I LOVE being able to thank our super Sun Savers. Joan Fox, 73, and husband Derek, 74, have had a hard time of late. She had a knee replacement and he has been taking over the washing, ironing, cleaning, shopping and cooking — and even kept up with their Sun Savers codes.
Joan said: “He could only cook cheese on toast up until then — but he has looked after me so well.”
They are now celebrating their 57th wedding anniversary and Joan had been saving her Savers dosh to take Derek on holiday — but after hearing their story, I surprised them with a relaxing break. Oh, and we talked about some great saving tips, too . . .
Hol lot of fun: Joan’s sorted her anniversary gift for Derek, thanks to us. But if you’re looking for a bargain break, nab a £15 Sun Holiday by collecting five of the Sun Savers codes printed daily on this page from May 18 until May 28.
Bulk up: The Foxes have four kids and several grandkids. That will have made family meals costly over the years. But if you have a big brood, bulk-buy. Tesco’s £4 1.55-1.95kg whole chicken is just 50p more than its 600g thigh fillets. Asda’s 4kg basmati rice is £5.75, compared to its £1.07 500g pack — saving £2.81.
Clean up: Derek’s doing housework so he’d better get down to Wilko — they have a sale on cleaning products. Cif’s cream cleaner and Dettol’s floor wipes are both now £1, down from £2.
Sun-sational: Save on your holiday toiletries at Superdrug, where you get a second bottle of sun cream half price. Two 200ml Solait sprays will cost just £7.49.

Reader’s saving tip
DOUG HEATH, from Rainham, East London, says: “Only fill a kettle with the water you require. It boils quicker and saves water and electricity. There’s no point filling it right up to make one cup of tea.”
