What is Martin Lewis’ Extreme Savers about?
Producers of the show describe Lewis as ‘the nation’s most trusted money man’, as the show reveals the ‘implausible lengths’ people go to to save and protect their pennies.
The series began on 12 May and has put the spotlight on families living in eco-friendly horse barn conversions, those showering in rain water and others who use reusable toilet roll in a bid to be less economically burdened.
While Lewis is honest about the unrealistic lengths many will go to and how it would not suit everyone’s lifestyle, there are some key take away messages about the real and often unnecessary cost of everyday life.
