople recommended by fellow Which? members.
