Weighing up whether an old landline or mobile is needed was advised.

Unwanted mobiles, unused landlines and unnecessary gadgets could be given up to save cash around the home, it has been suggested.

In an article for the Examiner, unemployment expert Christine Wodke said when times are tough, there are inevitably some things that can be sacrificed.

She explained consumers should think about whether they need to have a landline and a cell phone, adding shopping around for a better tariff may also be a wise move.

The news could be of interest to those currently selling old mobile handsets, as they may find the cash generated by recycling can be put to better use elsewhere.

Other tips offered by Ms Wodke included monitoring other gadgets on a day-to-day basis.

"Unplug electrical devices like computers and TV's when not in use. These devices use electricity even when turned off."

Last week, the expert provided her thoughts on how to tell if a job interview went well - explaining if a potential employer calls back for references, this is a particularly good sign.
