AROMATHERAPY: It has many physical and mental well-being benefits but you don’t need to splash the cash on a treatment session. Instead, buy an Air Wick essential mist diffuser kit to create your own zen aromatherapy session. They’re much cheaper than the average treatment of £45. Grab a kit from Amazon for £10.

SAVE: up to £35

BLUEBERRIES: Apples aren’t the only fruit that keeps the doctor away. Research shows that blueberries are also capable of this, too.  To save the most money stock up with a frozen 440g pack, £2 at Iceland, they’re much cheaper than buying a fresh 150g pack from Sainsburys at £1.50.

SAVE: £4

SPA: Sometimes we just need to take some time to relax, remove ourselves from the day-to-day stresses and spend some time just focusing on us.  Do this with a spa day. You could take a friend to Bannatyne’s for a 25-minute treatment for £59, down from £126. Just visit  You’ll feel fabulously fresh in no time.  If you’d rather relax in your own space, head to Superdrug to pick up a Pink Clay face mask for 99p.

SAVE: £67

HYDRATE: Stay in tip-top shape with a swig of coconut water. It’s not only delicious, it’s also great at rehydrating if you have a cold or fever. Grab a litre from Sainsbury’s for £2.70.  Or try watermelon to keep your juices flowing. To get the most melon for your money, head to Morrisons for a whole melon for £2. It’s much cheaper than pre-packaged melon slices from Tesco for £2.50.

SAVE: 50p
