  • Investigate network options within your medical aid.

  • Cancel the loyalty program on your medical aid.

  • Review your cellphone contract and stop changing your phone every 18 months.

  • Change the way you watch TV.

  • Buy children’s school clothes from a clothing bank.

Don’ts:

  • Cancel your short term insurance (but do shop around for the best deal).
