The voucher rule

From discount sites like Groupon and Cobone, to the Gulf News Good Living card and The Entertainer books and app (which are well worth the investment), make it a rule that you never eat out without a discount voucher.

Sell your stuff

Not expecting a pay rise any time soon? Earn extra cash by flogging stuff you don’t need any more. As well as Dubizzle, there’s My Ex Wardrobe and Souq.com for selling unwanted clothes, as well as the Dubai Flea Market.

Get a budgeting app

Free apps like Wally and Spending Tracker will help you keep on top of your budgeting and saving, while Sallety.ae allows you to compare the cost of items across UAE supermarkets, so you can ensure you get the best deal.
