AS INFLATION rises and the price of commodities goes with it, Cumbernauld's local website gives you some helpful hints as to how to pinch those pennies and save yourself a bundle.
 
Coupons.
 
Use coupons. Coupons are a great way to save some money and get the products you need. Coupons come in a variety of formats. For instance you'll get online coupons, which you only need to print and take to the shop, or you get some great deals and competitions in newspapers or on television. Some great offers are available on Martin Lewis's website.
 
Season Ticket.
 
This one is for the Clyde fans. A Season Ticket is a great way to see all the matches, with little fuss. One ticket; big savings. However, a Season Ticket, from Clyde FC will also get you some fantastic offers from local and national stores, such as 20% off of North Lanarkshire Leisure membership. Visit the Clyde FC Website for more information.
 
Local Not National.
 
Local businesses and retailers are often better than big national companies. Small local businesses can give exclusive discounts and offers, that national companies fixed prices can't compete with. You can get a list of a few local businesses on our local directory page.
