3/ Prefer Markets vs. Supermarkets

Veggies and fruits are usually really expensive at Coles & Woolworth. Go to your local market and buy them from your local farmers. Much better and less expensive.

4/ Buy (Almost) expired products

If you have to go to Coles and Woolworth, wait at least for the end of the day. You will get lots of discounts from the products that will expire the day after. They’re still really yummy and your wallet is so much happier !

5/ Go to Suitcase rummages

Forget about H&M and Zara. Go to the suitcase rummages in your city and buy some second hand clothes for $1 or $2/item. You’ll save some money and offer some money to some other backpackers 😉
