I am sure all of us, over the past year or more, have started to ‘feel the pinch’ at home as food and fuel prices rise. Disposable household incomes are shrinking and families are being forced to economise in all areas. And now with Christmas just around the corner it has never been more important to watch the pennies and shop around for the best deals.
But whilst you may have started being more careful with the household budget, have you also stopped and looked at your business expenses and how they have risen over the past twelve months? If you work from home, how have your heating bills increased since this time last year? If you are on the phone a lot to customers, are you sure you are still getting the best deal on your telephone and broadband package?
