Save money when out shopping by wearing a big overcoat with lots of inside pockets.

When out shoplifting walk backwards into shops so that if you get caught by store security when the CCTV footage is rewound you can prove you had already left the shop before the crime was committed.

Cut down on all living costs. Go to the butcher, get a pig's carcass and take it into the local mosque. You will be transported to one of Her Majesty's hotels with free bed and board, 3 square meals a day with no utility bills or tv licence to pay. To extend this superb arrangement, just throw your bedding on the floor and shout Mullah Milkybar and your expenses free life will continue!

If you can't sleep at night, don't get expensive prescriptions for sedatives, buy a copy of the French Lieutenant's Woman by John Fowles or War and Peace by Tolstoy for  10p in a charity shop and read it in bed. I defy anyone to stay awake for more than 5 minutes!

This is becoming ridiculous.

Don't use a whole Brillo pad to scour the saucepan. It'll only go rusty then you'll have to throw it away.
Simply cut it into four, and use a quarter at a time.

Don't bother buying address books - just grab a telephone directory and cross out the names of everyone you don't know!

I think that there just may be a few readers of Viz here...

When visiting a church, never pass the collection plate on your way out without contributing.

Simply leave 50p on the tray, and take £1 change.

If you can't decide what to have for lunch or dinner, go into a supermarket of your choice and start swearing at the nearest shelf stacker. He will throw something at you and lo and behold, your choice is made!

Worked with a bloke who always ate an orange after his lunch.
The orange came wrapped in a piece of paper with the importer's trademark on it.
After he'd eaten his orange he always folded the piece of paper up neatly and put it back into his lunch box.
I found one of his wrappers on the floor one day so I threw it in the bin.
He said ''hey I want that.''
I said what for?
He said I use them for toilet paper.

Save a fortune on swimming pool entrance fees by simply filling your own bath with cold water.  Then tip in a cupful of bleach and piss in the bath before jumping in.

"McDonald's was accused of plagiarising a number of Viz Top Tips in an advertising campaign they ran in 1996. Some of the similarities are almost word-for-word:[12]
    Save a fortune on laundry bills. Give your dirty shirts to Oxfam. They will wash and iron them, and then you can buy them back for 50p. – Viz Top Tip (published May 1989)
    Save a fortune on laundry bills. Give your dirty shirts to a second-hand shop. They will wash and iron them, and then you can buy them back for 50p. – McDonald's advert
The case was later settled out of court for an undisclosed sum (donated to Comic Relief); 
At around the same time, the following Top Tip was also published:
    McDonald's advertising executives. Why not steal someone else's idea and then claim you overheard it in a bar, you f**king c**ts."
