Dave and the boys all keep short hair styles, if they went to the barbers it would cost us approx £210 per year.
I bought a set of hair clippers 14 years ago whilst I was pg with DS1. Neither Dave or the boys have been to a barbers/hairdresser since.
The clippers cost £25 and we have had the blade sharpened once cost £5. So £30 over 14 years = £2.15 per year for an average of 30 haircuts a year and obviously decreasing.
The annual savings made from this purchase are £207.85 and the longer we can keep the using the clippers even with blade sharpening the more savings will be made.
For myself I have a long style which is kept in a ponytail, so once a month a trim the ends off whilst it is in the ponytail which gives a layered look if down, and with having some natural curl it doesn't matter if the layers aren't quite even.
The savings made by me doing this are approx £100 per year.
I'm a 45 year old SAHM,although I do now work parttime as a dinner lady; partner to Dave for over 20 years who is the love of my life. Mother to 2 wonderful boys Thomas and David.We live in the UK in a small village (pub, village school and church - no shops) approx 15 miles from nearest town.
I enjoy cooking, card making and reading, and trying to do my bit for the environment and organic living.
