RANDOM MONEY-SAVING TIP NUMBER 30

Borrow, don't buy!
You can borrow CDs and DVDs from most libraries and although you'll usually have to pay a small fee for them, you'll save £2-£3 each time in comparison to renting them from a DVD rental shop, and possibly up to £10 in comparison to buying! Libraries let you borrow them for up to a week - check with your local council to see which libraries in your area have DVDs and CDs.
In the garden - do you need a rotivator? They can cost hundreds, better to see if you can hire one or borrow from a neighbour, relative or friend! The same goes for cement mixers, shredders, ladders, drills - you name it! 
Do your research on prices, work out if you will use the item in the future and then see where you can borrow or hire.
