Ways to reduce spending in London

London is the Third most expensive city in the World, as it is observed from the table shown here

Now, Our desi's here have known ways to reduce spending so as to save money during their
short and long term of work here.

Here are the tips and tricks of the game followed by some of our people and other asians here.



* For Trasport get Network Rail Card. So that you get 1/3rd price offduring the off peak hours


* Find a fellow colleague who has a car and share the petrol price withhim for the month


* The best means of transportation is bi cycle or the lowest means isNada raaaja service


* Don't ever eat out. The best way to save money in eating is cook and dine at home


* Dont get Yoghurt(Curd) here. Bring the Curd bacteria from India and put milk over it and try to maintain the same curd.


* Bring all masalas, powders, rice and all other desi stuff while coming from
India, since they are costly here


* Also in your packing items the following should be there in sufficient quantity that should last for years.. Mysore Sandal Soap, Tooth paste,Shampoos etc..


* For Juices during dinner, get a concentrated juice squash and diluteit. this would last for days


* No movies to theatres. Get AOL unlimited connection and download all movies in home itself


* Still if you wife insists on going to theatres for cinema. Look outfor some odd week days on the day which theatres give some discounts.


* Find out days in which Newspapers give some free DVD's of some famous movies.


* Most movie rentals would offer free movies for the first month. Register,
watch movies and cancel the subscription at the end of the month.

Now i get it...what's the plan for the second month?? that's what your
question..am i right??

...You can give your wife's credit card details for the second
month..haa.haa..

* Don't ever call on a mobile to a friend. Instead give a text (SMS) message
to your friends.


* Find the cheapest calling card that gives more minutes to call India


* Identify which commodity is cheap in which superstore. Some super storesgive offer on some food items


* If you are not concerned about the quality, you can go for some buy oneget one free


* Go to museums in London which have their entrance fee for free


* Dont miss out the concerts which are conducted for free in major parkssuch as Hyde park, Green park, etc.

* Decided to get Clothes here. Hm..thats worst decision. Any way, there are some charity shops which offer good clothes for cheap.

    @uma

    thanks for the suggestion.

    Provided if each asian here
    pays me a royalty fee of 1 pound,
    i am ready to give these tips here
    in the London airport..

    Wow..that should fetch me..atleast
    1000 pounds a day...

    now..my earnings for the year would be..

    1000 * 364 =>> 364000 UKP...

    even the IBM - CEO would not earn
    this much ...
