Electricity bills
 
That loud thud was the sound of your jaw hitting the floor as you opened the latest ESB bill. It seems to suggest that the entire national grid was used to power your house last month... when all you did was put on the tumble dryer twice. Log on to bonkers.ie to see how much you could save by switching to a cheaper electricity provider. the ESB is anything but cheap. How else couold they pay for all the staff "gravy"? For a home using €100 per month in electricity and already paying by direct debit.
 
Best: Airtricity two year contract €1,023.96 per year
Avoid: ESB €1,200
Saving: €176.04

Overdrafts
 
The evil chuckle of your bank manager when confronted with an overdraft application will chill you to the bone. Along with the other bank henchmen, they will grind your bones and squeeze every last drop of blood from your body if you try to borrow anything from them. Overdraft rates are plum nonsense, especially for a €1,500 much-used facility. And we bailed out Bank of Ireland... why?
 
Best: NIB Easy 10.25 per cent
Avoid: Bank of Ireland 15.90 per cent
Saving: Up to €84.75 per year on interest
