Written by Richard Francis // Posted on // Found in EasyLife

Saving money may seem like cutting back on the things you enjoy in life such as shopping and going out, but that doesn’t have to be the case.

With smartphones at the heart of everything we do, it’s no surprise there are so many apps available to help us control, budget and save money on everyday activities. To help you continue saving those extra pennies, we’ve picked our top six money saving apps.

Money Saving Apps

Save money on: food shopping


MySupermarket helps users save an average of 30% on each grocery shop by offering cheaper alternatives to shopping basket items. If that the savings still aren’t enough, the app also compares your basket across all supermarket stores and lets you know if you can get your goods cheaper elsewhere, allowing you to switch stores in just one click. Clever.

Save money on: household bills

Meter Readings

Closely monitor your household energy and water usage from the palm of your hand. Simply enter your meter readings and the Meter Readings app will calculate your usage, costs and savings in a visual graph that breaks down your data.

The app also compares your usage and costs against energy suppliers in your area to see if you can save even more, enabling you to switch suppliers directly from your device.
Alternatively, the big six suppliers all also offer their own apps including British Gas and e-on where users can access bills, statements and usage.

Save money on: dining out


We’ve all been there – back home from work and realised all that’s left in the fridge is leftovers from the night before. But not for much longer, say hello to the Tastecard.


Offering discounts at 6,000 restaurants across the UK & Ireland including Pizza Express, Prezzo, Chimi Changa and La Tasca, you can ditch the cold pizza, grab a few friends and make the most of fantastic 50% off and 2 for 1 deals.

Save Money on: Travel


With transport being the single biggest expense for households, averaging £72.70 a week, savings on travel can be hugely important. The Trainline app helped 3.8 million people save over £474 million last year by booking travel in advance – just the ticket.

But not only does it save you money, the app also takes some of the stress away from travelling with useful features including the ability to check platforms, show live departure boards, which trains your tickets can be used on and even the option to buy mobile tickets on selected routes.
